Tip from your Aide-gourmet
- Marinate fish for 30 minutes to two hours in olive oil, dill, lemon zest and salt.
- Grill fillets over medium heat for a few minutes on each side.
- Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve.
: Do not use citrus juice in marinades. Rather than tenderizing, it does the exact opposite, "cooking" the fish.
Citrus flavours truly enhance the taste of fish. By using the zest of lemons, limes, oranges or grapefruits to season raw fish and then sprinkling on the juice after cooking, you have the best of both worlds! Opt for firm fish for the barbecue so that it does not fall apart when you handle it with tongs. If you wish to grill lean fish, place it in a foil package first.
