Have a ton of bluefish and don't know what to do with it? Give this a try! Bluefish has a reputation for being a very strong fish. This super citrus marinade gives this grilled fish a bright and delicious flavor. I just made some (which I caught and froze) and it came out superb.

  • Preheat a grill for high heat. When the grill is hot, oil the grate.

  • Place fish fillets on the grill, and discard the marinade. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes with a fork. Transfer to a serving platter, and remove the dark blue part of the fish before serving.

This recipe was fantastic. It gave the fish a sweet citrus flavor instead of the overbearing fishiness that is usually associated with bluefish. Read More

A neighbor caught shark and blue fish and because I really don't like the blues I had every intention of making shark. I accidentally took the blue out of the freezer and once I realized my mistake I went searching for a recipe that would hopefully take out the oily and fishy taste. I must admit that the marinade certainly did the trick. I did taste and altho I'll not likely change my mind about this particular fish my girls thought it was pretty good. Thank you Miller for saving tonights dinner!! Read More

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I don't like bluefish. I love to catch 'em. Only people raised on a fish diet truly enjoy them. No longer! I caught a 7 lb. blue. Filleted it and marinated it as the recipe called for. The fish grilled and browned up easily. It really did get firm and flaky (Unlike the bluefish that I remember.). It came out tasting a bit sour which can be corrected but the important part of this review is that because of this recipe the bluefish tasted great and is now on my official list of "Likes".

This recipe is excellent. The fish came out sweet and mellow. The next day I used the leftovers in a salad instead of tuna! Just make sure to cut the dark meat out from under the skin ahead of cooking. Read More

This recipe is excellent! I used Emeril's Fish Rub. I didn't have any lemons so I omitted them however used the same amount of all the other ingredients the recipe called for. The fish was tender and so tasty without that strong unbearable fishy taste. Thank you so much for sharing! Delicious! Read More

I'm a avid fisherman here in New Jersey! Therefore I made my recently caught fresh bluefish using this recipe expecting ummy things.....boy was I and the wife disappointed with the results. I followed the recipe EXACTLY. The fish just had a citrus flavor nothing else came "through". Maybe this would have been better with what we call "snapper" which are much smaller than the "cocktail" bluefish I used which is a bit meaty! Read More

Well Thank you soooo much for posting a recipe for Bluefish that I can say is worth making! I've been married to a deep-sea loving fisherman for 25 years and now he's got our 6 kids involved. I have 35 lbs of Bluefish in my freezer right now and I'm beyond thrilled that this recipe turned out so yummy! I Even tried the leftover recipe that another reviewer left and made sandwiches a la "tuna salad" style with mayo the next day! This was great too! Wow! 2 hits in a row! You saved the day for me and I thank you from the bottom of my Jersey heart!:) Read More
