(WSVN) - The next time you reel in a fresh catch, fire up the grill and check out this easy idea for dinner. That’s what’s cooking tonight, as we grab a Bite with Belkys.

The Chef: Jeffrey Mondaca
The Restaurant: The Amalfi Llama, Aventura
The Dish: Grilled Branzino

1 lb Whole Branzino
1 ea Grilled Lemon
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil + 2 tbsp
2 tbsp Capers
1 tbsp Parsley (chopped)
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
Mayonnaise (to taste)
salt (and pepper) for seasoning

Method of Preparation:

  • Season the branzino to your liking with some salt and olive oil.
  • Brush the skin side of the branzino with a layer of mayonnaise, it will keep it from sticking onto the hot grill.
  • Place the semi-seared branzino into a sizzle tray skin side up, peel off the seared skin, and flip back over so the flesh is facing up.
  • Finish cooking the branzino in the hot oven or on your grill.
  • Warm up some capers and olive oil and deglaze the pan with fresh lemon juice.
  • Add parsley and keep warm until branzino is ready, then drizzle over fish.
