Grilled Bluefish

Bluefish is an overlooked and under appreciated fish. Its dark brown flesh does not look appetizing while raw. But when grilled, this fatty fish turns into a culinary wonder. Its flesh is succulent and juicy and grilling gives it a slightly smoky flavor.

Zest of 1 lemon

Juice of 1 lemon
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

1 Tbsp chopped dill
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro (or parsley)
2 Lb bluefish fillet

*Mix all the ingredients on the left except for fish in a glass or plastic container that can hold the fish in one layer. *Cut the fish into 4 serving pieces and add them to marinade skin side up.
*Let stand at room temperature 10-20 minutes.
*Preheat the grill to high.
*Right before putting the fish on the grill brush grill with oil.
*Grill bluefish on the flesh side for 4 minutes.
*Turn the fish onto its skin, baste with marinade and grill for another 4 minutes for 1" thick fillets. (The cooking time will vary based on the thickness and width of the fish pieces.)
*Top each piece with a teaspoon of garlic herb butter and serve.
