Dinner tonight was madness...wonderful, wonderful, madness. And it all started with buying a whole fish at K & S...because you can do that kind of thing there. Now I have seen my boyfriend butcher meat many times now, but somehow this seemed different. I attribute this to the fact that the meat has never still been in possession of its face. I felt a bit better about the whole thing when I learned that the fish was already gutted and de-scaled. But still. Something with eyes was inside my fridge.
Anyways, even though I was a bit freaked out by the whole fish, the preparation ended up being extremely quick and easy (we're talking 15 minutes to get the fish prepared for cooking), and the end result was great (because isn't everything made outside on the grill great?), we just had to be extra vigilant to avoid swallowing bones.
Mix together radish, jicama, green onion, cilantro (aka last night's leftover taco toppings), garlic and olive oil and stuff inside fish (in this case, red snapper)
Place fish on tin foil with layered goodness and wrap
Put on hot grill until fish is nice and flaky
