Summer Grilled Fish Recipes, The Posh Pescatarian Way

by Simona Terron
Seafood and summer just seem to go hand in hand so beautifully. While not everyone can get to the beach for some sun, sand, and surf, it’s possible to simply toss some fresh fish on the grill.

Grilling fish needs nothing more than ensuring it is fresh. Choosing local, sustainable and safe seafood is a responsibility, which needn’t be a tough choice to make. The options available these days at even the humblest of supermarkets is rather mind-boggling. And if you’re buying it from a vendor at the local market, just ask them for guidance on what’s the freshest catch of the day.

Because fish cooks so quickly, it really doesn’t need much advance preparation. Season it, grill it, and it’s ready to eat! 

Not only is seafood super tasty, it’s also really good for you. A study, which was conducted by Herbalife Nutrition Institute in conjunction with Taipei Medical University, suggests that it can work wonders for your weight too, which comes as no surprise considering fish has been a long-standing recommendation for every weight watcher’s diet.

You can make it like our Posh Pescatarian host Stephanie who whips up a mean grilled fish according to a super simple recipe. Using just grated orange zest, fresh orange juice, a spritz of olive oil, as well as some salt and pepper to rub down the rockfish fillets, she slaps them between the plates of a special fish griller and puts it on the grill.

In mere minutes the fish is ready to eat, and after freshening up the flavors with some lemon and lime juice, Stephanie prepares a delicious fish burger, with slices of red onions, beautiful heirloom tomatoes, ripe avocados, all between beautiful toasted buns.

Stephanie's Tip?  Wrap your fish in parchment paper. It's easy to prepare and brings out the flavor!

We’ve told you only recently about sushi burgers, which are all the rage right now and trending heavily on social media. If you don’t want to make a burger though, there are other ways to enjoy good, fresh seafood. Try some of our seafood recipes such as a ginger and lime mahi, an Asian-style teriyaki salmon, or perhaps a nice big bowl of mussels. If for some reason, you don’t have access to fresh fish, don’t lose heart. We even have some cool tips and tricks to work plain old canned fish and transform it into something you, and the rest of the family, will totally love.
