Nassau Grilled Fish

Nassau Grilled Fish is simple and tasty.

Cruising in The Bahamas gives you access to the freshest seafood available. Conch, Mahi, spiny lobster, you name it. With fresh fish, the trick is to simply bring out its flavor with a hit of acid and a sprinkle of salt.

Please don’t drown your fish (in sauce).

Fresh fish like this cooks very quickly. Make sure to have all other elements of your meal ready to go before this gets on the grill.


2 Tbsp. oil
1½ Tbsp. minced garlic
1½ Tbsp. lime juice
1 Tbsp. minced ginger
1 hot chili pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
Four 6-oz. fish fillets, such as grouper or mahi
¼ tsp. each salt and pepper
Lime wedges and hot sauce, for serving


In a sealable, combine oil, garlic, lime juice, ginger, pepper, and chili. Add fish to bag and coat well.

Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. When ready to eat, remove fish from marinade and place on a medium-high grill. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until nicely browned, about 3 minutes per side.

Serve with lime wedges and hot sauce.
