Fish in a Basket

Recommended Posts

I have not rigged up my rotisserie yet but have been dying to use the flat rotisserie basket that I bought from @Keith OctoForks.  The basket depth is adjustable and so could imagine using it to hold and flip fiddly chipolata sausages and small, delicate fish like these red mullet.

These peppers got a little bit closer earlier - they were actually cooked on the coals for ten minutes to get the skin black and ready to peal off.


Delicious Sunday lunch!  Did I say I was loving my KKs?

Great looking meal I like that basket

Yeah, me too @Bruce Pearson, I thought of titling the post, "ad for flat basket".  I plan to use to for lots else.

Never seen your fish before, must be a local species that's not exported. 

Red mullet is really delicious.  I live near the sea and clear out our local fish market whenever they have some in.
