Great Fish, Lousy Execution

jfood | Jun 28, 2006 01:33 AM

I was supposed to be in the Middle EAst this week and love the fresh fish out of the Mediterranean. Trip cancelled so I brought the fish to me. On the way home i bought whole Branzinis at my local fishmonger. Walked out to my herb garden and grabbed some sprigs of tarragon, some fresh lemon slices, oiled and S&P'ed the outside. Onto the grill.

What a major challenge from there. I thought I could pull it off without a fish basket, and that was a major mistake. lots of sticking to the grates, a little flare up but in the end my DW, DD and I had an incredible meal.

This fish is one of the best I have ever eaten, moist, grabbed the smoke flavor beautifully from the grill and the bones are big enough if one gets in your mouth, not a big deal in removing.

Next time fish basket for this great addition to my power rotation.
