A few weeks ago, my husband went on a deep-sea fishing trip with a bunch of guys off the coast of Louisiana. He came home reeking of fish, sweat, and beer; with a three-day-old beard and a cooler full of amberjack steaks.

If you don’t like overly fishy-tasting fish, amberjack is the fish for you. It is a firm, white meat fish with a clean, mild flavor but the texture is meaty like a steak. It is low in fat and packs a lot of protein.

This grilled amberjack recipe starts with a vinegar-based marinade. The acid in the marinade gives the fish a sweet flavor and tender texture. I also mixed in fresh lemon juice, a little sugar, fresh thyme, salt and smashed garlic cloves. I like to combine everything in a large resealable plastic bag.

Grilled Amberjack Recipe

Toss the amberjack filets into the bag and marinate it for about 30 minutes. You really don’t need to let your amberjack fillets marinate much longer than that. The acid in the lemon juice and red wine vinegar will begin to “cook” the meat immediately. If you throw your fillets in a bag with the marinade and come back several hours later, you will have pickled fish. I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound too terribly appetizing to me.

While the fish is marinating, fire up your grill. Once the fire is hot, remove the fish from the bag and discard the marinade. Generously salt both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Grilled for four minutes per side.
