This is a good way to get fried fish from your grill without using a lot of oil. Make sure you handle these fillets carefully so that the coating stays on.

What You'll Need

  • 4 fish fillets (cod, red snapper, etc.)
  • 2 cups (475 mL) instant mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

How to Make It

1. Preheat grill and make sure you have a very clean cooking grate.

2. Combine melted butter, lemon juice, olive oil and garlic in a shallow dish. Dip fish fillets in butter mixture and roll in potato flakes to coat.

3. Wrap each fillet in aluminum foil and place on medium-hot grill. Oil cooking grate and grill for 6 to 8 minutes, turning once. Remove when done (an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees F).
