The Best Way to Cook a Florida Pompano
The Florida pompano is a mild fish that's rich in taste with firm, white meat that almost melts in your mouth. All you need to bring out its subtle flavor is a squeeze of lime juice, some olive oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. The ideal way to cook the golden pompano is to grill it with the skin on.
Servings: 2 people
- 2 8 oz. pompano fillets skin on
- 1 Tbs vegetable oil
- 2 Tbs olive oil extra virgin
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 lime
- 2 Tbs flat-leaf parsley fresh
Rub the fillets with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Grill the fillets skin-side up onver a medium-hot-fire for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn them and cook an additional 2 to 3 minues, until the fish is opaque all the way through.
Remove the fillets from the fire and set them on a tray. Drizzle them with olive oil and squeeze a half lime over each.
Sprinkle with the Italian parsley. Serve Immediately.
