    Heat the BBQ to a medium heat.

    Place foil on the bench so that it is large enough to cover the snapper. You may need to wrap two pieces of foil around the fi sh if it is too large.

    Grease the foil with some coconut oil. This will help prevent the fi sh from sticking to the foil during cooking. Lay 1⁄3 of the lemon and lime slices down on the foil. Top with the fi sh. Insert 1⁄3 of the lemon and lime slices into the cavity along with the parsley. Top the fi sh with the remaining lemon and lime. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

    Wrap the foil around the fi sh, ensuring it is wrapped securely.

    Place the fi sh on the BBQ. If you have a lid, close the lid during cooking to ensure the fi sh is cooked evenly. If you do not have a lid, you will need to turn the fi sh over halfway. Depending on the size of the fi sh, and the heat of your BBQ, you may need to cook it for 20–40 minutes.

    To check if the fi sh is cooked through, carefully unwrap a section of the fi sh and carefully pull away the fl esh at the deepest part. If it is opaque all the way through the fi sh is cooked. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
