Grilling up whole fish may seem scary, but if you have the right equipment, it’s surprisingly easy and fast. Here, we cook the fish on a sturdy cast-iron grill pan or PC® Non-Stick Grill Sheet rather than directly on the grill grates to get all the smoky flavour without the hassle of fish sticking to the grates. Cutting slits in the fish helps it to cook faster and makes it easy to tell when it’s done.

How to make

Ingredients

How to make

  • Step 1

    Salsa: Stir together jalapeño, chopped cilantro, lime juice, minced shallot and 1 tsp (5 mL) oil in small bowl. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Fish: Preheat barbecue to medium. Lightly mist cast-iron grill pan with cooking spray or brush with oil. Alternatively, use PC® Non-Stick Grill Sheet large enough to fit both fish.

  • Step 3

    Place fish on work surface. Using sharp knife, cut 2 or 3 slashes on each side of both fish, about 1/2-inch (1 cm) deep and spacing about 1-inch (2.5 cm) apart. Rub seasoning mix all over both fish, into cavity and slashes, dividing evenly. Stuff each cavity with lime, sliced shallot and cilantro sprigs, dividing evenly.

  • Step 4

    Transfer fish to prepared grill pan or PC® Non-Stick Grill Sheet, spacing slightly apart. Place on grill and close lid. Cook until grill-marked on one side, 8 to 10 minutes. Carefully flip fish over, using tongs and large spatula. Close lid and cook until fish is golden and crisp all over and flesh flakes easily when tested with fork, 6 to 8 more minutes.

  • Step 5

    Sweet Peppers: Meanwhile, toss sweet peppers with 2 tsp (10 mL) oil and the salt in large bowl. Once fish have cooked 8 to 10 minutes, add sweet peppers directly to grill (or in grill basket); close lid and cook, turning a few times, until softened and grill-marked, 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Transfer fish and sweet peppers to serving platter. Spoon salsa over top of fish.

  • Try this:

    Serve with warmed tortillas to make tacos, or alongside steamed rice or grilled baguette.
