Ingredients
 

  • 2 fish filets
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • Drizzle olive oil on the filets and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the grill to medium high. Using a paper towel and tongs, rub vegetable oil on the grates. Place the filets on the grill skin-side down.
  • Grill it until it forms a char on the bottom and is easy to flip, about five minutes. If you try to flip it too soon, the fish will break apart.
  • Continue grilling until it is cooked through and begins to flake. Remove to a sheet pan.
  • Combine the butter and lemon juice and drizzle over the fish.
