Grilled Montauk BassGrilled Montauk Bass
1 large Montauk bass, filet in half with head off or alternatively you can grill the entire fish, head on, which will help it retain more of its moisture
Fleur du Sel
High quality Greek olive oil
To prepare the fish, do not rinse. Instead, generously season the fish with fleur du sel and Greek olive oil. You may also add herbs of your choice; we like to add fresh oregano.
On a charcoal grill that is moderately high in heat, place the fish presentation side down and grill uncovered for about 5-6 minutes. When the fish has those perfect grill marks, turn the fish with two spatulas and grill on the bottom side another 4-5 minutes, depending on the thickness. The fish is done when it is opaque at the thickest part of the filet. Squeeze half a Meyer lemon on top, garnish with more fresh oregano and serve with grilled vegetables.
