Season the fish inside and out and score the skin on both sides. Set aside until needed.

For the basting sauce:
Mix all the ingredients together in a small saucepan and simmer until the butter is melted. Set aside to cool slightly.

Baste the inside of the fish with the sauce and place the soaked apricots and orange slices inside. Tie the fish with string and baste the outside with the sauce. Grill over the coals until cooked and golden. Serve with extra grilled lemons.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
