Grilled Pompano w/ Tangy Ginger Sauce

Provided by Food and Wine Magazine

Ginger's heat is more aromatic than incendiary, but it does give this fish a definite kick.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce or soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Four 6-ounce pompano fillets
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup cilantro sprigs

    Directions

    Light a grill. In a small bowl, mix the sugar with the lime juice, ginger, fish sauce and garlic. Season the pompano fillets with salt and pepper and grill over a hot fire for about 3 minutes per side, or until just cooked through. Transfer the fish to a platter or plates. Spoon the sauce over the top, garnish with the cilantro and serve.

    Serves 4
