Cavendars Greek Seasoning or Paul Prudhommes Seafood Magic
brush fish filets with olive oil and sprinkle with either of the products listed above
(not both). Amount of time to be allowed for grilling will depend on the thickness of your
fish, usually around 4-5 min. per side unless filets are thin. Use a fish basket for
orange roughy as it will fall apart and into the fire.
You can put veggies such as zucchini or summer squash (sliced long ways), corn in the
shuck, onions brushed with a bit of olive oil on the grill alongside the fish. Roasted
peppers add a special touch to any grilled or bbq meal.
