Grilled Red Drum
Things you need:
- Aluminum foil
- 2 large fresh Redfish fillets with skins on (it will stay juicier as it cooks)
- Garlic powder
- Cajun seasonings (optional to add a little kick)
- Salt and Pepper–to taste ( I don’t use salt or pepper if I use the Cajun seasoning)
- 1 lime
- 1 Lemon Juiced (you can use jar juice, it’s just a bit bitter and overpowering)
- 1 stick of butter
- 2 gloves garlic- minced
- Worcestershire Sauce- Just a drop or 2
One thing about grilling fish in general is that it’s kind of a no brainer and pretty easy AND it keeps any fish smells out of your kitchen.
Tear off enough foil that you will be able to wrap both fillets individually. Coat both sides of fish, generously, with olive oil. Place skin-side down on the foil. Sprinkle with garlic powder and other seasonings. Squeeze ½ lime on each fillet. Fold the foil up, but leave it open at the top so you can test when the fish is done. Grill it until it’s white and flaky.
Meanwhile, make your lemon butter sauce.
Melt butter in a frying pan, add minced garlic, a drop of Worcestershire (or to taste), and juice from one lemon. Whisk it until it’s all mixed well. Cook over medium heat for a few minutes just to combine the flavors a bit better.
Pour over fish and garnish with a little flat leaf parsley.
