  • Juice of 2 fresh limes
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • In a shallow glass or earthenware bowl combine the marinade ingredients and leave the fish in this for 15 minutes, turning them occasionally.

  • When you place the fish on the grill rack, make sure they are well coated in the marinade and chives as the latter are appealing to the eye as well as the taste buds.

  • The skin of the fish will be crisp and the tails slightly charred.
