Summertime and nothing I love more than grilling! With the occasional burger or sausage being grilled, I get cravings for some good, old fish. There is nothing like the smell of a beautifully seasoned fish over a nice hot fire. The best part, it is pretty easy and not as difficult as some people think. For my recipe below, I show you how to grill some nice sea bass, but any meaty fish will do. Try it out today!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
3 large meaty fish like sea bass, porgy, branzino, cleaned and scaled (I used sea bass)
1 lemon, sliced in ¼ in slices
A handful of fresh thyme
A handful of fresh oregano
Zest of one lemon
Red chili flakes
- In a small bowl, add 3 tablespoons of salt, 1 tablespoon of black pepper, ½ tablespoon of red chili flakes, ½ tablespoon of oregano, the lemon zest, two drops of olive oil, and mix together
- Make sure the fish is dry. Coat the fish with the spice rub inside and out. Evenly stuff each fish with the lemon, thyme, and oregano
- Whether charcoal or gas grill, get a nice, even fire going. You’re going to need a high heat
- Transfer the fish over to a grill basket and place a few lemon slices between the fish and the basket on both sides
- Using a lemon slice, rub the grill grate to get some flavor. Add some olive oil to a paper towel and rub the grill grate. Use tongs to hold the paper towel so you don’t get burned. Add the fish on the grill and let it cook evenly on both sides, about 8-10 minutes on both sides
- Serve and enjoy!
