Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

 

 
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh chopped chives, or scallion tops
2 pounds bluefish fillets, cut to make 4 pieces
1 small red onion, cut into thin slices
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper




In a small bowl, combine the oil, grapefruit juice, lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1 tablespoon of the chives.

Put the fish, skin-side down, in a shallow glass dish or stainless-steel pan. Scatter the onion over the fish. Pour half of the citrus dressing over the top; let marinate for about 15 minutes.

Heat the broiler. Put the fish, skin-side down, on a broiler pan or baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Top with the onion. Broil the fish, about 6 inches from the heat if possible, until just done, about 5 minutes for 3/4-inch-thick fillets.

Pour the remaining dressing over the hot fish and sprinkle with the remaining tablespoon of the chives.


Wine Recommendation: Just as the citrus here flatters the fish, a light white wine with lots of acidity will balance its oiliness while matching the grapefruit and lime flavors. Try a vinho verde from Portugal or a sauvignon blanc from South Africa.
