Grilled Pompano with Tangy Ginger Sauce

Yield 4
Ginger's heat is more aromatic than incendiary, but it does give this fish a definite kick.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice.
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce or soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Four 6-ounce pompano fillets
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup cilantro sprigs.

How to Make It

  1. Light a grill. In a small bowl, mix the sugar with the lime juice, ginger, fish sauce and garlic. Season the pompano fillets with salt and pepper and grill over a hot fire for about 3 minutes per side, or until just cooked through. Transfer the fish to a platter or plates. Spoon the sauce over the top, garnish with the cilantro and serve.
