Today marks 6-month since I've started this little blog of mine. I'm amazed at how much it's become such a wonderful part of my life. To all you loyal readers, I say thank you for making these past several month a very very fun one.
I wasn't quite sure which white fish I had gotten. I think it may have been halibut. It just said seafood on the label. But it was fresh. I wouldn't have gotten it, if it wasn't. Labor day meant I had to grill something. I didn't feel up to grilling any type of beef or pork as i had a nice fill of that over the weekend. My other alternative was fish. I love fish.
So the day came and I busted out the ol' George Foreman Grill since I can't grill outside. Georgie, as I like to call it, has done me some good this summer. He's made me some delectable eats.
I basted it with a simple BBQ sauce made from soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar and a little bit of minced ginger. Grilling fish doesn't take a long time, so this was done in only minutes. Several months ago I posted a cooking tip about when to flip the fish. The answer to that is to just let the fish be. You'll know when it's ready. It will basically lift off the grill without any hesitation onto your spatula. If it looks like it's stuck to the grill let it cook some more. Don't force it. That way you'll have a nice whole fillet.
As for what I served this with, I went for the Asian route. I had some left over white rice that I made into garlic fried rice and tossed in some sauteed thin asparagus. I also grilled several thick slices of tomato while the grill was still hot.
Grilled White Fish with Ginger BBQ Sauce
2 white fish fillet
Ginger BBQ sauce:
1/3 c Soy sauce
2 Tbsp tomato ketchup
112/ Tbsp fresh ginger - minced
1 1/2 Tbsp Brown sugar
Prep your grill.
Combine the BBQ sauce ingredients and let it sit for at least 30 min to let the ginger flavor really blend into the sauce.
Season the fillet with salt and pepper both sides.
Cook the fillets on the grill. 2-3 minutes per side depending on the heat of you grill.
Baste the fillets with the bbq sauce and flip. A good way to know when to flip is when the fish looks and feels like it's not sticking to the grill. Baste the other side as well.
Remove from grill and let it rest for 2-3 minutes.
