Australian Spicy Ginger Grilled Fish Steaks

Great Barbecue recipe!

Note: This was submitted by an anonymous reader back in 2004 and was designed for the grill. I will update it at some point with times, temperatures, etc. to make it smoker worthy.

Difficulty Rating: easy

Serves: 4

4 fish steaks (about 8-10 ounces and 1-inch thick each. Swordfish, Halibut or Salmon are all good with this recipe)
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp fresh ginger root, grated
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 black pepper

In a bowl, combine the lime juice, 1 tablespoon oil, ginger,
cayenne pepper and enough freshly ground black pepper to suit your
taste. Marinate the fish in the marinade for 45-60 minutes. Turn
steaks 2-3 times. Preheat the grill or smoker. Grill the fish, brushing several times with the marinade, until cooked through and opaque in the center. You should need to turn the steaks after about 4/5 mins)

      Jack, I definitely need to up my fish game a little bit.. I like fish, don't love fish (that's my excuse) ;-)

      I will make a note to do some halibut soon and see how it goes.
