We’re not talking smelly canned stuff, here. We’re talking about thick, fresh cuts of tuna steaks that you can season liberally and throw on the grill without worrying it’ll fall through the grates. This Asian Grilled Tuna with wasabi aioli could be enough to get your mind off burgers for a while.
A hearty red snapper may also be your new summertime favorite, as this ever-popular white fish stands up to the grill well when cooked whole. The skin helps keep the tasty meat from getting overcooked, so you’ll have one less concern on your mind when trying to tackle this awesome Snapper with sautéed Pepper Sauce recipe.
This oily fish has become quite a staple in American households, as it’s meaty enough to satisfy even the burliest of dudes, yet light enough that calorie-counters don’t have to fear for their waistlines. Its somewhat strong flavor lends itself nicely to the smokiness that the grill will impart, and will even stand up to the spices in this Chili lime grilled salmon recipe.
4. Mahi Mahi
If you’ve been steering clear of this type of fish for fear that you’ll inadvertently consume dolphin meat, take a breath and relax, because Mahi Mahi is unrelated to the aquatic mammal, despite its moniker of “dolphin fish.” Not only is this seafood one of the more sustainable options out there, it’s also meaty and delicately flavored. Try this Lime ginger mahi mahi for a light, zesty version of the grilled fish.
Of all the types of fish you could grill, swordfish may possibly be the best choice. It’s very firm, which means you’ll get great grill marks, and tastes great whether you go simple, seasoning with olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper, or want to go all out, like with these Sweet and sour grilled swordfish kaboobs.
