GRILLED MARLIN - DINNER AT HOME

GRILLED MARLIN
DINNER AT HOME 

Love it when I visit the market and find fresh fish that looks delicous even in the cooler.  This week I found a nice chunk of Marlin that was perfectly pink and thick.  One piece was enough to feed the entire family.  I grilled the Marlin on an indoor grill pan and then finished it in a 350 degree oven for around 10 minutes.  The fish was cooked to perfection leaving just a hint of pink in the middle.  The one thing you do  not want to do with Marlin is overcook it.  It is a firm and meaty fish and can become dry if you cook it too long.  Marlin has a mild flavor and it is always good to serve it with a sauce.  I sautéed shallots and garlic in a little bit of olive oil and butter.  Deglazed with white wine and then added some chicken stock.  Reduced and finished with a little more butter, lemon juice, capers and pepper.  No need to add salt as the capers take care of that.  Served up with some Garlic Mashed Potatoes because I ruined the rice that I was going to serve with this dish.
