Barbecued Roasted Pepper Rockfish

Fish - Rock fish. A large perch also is good.
Fish Rub - I like black pepper or Old Bay.
Fruit - I like lime and mango. Lemon, orange, peach are also good.
Roasted and Diced medium hot Pepper - I like red and green jalapeños.
Minced Garlic and/or red onion.
Butter and light olive oil.
Charcoal briquettes and smoking wood - I like mild apple wood.

While briquettes are heating up, roast peppers over the hot heat/flame. The roasting mellows the heat and adds a delicious roasted flavor. Scrape skin off the peppers with a knife, remove the stem, seeds, and inside (for hot peppers). Combine diced roasted pepper, minced/diced fruit, minced garlic and butter in small steel pan on the edge of grill. Dice all of these ingredients so they are about the same size. Do not overcook where the individual flavors are unrecognizable.

Dry rub or put some light olive oil then rub the fish. Cook on the hot portion of the barbeque until over half cook. I like mine crispy on the outside. Toss some wet smoking wood on the briquettes. Put the seared fish on a small piece of aluminum foil and cover with the roasted pepper mix. Cover the barbecue to finish cooking the fish and allow the smoke from the wood to lightly flavor the fish. I serve with a hearty vegetable/rice dish and a green salad. Mississippi Mud (Beer from Trader Joes) or your favorite beer.

Seafood Buffet night at the Presido was great in its day!

My best guess on this dish.

A nice thick fillet of Pacific Halibut. California Halibut will also work.
Whipping Cream
Chopped Dill
Mushrooms if desired
Chopped Parsley
Shallot or Maui Onion - omit if not desired
Dry Vermouth or Sherry
Light Olive Oil or Butter

Brush fish with light olive oil and season with salt and white pepper if desired. Bake at 375F in large Pyrex baking dish until fish is almost cooked through about a half hour.

Finely dice shallot and sauté in light olive oil. Add chopped parsley, chopped dill and dry Vermouth in small pan with sautéed shallots. Add whipping cream and flour. Whisk until uniform consistency and desired thickness. Allow Pyrex pan to cool a little. Then pour cream sauce over fish and finish off in oven at 350F.

Serve with pasta and salad.

Oh Man!

I'm your new biggest fan!

I keep my charcoal Weber out front in the bushes (screw the HOA) for tips such as this.
