Grilled Fish Steaks with Vinaigrette- Pescado a la Parilla con Salsa Vinagreta     
by Cuban Cook

Pescado a la Parilla con Salsa Vinagreta               Serves: 4  

Notes: A delicious dish that can be either grilled on a BBQ or broiled.


1 On a nonreactive platter, season the fish steaks with salt, pepper, and the lime juice, rub them with olive oil and garlic, and allow them to marinate at room temperature for at least 1 hour. If grilling, prepare a charcoal or wood fire. If broiling, preheat the broiler. Combine the vinaigrette ingredients in small bowl and set aside.

2. If grilling, cook on an oiled rack over a charcoal or wood fire 5 to 7 minutes on each side, brushing each side with the marinade before grilling. If broiling, place the fish in a pan lined with lightly oiled aluminum foil and broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat source for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, brushing each side with the marinade before broiling it.

3. Transfer the fish steaks to a heated platter and pour the vinaigrette over them. Sprinkle with capers and serve immediately.
