Grilled Fish with Baby Potatoes and Asparagus Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


Baby Potatoes (see recipe below)
Grilled Asparagus (see recipe below)
Juice from one freshly-squeezed lime
3 teaspoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
Firm white fish fillets (such as Cod, Halibut or Tilapia fillets)
Fresh dill (for garnish)
1 tablespoon capers (for garnish)



In a small bowl, combine lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Place fish (of your choice) into a large dish and brush with lime juice mixture about 20 minutes before grilling; set aside until ready to grill.

Preheat barbecue or gas grill.  Oil grilling rack, and adjust height to between 4 to 6 inches from heat.

While the fish is marinating and the grill is preheating, prepare the asparagus for grilling and start cooking the Baby Potatoes.

Grill fish approximately 5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. (fish will be slightly opaque in thickest part). Remember the fish continues to cook after it is removed from the heat source. Carefully remove the fish from the grill and transfer onto individual serving plates.

Thermapen ThermometerThis is the type of cooking and meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. To learn more about this excellent thermometer and to also purchase one (if you desire), just click on the underlined: Thermapen Thermometer.

Divide the cooked Baby Potatoes and Grilled Asparagus with the cooked fish on the serving plates.  Garnish with fresh dill leaves and capers.

Optional:  Have lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the plated food.  Try using smoked salt on the fish and asparagus for a nice touch.

Makes 2 servings.
