DIRECTIONS

Make marinade by whisking all ingredients together except for fish and lemon. Place fish in marinade, cover, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. Remove fish and pat dry. Discard marinade.

Grill over charcoal for 3 to 4 minutes on either side. Remove skin by slowly pulling it away from the meat, then serve bluefish with a lemon wedge.

This preparation can also be used with mackerel, herring, or other oily fish.
