Tsipoura: Grilled

This past weekend was an extremely hot weekend, with temperatures reaching to the mid-40’s (Celcius!). Husband bought us some fish, and as part of an East meets West table fare, I have decided to make an Asian recipe, and grill it the Greek way. Read about it here.

Tsipoura is a Mediterranean fish, and its scientific name is Sparus Aurata. It is a light fish, yet sweet at the same time (flavour-wise), and has a light flaking texture. It is suitable for steaming, baking and grilling. The tsipoura that husband bought was rather big – they were around 600g to 700g per fish.


  • tsipoura fish (as many as you want), cleaned, descaled and scored
  • salt and pepper, to season according to taste
  • a small bunch of parsley leaves, washed and chopped roughly
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • a few lemons, slice into squeezable quarters.
  • Olive oil


  1. To grill in the oven: lightly oil the fish, and season the fish (inside and out) with salt and pepper.
  2. Grill until cooked.
  3. Make an olive oil and lemon dressing by squeezing some lemon juice into a cup of olive oil and mix thoroughly.
  4. Serve, and garnish with the onions, parsley and olive oil lemon dressing according to taste.
  5. Enjoy!!!
