BBQ Kingfish & Vegetables

Serves 2-4 as a main Instagram Download Recipe


  • 1 South Australian Yellowtail Kingfish loin (approx. 300-400g)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Ground pepper
  • Vegetables of choice – we used asparagus, red capsicum & red onion
  • 1 tbsp caramelised balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp parsley


  1. Heat BBQ on a medium heat. If you don’t have a BBQ then a grill pan can be used for this recipe.
  2. With the skin on, slice the South Australian Yellowtail Kingfish loin across into nice little steaks. 1 loin should get you about 6 steaks.
  3. Add oil to the BBQ, so the Kingfish doesn’t stick and place all Kingfish steak with skin facing upwards.
  4. Season the skin side with salt and pepper.
  5. Add your vegetables of choice.
  6. After 2-3 minutes, carefully turn over the Kingfish and vegetables. Season the flesh side of the Kingfish with salt and pepper.
  7. Since the Kingfish has been sliced reasonably thin, they will only need 3-4 more minutes. Don’t overcook the Kingfish. If you have a temperature probe you are looking for an internal temperature of around 44°c.
  8. Remove Kingfish & vegetables from BBQ.
  9. To finish, add lemon juice, freshly chopped parsley and caramelised (sticky) balsamic vinegar.
