I couldn't find a simple recipe for opah (also known as moonfish) so I just seared it and it was so good. The flavor of the fish can stand on its own.

Grilled vs. seared skin on. Skin side down and then a quick flip for grill marks. First time for this variety but turned out perfect. Needs nothing else as the taste is quite delicate on its own. Leave the center translucent for the best texture.
