Method

  1. Combine lime rind, juice, oil, garlic, chillies, ginger, coriander, cumin, fennel and fish sauce in a large shallow dish. Add the spatchcock and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight to marinate, turning a few times to coat well.
  2. Pre heat a barbecue or grill plate on medium. Cook spatchcock, covered for 15 minutes on each side, brushing regularly with marinade, until cooked through. Alternatively, seal spatchcock on the grill for 5 minutes each side and finish off in the oven at 190°C.
  3. Serve spatchcock drizzled with sauces (see below), garnished with mint and coriander and with lemon wedges.
