  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves, plus more for seasoning fish
  • 2 small butterflied striped bass or trout with bones and heads removed
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

How to Make It

  1. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for high heat (450° to 550°; you can hold your hand 5 in. above cooking grate only 2 to 4 seconds).

  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir salsa with basil and 1 tbsp. mint. Season fish all over with olive oil, salt, pepper, and mint to taste. Set each fish skin-down on a double sheet of well-oiled foil.

  3. Grill fish on foil about 3 minutes over a hot fire. Spoon salsa onto 2 plates and carefully slide fish off of foil onto salsa.
