Maple Amberjack

My husband and son went fishing and and caught a lot of fish. I have not cooked amberjack before, so this is completely  and experiment for me. Amberjack has firm texture, white meat with mild flavor. You can substitute mahi-mahi, grouper or tilefish for this recipe. This turned out to be tasty experiment.

Grilled Maple Amberjack

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbs low sodium soy sauce, use gluten free if desired
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 2-3 tsp garlic, pressed
  • amberjack fillets

Combine all the marinate ingredients and pour into a zip-log bag with the fish fillets. Marinate in refrigerator for 30 min. Heat the grill for medium high. Save the marinate and heat it on stove. Use the marinate to paste the fish when grilling. Grill the fish 20-25 minutes. Amberjack is not oily fish, do not over cook. General rule for fish is 10 minutes per inch of thickness. For thin fillet do not turn over.
