Ingredients (serves 8)
2 (about 800g each) whole snapper, scaled, gutted
Pinch of sea salt flakes
2 tbs vegetable oil
150g tamarind pulp
125ml (1/2 cup) boiling water
55g (1/3 cup) finely chopped palm sugar
2 tsp fish sauce
1 fresh long red chilli, thinly sliced diagonally
Wash the fish under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towel inside and out. Use a sharp knife to cut 3 slashes, about 5cm long and 1cm deep, in the thickest part of the fish on both sides. Season with salt.
Preheat a barbecue or chargrill on high. Brush fish with oil. Cook on grill for 8 minutes each side or until fish flake easily when tested with a fork in the thickest parts.
Meanwhile, combine tamarind and boiling water in a heatproof bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to soak. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug. Discard seeds and pulp. Add sugar and fish sauce, and stir to combine.
Place fish on serving platters. Drizzle with tamarind sauce and sprinkle with chilli. Serve immediately.
Make this recipe 20 minutes before serving the main. Tamarind pulp is available from some Woolworths. If it's unavailable, use 80ml (1/3 cup) fresh lemon juice diluted in the boiling water.
