A few weeks ago, I asked readers to share your favorite seafood recipes with me. Having lived in land-locked Midwest states for a good portion of my life, seafood was not a food item that rotated regularly on our family table unless it was from Long John Silver or Red Lobster. While I didn’t get as many recipes as I would have liked, I did get one that appears simple, seasonal and easy. With Summer almost at an end, it seemed appropriate to share this recipe as we all look to our farmers’ markets and grocery stores for that last taste of the season before Fall approaches.
So I hope you enjoy this dish and thanks Gerry for the recipe:
Super Summer Grilled Bluefish
4 pounds bluefish fillets
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon dry white wine
kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup citrus flavored seafood rub
-Place the fish fillets into a large bowl. Pour in the orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice, olive oil and white wine. Season with salt, pepper and seafood rub. Stir to blend and coat fish. Leave the squeezed lemon and lime halves in the bowl too. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
-Preheat a grill to high heat. When the grill is hot, oil the grate.
-Place fish fillets on the grill, and discard the marinade. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes with a fork.
-Transfer to a serving platter, and remove the dark blue part of the fish before serving.
