 Ingredients List

  • --------------------------FOR THE CILANTRO BUTTER--------------------------
  • 1/4 c Unsalted butter
  • -- at room temperature
  • 3 tb Chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tb Fresh lime or lemon juice

Combine the butter, cilantro, lemon or lime juice and zest, salt and pepper
in a bowl and beat by hand with a wooden spoon. Shape into a rough log
about 2 inches long and 1 inch in diameter, wrap in plastic wrap and chill
until firm. Prepare a fire in the grill. Position the oiled rack 4-6 inches
above the fire. Rub the fish lightly with oil and sprinkle to taste with
salt and pepper. Arrange the fish on the grill. Cook, turning once, about
10 minutes; the fish is done when it turns from translucent to opaque
throughout. Remove to a warmed platter or plates. Cut the cilantro butter
into 4 equal slices and top each fillet with a slice.
