Grilled Amberjack with Country-Style Dijon Cream Sauce

Prepare the cream sauce ahead, if you like—just be sure to reserve the lemon juice for the fish. Pick up a whole wheat baguette from the bakery at your supermarket, and steam fresh asparagus to make this meal quick and easy.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, about 3/4 teaspoon lemon juice, and 3 tablespoons cream sauce)
  • Cook time: 7 Minutes
  • Prep time: 2 Minutes


  • 2 teaspoons salt-free steak grilling blend (such as Mrs. Dash)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • Cooking spray


1. Combine steak seasoning and tarragon in a small bowl; set aside.

2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Coat fillets with cooking spray, and rub with seasoning mixture. Add fish to pan. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until fillets flake easily when tested with a fork.

3. While fish cooks, grate 1 teaspoon rind from lemon; squeeze juice to measure 1 tablespoon. Reserve lemon rind for Country-Style Dijon Cream Sauce.

4. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 serving plates. Drizzle fillets evenly with lemon juice, and top with a dollop of cream sauce.
