Ingredients

  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 4 (6-oz.) triggerfish, amberjack, cobia, mahi-mahi, swordfish, mackerel, or salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 lemon wedges or 1 tsp. lemon zest (optional)

Preparation

  1. 1. Coat cold cooking grate of grill with cooking spray, and place on grill. Preheat grill to 400° (medium-high) heat.
