 1.  Arrange the fish fillets in an oven proof 9X13 glass baking dish. Pour the rum and lime juice over the fish and place the sliced onion on each fillet. Cover with plastic wrap so there is no air gap and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

2.  Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F

 Kingfish is a lean and full flavored dark meat fish. It is best to grill when filleted and the dark meat trimmed off, although it can be grilled when steaked into 1 or 1 1/2 inch thick steaks. It is recommended to use a fish or hamburger basket when using this recipe, which eases the flipping process.

 Prep Time: 35 minutes             Marinade Time: 1-2 hours               Cook Time: 12 minutes

Grilled Kingfish


2 pounds fresh Kingfish fillets

3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup McCormick’s Rotisserie Chicken seasoning (or your favorite chicken/ pork rub)

2 Tbsp butter

Rinse fillets under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Place fillets skin side down and gingerly rub Olive oil over all exposed flesh. Sprinkle Rotisserie seasoning over fillets and gently rub into meat (feel free to coat fish to your liking). Cover seasoned fish with plastic wrap, ensuring that there are no air spaces between the fish and wrap. Refrigerate and marinate for 1 to 2 hours.

 Start grill, maintaining a medium high heat. Use a non-stick spray on your fish basket and preheat over grill. Place fish fillets into fish basket, skin side down and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until the edges of the fillets turn white. Add small 1/4 Tbspns of butter over the top of the fillets and allow to melt. Turn heat up to high, flip the fish basket over and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

 Remove fish from basket and arrange on serving platter with Key Lime wedges on or around fish.
