VOTE: Star vs. Chopped Grilled Fish Showdown

Grilled Fish Showdown

We challenged two prestigious groups — Chopped judges and Food Network Star winners — to a summer recipe showdown. All season long, we’ll present head-to-head matchups of mouthwatering summer recipes from each team — from refreshing cocktails to fresh farmers’-market salads to the juiciest backyard burgers. By voting each week here on FN Dish or on our Fan Feed, you’ll determine the winning recipes.

At the end of the summer, the team that tallies up the most wins will celebrate with an all-star Labor Day party menu. Who will prevail as Summer Showdown champion — Star or Chopped?

This week, Melissa d’Arabian and Marcus Samuelsson are serving up fresh, fuss-free grilled fish dishes. Whose makes the cut for your grill-out menu? Cast your votes below!

Grilled Fish Showdown: Melissa’s Grilled Fish Skewers vs. Marcus’s Tea-Glazed Grilled Salmon

Use firm white fish like cod, haddock or halibut for Melissa's kebabs, layering the pieces of fish with zucchini, yellow squash and cherry tomatoes. Her bright chimichurri sauce laced with fresh basil and parsley is a cinch to whip up in the food processor.

Marcus makes a flavorful glaze for grilled salmon with tea, cardamom pods and star anise. Reserve some of the syrup for serving, and brush the rest over the fillets an hour before grilling to let them marinate.

Which fish dish tempts you to fire up the grill?
