Original recipe is for grilling grouper, which I love, but I have only made it with Mahi-Mahi. DH and I think it's delicious, and it's quick and easy as well. We use the tartar-like sauce with other fish as well. From my Low-Fat Way to Cook (1993). ***See note at bottom of directions for alternative cooking method.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, oil, pepper, and paprika; stir well.
  2. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals.
  3. Place fish on rack, and grill 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with lemon juice mixture.
  4. Combine mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients, stirring well; spread mixture evenly over both sides of hamburger buns.
  5. Place a piece of fish on bottom half of each bun. Top each with a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, and top half of bun.
  6. ***Note: I have also briefly marinated the fish in the lemon juice mixture and then pan fried in a minimal amount of olive oil rather than grilling.

Loved it! I used freshly caught red snapper, and left the tomato off. (No good tomatoes available right now! Grilled fish is one of my favorites! Thanks for sharing....made for PAC Spring 2013.
