Snoek is a very popular South African fish found in the coastal waters of the Cape – it’s the fish expats yearn for and probably one of the tastiest in the country. It’s plentiful, cheap, not endangered and in season found on most Cape barbecues (braais) relatively often. Snoek belongs to the same family as the Barracuda and if you’re unable to get hold of it for geographic reasons, use Mackerel or any oil fish available in your part of the world. There’s nothing quite like it and for Capetonians grilled snoek and with fire roasted sweet potatoes is pure heaven.
