Gay Cook’s Broiled or grilled Marinated Fish Fillets

[Gay Cook]

grilled fishMakes 4 to 6 servings

Most fish are delicately flavored and best prepared with a simple marinade left on for a brief time. This recipe offers a choice of two marinades and two chutneys for extra flavor. A fillet will take half the time required to cook a bone-in steak.

6, 5 oz  (150g) boneless salmon or halibut filets

Lemon and Oil Marinade:

  •   4 tbsp (60 ml) fresh lemon juice
  •   Olive oil for brushing Salt and pepper
  1.  Brush both sides of the fish with lemon juice then with olive oil. Leave for 5 or 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper just before cooking.
  2. Preheat grill or barbecue or grill pan on medium heat. Lightly oil grill or pan.
  3. Place fish about 4-inches (10 cm) from the heat source and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden. Fish is cooked when the juices turn white on top and the flesh flakes but is firm and tender. There is a tiny window between underdone and overdone fish, so cook just until cooked. Serve with cucumber herb sauce or mango ginger chutney.

Cucumber Herb Sauce

  • ½ seedless cucumber, cut into chunks
  • Juice and zest of ½ lemon or more to taste
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise or Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) chopped fresh dill or cilantro or
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) dried herb
  • ½ tsp (2 ml) salt or to taste

Combine the cucumber, lemon juice and zest, herbs and salt to taste.

Mango Ginger Chutney  

Makes 1 1/4 cups (300 ml) approximately

  • 1 fresh ripe mango or 540 mL can of mango, drained1 inch piece fresh ginger, gratedLemon juice to taste

If using fresh mango, peel with a vegetable peeler and cut the flesh from the pit. Place the mango, ginger and lemon juice to taste in a food processor or blender and pulse on and off just until the mango is cut into small pieces. Season to taste with salt.
