Charcoal Grilled Lemon Thyme Fish Fillets

  • 35 mins

Fish cooks very quickly over charcoal. The lemon thyme marinade along with the smoky flavor give this fish a very special flavor. This recipe is written  for firm white fleshed fish, but you may also use an oilier fish, such as Blue fish.


  • 1 lb of fish fillets about 1/2 inch thick (cod, Orange Roughy, cat fish or other firm white fleshed fish)
  • 1/3 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbs chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • Place the fish in a shallow baking dish. You should have for 1/4 lb fillets.
  • Combine the lemon juice, thyme, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well.
  • Pour over fish and marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  • Drain fish and discard marinade.
  • Place fish in a grill basket treated with a non stick spray and grill fish of medium hot coals for 4 to 6 minutes, turning once during cooking.
  • You may also cook the fish under a broiler about 4 inches from heat
