Monahan's Seafood Market | Fresh Whole Fish, Fillets, Shellfish, Recipes, Catering & Lunch Counter-Ann Arbor, Michigan

Serves 4

  • 1-  3 1/2 1b. or 2 – 1 1/2-1 3/4 lb. whole yellowtail snapper, scaled, gutted and gilled
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt, pepper

Score yellowtail on both sides about 2 inches apart. Season with kosher salt and pepper and let rest for 10-15 min. Baste with olive oil and place on a clean oiled grill. Grill for a total time of 10 min. per thickness of fish. The larger yellowtails will go around 5-7 min. a side and the smaller 1 1/2 lb. size will grill about 4-5 min. a side or until just opaque at the spine at the thickest part of the fish.

A tip on keeping the crispy skin from sticking to the grill- A clean oiled grill, a lightly basted fish (all around) and let the fish brown before trying to flip- don’t move the fish till your ready to flip it! I use two spatulas to carefully flip.
