Grill the fish.

While fish rests, lightly brush grill pan or grill with olive oil. Heat to medium-high heat.

Once grill pan/grill is hot, lay fish down onto grill, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook fish in two batches if needed.

Grill for 7-8 minutes on the first side depending on the thickness of the steak. Do not move the fish or you won’t get pretty grill marks.

Flip and cook for an additional 7 minutes.

Eliana loved this dish! She was really excited about the fish, then she tasted the sauce separately. When she tasted the sauce and fish together, she actually squealed. She asked for this dish again the following day :).

 

I served the fish alongside some farro, asparagus and broccoli.
