Spicy Grilled Fish

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

This is a really tasty, economical and different way to enjoy fish! Lots of flavor from the marinade and easy clean up! Winners in my book. I am sure this would work very well on any firm, mild fish. When I made this I was a little crunched in the time department so I only got to marinade it for 1 hour and it was delicious. Plan ahead! This is best marinated for at least an hour but no more than 2 hours. In a pinch, just let it marinate while the grill is heating.

Mmmm, yummy fish! I have a hard time getting my DH to eat fish, but he loved this one! I used whitefish fillets and lime juice instead of lemon. It marinated for about 30 mins because I was in a hurry, but they came out so moist and flavorful.That's probably why they weren't so red in the pic. Also, I used my cast iron skillet and not the grill on a rainy day. Thank you mama! Made for Bevy Tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine lemon juice, soy sauce, vegetable oil, ginger, garlic, green onions, minced onion, paprika and cayenne pepper and stir to mix well.
  2. Place fish in a zipper seal bag and pour liquid mixture over it. Seal and marinate in the refrigerate for about 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Oil grill grate or fish basket really well and preheat grill to medium high. Grill fish for 4 minutes on each side. Flip the fish only once and brush with reserved marinade when flipped.
  4. NOTE: Fish is completely cooked when the color turns from translucent to opaque (white) or has reached a 150 degree F internal temperature. Resist the temptation to over-cook fish until it "flakes," which indicates the fish is becoming dry.
