I love grilling fish. Its such a nice change . I had a couple of really nice grouper fillets and I decided to make a Thai inspired glaze.
- 2 grouper fillets
- 1/2 red onion finely chopped
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- juice and zest 2 oranges
- 3 tbsp sweet chili sauce
- 2 tbsp fish sauce
- 1/2 stalk bruised lemon grass
- 4 kaffir lime leaves
- salt & pepper to taste
In a small saucepan sauté the onion in the sesame oil until soft. Add the orange juice, zest, fish sauce, chili sauce, kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass. Reduce by half and set aside.
Prepare your grill for indirect heat medium high.
Season the grouper fillets with salt & pepper and place on the grill. Grill for 15-25 minutes depending on the thickness of your fillets. The fillets should be semi firm to the touch. Glaze the grouper with the sweet chili orange glaze then grill for 5 more minutes. Repeat the glaze then remove from grill. Serve with remaining glaze.
I served the grouper with a mango, purple & red pepper slaw with sweet basil chiffonade.
