Fish in newspaper

I got this idea from Jamie Oliver. And it sounded very intriguing to me. Is it really possible to grill fish in the newspaper? And yes, this is possible. And the result is juicy and delicious.

 

 


Clean a fish. Using a sharp knife, make a shallow cut from here along the belly of the fish, stopping at the base of the gills. Use your fingers or a dull spoon to scoop out the fish’s innards.
Fill fish with a bit of the oil, leek, lime and dill. Season with pepper and salt.
Wrap a fish in a double newspaper paper. Dip package into the water ( do not soak! Just for a minute), and start grilling.

Baking time depends on fish. But it takes for 15-20 minutes. But check by time to time!
