Ingredients

  • 6 (8-ounce) snapper or grouper fillets

Rub fish fillets with oil. Sprinkle evenly with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper.

Arrange thyme sprigs on hot charcoal or hot lava rocks on grill. Coat food rack with vegetable cooking spray; place on grill over high heat (400° to 500°). Place fish on rack, and grill 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes with a fork.
