Whitefish: 3 Ways to Fall in Love

Whitefish: 3 Ways to Fall in Love

Adding fish to your daily diet can have enormous benefits for your health-conscious patrons and broaden the variety on your menu. Whether it’s salmon, trout, mackerel, cobia, or other whitefish, seafood of all kinds are continuing to expand operator menus and profitability. What’s more, there is literally an endless number of recipes that fish, like cobia, can be part of, and fit within any theme, from Mexican and Italian to Asian and American—as well as fusion menus that combine several ethnic cuisines.

Whitefish, like cobia, is especially popular on menus because of its versatility, uniquely buttery, and mild flavor, and many health benefits. Plus cobia has a firm texture that lends itself well to grilling because it stays firm. And whitefish recipes are never in short supply when you’re creating opportunities for guests to return over and over again.

Grilled Cobia

Because of cobia's firmer texture compared to other whitefish it’s great for the grill. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and whisk together ¼ cup of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of chopped fresh thyme, 2 minced garlic cloves, and salt and black pepper to taste in a small bowl. Take 4 cobia fillets (6-8 ounces each) and brush both sides with the mixture. Place the fillets skin-side down on the grill and grill them for 4-5 minutes per side or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Remove the fillets from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving with lemon wedges.
