Grilled Triggerfish

How to Make It

Step 1

Pat fillets dry with paper towels, and let stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Meanwhile, coat cold cooking grate of grill with cooking spray, and preheat grill to 400° (medium high) heat.

Step 2

Brush both sides of fish with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place fish on grate, and grill, covered with grill lid, 4 minutes or until grill marks appear and fish no longer sticks to grate.

Step 3

Carefully turn fish over, using a metal spatula, and grill, without grill lid, 2 minutes or just until fish separates into moist chunks when gently pressed. Serve with Strawberry-Blueberry Relish.

Step 4

GRILLING IS BEST FOR: Thin fillets or steaks that are 1/2 to 1 inch thick, such as triggerfish, tilapia, mahi mahi, tuna, swordfish, and trout.

Step 5

EXPERT ADVICE: First, make sure your grill is clean and hot. Flip once, and don’t rush. The fish is ready to turn when it releases easily from the grate without tugging or tearing.

RECIPE BY SOUTHERN LIVING

 Ingredients

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°. Pat fish dry with paper towels, and let stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Step 3

Bake at 425° for 4 to 5 minutes or until fish is opaque. Remove skillet from oven, and place fish, seared side up, on a platter.

Step 4

Wipe skillet clean. Cook butter in skillet over medium heat 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until butter begins to turn golden brown. Pour butter into a small bowl. Whisk in vinegar, shallot, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

SEARING IS BEST FOR: Nearly any type of fish, but is easiest with firm fillets that are at least 1 1/2 inches thick, such as grouper, halibut, sea bass, and striped bass.

Step 6

EXPERT ADVICE: Make sure the pan is hot before adding fish. Press very lightly with a spatula while cooking for even searing.
