  • 1 whole very fresh fish any pacific type fish you like I used red snapper
  • coconut oil for basting
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • salt and pepper


  • Clean the fish inside and out and pat dry.
  • Marinade the fish in a little soy sauce on both sides for about 20 minutes
  • Brush with some coconut oil
  • sprinkle with a little salt and pepper
  • Place fish in a fish basket for grilling so you can flip it without sticking to grill. otherwise be certain to oil your grill.
  • Put on a medium/hot grill and cook on both sides about 5 to 6 minutes or until the fish is flaky and tender. Do not overcook
  • Serve whole with grilled pineapple and chukuchuk for a delicious Marshallese meal and a lovely presentation. I served the whole meal on a giant banana leaf.
