I got this recipe from my favorite fishing guide, T-Kip Plaisance. He fishes out of Leeville, LA and he is awesome. He knows where to find the fish and he is great with little kids. If you ever get a chance to fish Louisiana, give him a call. He can be reached at 985-637-7251. I think it is safe to say a guy that fishes every day to pay the bills would know how to cook fish. I tried his recipe, and it proves my theory. This is a simple recipe that can be used with any white fish. I used halibut today, but this would work just as well on a striped bass, a speckled trout, or a snapper.
4 Portions of fish, about 1 inch thick
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Cup Italian dressing. You can use your favorite one. I like Wishbone.
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning. Slap Ya Mama is my favorite.
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1 stick of Butter
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons Honey
Heat a grill to medium high heat. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Combine the Italian dressing, Cajun seasoning, Garlic Powder, Butter, Worcestershire, and Honey in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat while stirring until the butter is melted and everything is combined. Baste the fish with the sauce and put it on the grill. Grill for about 1 minute, then baste with the sauce. Grill for another 2 minutes and then flip. Baste again and then cook until finished. Total cook time will depend on the type and size of the fish portion. You will know it is done when it is white all the way through and flakes easily. If you avoid contaminating this sauce with raw fish, you can pour it over vegetables or rice, or you can spoon some more onto your finished fish. If you do contaminate it, you can just boil it for a couple of minutes and then use it. The sauce will tolerate a few minutes of boiling.
