Ingredients

2 medium mackerel, filleted, skin on

5 garlic cloves, smashed

4 ounces butter

Salt

Pepper

1 or 2 limes

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat and oil the grates with a brush or towel.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the smashed garlic.
  3. Make 3 deep cuts on each side of the fish. Season fillets generously with salt and pepper. Place flesh side-down and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip fish over and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from grill and brush with some of the garlic butter (about 2 tablespoons).
  4. Squeeze 1/2 of a lime over each fillet and serve immediately.
