A lesson from the Caribbean: For the best grilled fish, sauce it twice

Barbados Grilled Fish

Barbados Grilled Fish

On the island of Barbados, meaty and moderately rich wahoo is the fish of choice for marinating in a fragrant lime-spiked garlic, chive and onion puree. We found mahi mahi fillets to be a great stand-in for hard-to-find wahoo. Or you could use swordfish or halibut, but if the pieces are thicker than 1 inch, they will take slightly longer to cook. If the fish you purchased was previously frozen or seems particularly wet, refrigerate it on a paper towel–lined plate for a few hours before marinating. This will remove excess liquid that otherwise would prevent the fish from browning.
