Incredible Caribbean Style Yellowtail. My Grandfather used to prepare this dish aboard his 20 foot skiff during the spring months in the 70's off the Channel Islands after a day of nonstop yellow action. Best if made with fresh fish. Garnish with frizzled ginger (Matchsticks of ginger deep fried till golden brown and crispy.)

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the white wine, Grand Marnier, and grated ginger. Bring to a boil, and reduce the mixture by one half. Strain, and set aside to cool slightly. Whisk the reduction into the hollandaise sauce, and mix in orange juice concentrate.

  • Preheat your oven's broiler. Place the filets onto a baking sheet, and dot each one with one teaspoon of butter, sprinkle with a pinch of thyme, and drizzle with 1/2 tablespoon of orange juice.

  • Broil the fillets for 3 to 5 minutes, or until just barely done. Fish should be opaque and flake with a fork. Ladle sauce onto plates, and place yellowtail fillets onto sauce.

Gruntag - this was incredible! My husband caught a yellowtail off the coast of La Jolla and we had friends over to help us eat it all. Everyone raved about the recipe - the frizzled ginger was the ultimate topper. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Read More

Excellent. Modified it by using Talapia instead which worked great. Served with jasmine rice to soak up the delicious sauce. Will try it again. Thanks. Read More

This was FANTASTIC!!!! I went out on a fishing trip with me and my buddies and caught a few of these yellowtails out there so the combination of the freshness of the fish and the addition of a beautiful bottle of wine and a spectacular recipe and you have a COMPLETE WIN! Easy quick and wonderfully full of flavor. Great recipe thanks Gruntag! Read More

The sauce was quite good but I'll use a less salty hollandaise. I would increase the orange juice concentrate. I'll probably also not strain out all the ginger. Worth a second try. Read More

I have no words to describe this dish except for the next 48. It is amazing. I recently filled my freezer with yellowtail after absolutely crushing it on the high seas so I needed some new recipes. Then I landed here. Magically. It tastes like super model angels in heaven humping on a cloud. Couldn't recommend this recipe more. Read More
