Grilled Oriental Spot or Croaker*
4 Large dressed spot
or medium croaker or black sea bass
¼ cup Soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Fresh ginger, minced
2 tablespoons Orange peel, finely julienned
2 tablespoons Orange juice
¼ teaspoon Red pepper flakes, crushed
2 tablespoons Butter, melted
4 Scallions, sliced
Place fish in a bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over fish. Marinate one hour. Place fish on a grill, about 5 inches from heat for about 10 minutes per inch thickness of fish, turning once half-way through cooking time and basting often with the marinade. When fish is tender and flakes easily, remove from grill and serve hot. Fish can also be cooked indoors by placing it on a broiler pan and broiling about 5 inches from the heat for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, turning once half-way through the process. Serves 4.
