  3. Rub the fish with olive oil and place the lemon slices inside the stomach.
  4. Light up the braai grill, and make sure charcoal is completely burned.
  5. Place the fish on the grill or in a fish basket and cook it on one side for about 8-10 minutes.
  6. Turn the fish over and grill it for another 8-10 minutes.
  7. Turn once again for two minutes on each side and it’s ready to eat.
