The secret of this healthy lemon grilled fish recipe is using lemon. Although you can use any kind of fish for this recipe, you need to keep it light. Light fish such as salmon or cod will give the lemon a better shine. Just remember when grilling that you should only use the grill to cook the fish, so don’t try to cook it directly on the hot coals of a traditional barbecue. This can result in undercooked fish. Let the grill do the work and turn the fish once it is done.
In addition to using lemon to cook the fish, another way to add that extra zing to a lemon, grilled fish recipe is to toss it with some tomatoes. If you’re grilling without any tomatoes, you could also use tomato paste. This makes a really good salad dressing, especially if you pair it with a tossed salad or some bread. Don’t be afraid to use whatever kind of fruit you want to augment your lemon grilled fish recipe. Lemon works great with almost every flavor and it goes great on grilled vegetables as well.
Another way to jazz up your lemon grilled fish recipe is to jazz it up with vinegar. Try making a balsamic vinegar sauce with it. Use fresh garlic if you like. A good idea is to add about two cups of vinegar to about a cup of prepared mustard. Taste and smell the mustard and decide whether you want more or less of it on your fish.
Serve your burgers with sliced cherry or lemon wedges. If you want, you can marinate them for a deeper taste. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, lime juice, salt and pepper to make a marinade. Place the marinated fish in a zip lock bag and refrigerate overnight. Unwrap in the morning and viola! Your lemon grilled fish sandwich is ready to serve.
To make sure the sandwich stays moist, you can use a little extra lemon juice or white vinegar, but don’t use too much. It will only make the salad taste worse. You can also place the sliced fish and chopped tomato along with lettuce and mayonnaise in a zip lock bag. The bag will be full of condiment so be sure to use as much as you need.
Serve up the delicious lemon wedge salad to guests. When serving, use the rest of the lemon juice on the salad to enhance its flavor. To make the lemon juice stay on longer in the salad, you can add a handful of slices of lemon or lime on top after it comes out of the grill. Place the tuna salad in a dish and add the remaining ingredients. Cover and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Clean up the grill and clean out all the utensils well. Put everything back in the grill and cook on all sides until the burgers are done. When they are done, serve up the Lemon grilled fish sandwich with the rest of the ingredients. You won’t regret it.
Grilled lemon wedges make a delicious sandwich. You can take advantage of the grilled fish to save room for a few more items on your plate. If the lemon wedge ends up getting overcooked on the outside, just place the sandwich on the outside and cut it into thin strips. This makes a wonderful light lunch or dinner.
Just because lemon wedges are simple doesn’t mean they have to be bland. You can make them much more interesting by adding variety to them. Try grilling one or two fish in the lemon wedge, then spreading the salsa onto the top of the fish. Dress the outside of the sandwich with the salsa and then place it in your container of choice.
Don’t forget about tortilla chips. If you don’t have them on hand, try using thin corn tortilla chips. A simple solution to a sumptuous meal is all you need when you want to enjoy grilled fish with a sweet and sour twist.
