Grilled Fish Recipes: Lemon Dill Fish

If you are looking for easy grilled fish recipes, look no further.

This Lemon Dill Fish is so easy to prepare and leaves the fish moist and delicious.

You can vary the fish you use. Try your favorites.

This recipe works well with haddock, and I love haddock recipes, but it would be equally good with catfish, halibut, cod, flounder or salmon.

Fish like fillet of sole would be a bit too thin for this recipe.

This recipe works well with a whole fish too. Just put some of the sauce mixture inside the fish cavity for extra flavor.

  • The instructions say to cook this on an indoor grill but you can of course follow the same directions for cooking on an outdoor grill/ barbecue. Place the fish on a cast iron pan or some pan that works well on the barbecue and follow the directions above.
  • The recipe works best if you use firm thicker types of fish like haddock or halibut rather than thin fish like sole.

  1. delicious

    I tried this, but I adjusted a few of the ingredients. I used light miracle whip instead of full fat and I used haddock as the fish. I am just wondering how you came up with the nutrition information (25g of fat per serving) isn’t fish quite low in fat? and if you use light miracle whip and a non-stick grill, there is no way there can be that much fat in each serving.

    regardless, it was delicious!!

    From Karen: I thought the fat amount sounded high too, but that was what my software said. Not sure if that’s right though.
