Charcoal-Grilled Bluefish Fillets
These fillets are perfect for the grill—we just needed to get their flavor in check.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a grilled bluefish fillets recipe that was easy and gave us fillets with assertive but not overpowering flavor. We found that buying the freshest fish was of the utmost importance, since the longer bluefish sits on ice the more pronounced its “fishy” flavor becomes. For our grilled bluefish fillets recipe we used a marinade assertively flavored with lemon and a bit of mustard to stand up to the oiliness of the bluefish. Grilling was easy; we simply grilled the fish directly on the cooking grate, where it developed a nice crust, and made sure to turn it carefully.
