Baked Kingklip with Lemon Butter & Capers

King Clip with Capers

Serves 6-8                                                                         

1 side of Kingklip, cleaned and scaled (approximately 5 lbs.)
4 tablespoons softened butter
2 tablespoons fish spice of your choice
2 lemons, halved

For the lemon-garlic butter:

1.5 cups butter
4 garlic cloves, crushed
juice of 2 lemons
2 tablespoons cream
freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley

Capers, to serve

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°c.
  • Place the fish on an oiled roasting tray and rub/brush the softened butter all over it. Sprinkle with the fish spice and cover with foil.
  • Place in the oven and allow to bake/roast for 12-15 minutes and then remove the foil. Allow to bake/roast for another 5 minutes or until cooked throughout.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter, garlic and lemon juice together in a small saucepan.
  • Add the cream and mix well (you can use a handheld blender at this point but it’s not essential).
  • Add parsley and pepper to taste.
  • Serve the fish with a generous spoonful of the lemon-garlic butter and a good sprinkling of capers.
