Years ago we bought a cookbook called “Somethin’s Fishy in Baja – A Seafood Cookbook” by Patti Higginbotham. This is one of the recipe’s found in this cookbook and I love it!!
Susie’s Secret BBQ
Susie and I once spent 40 days as galley slaves aboard a boat in British Columbia. We tried many ways of cooking salmon, but always came back to a barbecue recipe my friend had clipped out of a newspaper. It was so popular with the crew, we began referring to it as Susie’s Secret. We’ve found it works equally well with the fish of Baja, particularly cabrilla and yellowtail.
4 fish fillets, 1/2 inch thick
1/4 lb. margarine or butter
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic minced
1 teaspoon parsley
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 to 3 drops of Tabasco
In a small saucepan, melt margarine. Add the remaining ingredients.
With heavy-duty aluminum foil, make a tray slightly smaller than the size of the grill top, folding edges up to form a shallow pan. With a fork, poke several holes in the bottom to allow the smoke to come through. Drizzle a portion of the butter mixture on the bottom of the pan. Place fillets on foil pan and drizzle more marinade on top.
Broil over medium coals, without turning fish. Continue basting during cooking with butter mixture. Fish is done when center flakes easily to a fork and is no longer translucent, approximately 7 to 8 minutes. Spoon remaining mixture over and serve. 4 servings.
I have made this recipe with several different types of fish and they have all have been great!
