- Lightly oil and season the fish fillets on the presentation side then place the same side on a hot grill, until seared with grill marks then turn the fillets turning 90 degrees so the grill marks run in opposite direction.
- Flip the fillets and cook for another 3 minutes, being careful not to overcook the fish.
