Shop for this week's Dinner in Minutes
Here's a recipe that works equally well when made using a grill pan indoors or an outdoor grill. I've had fish that's balsamic-glazed or honey-glazed or mustard-glazed, but this recipe combines all three -- with garlic and lemon juice -- to great effect. No salt is needed.
The fish stays moist and easy to handle because it is cooked in 1-pound pieces instead of individual fillets. If you cook this on an outdoor grill, preheat to medium-high (400 degrees) and place the fillets over direct heat.
A slotted, flexible metal fish spatula with rounded edges is invaluable for handling large or small fillets. I recomend a LamsonSharp, which is pricier than other spatulas but long-lasting and worth the cost.
Any leftover fish would be great the next day, flaked over a green salad.
Serve with mashed skin-on fingerlings; the small potatoes take no more than 20 minutes to cook.
