Finish off the meal with any of my delicious paleo desserts and you are sure to have some happy tummies!  Tina










3 Tablespoons each fresh lime juice and gluten-free Asian fish sauce

2 stalks fresh lemongrass, the bottom third yummy part only, sliced

2 Tablespoons light neutral honey

¼ Teaspoon molasses (optional)

1 Tablespoon each peeled chopped fresh ginger and olive oil

1 large jalapeño chili, sliced (optional if you do not like spicy)

1 shallot, sliced (use a small onion if you are doing this on a whim and no shallots at hand)

2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped

4 (6-oz.) ¾-in thicker fish such as halibut, cod, sea bass, or even domestic catfish fillets halved lengthwise

Olive oil for brushing on the fish

8 (12-in) bamboo skewers, about a ½-in wide



Process all marinade ingredients in a food processor until pureed.

Pour marinade into a large food-storage bag.

Add fish fillets.

Close bag and turn to coat.

Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, turning bag once or twice

Soak skewers in water 10 minutes before using.

Heat an outdoor gas grill, or prepare coals for a charcoal grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat.

Remove fillets from marinade.

Wipe excess marinade from fillets with a paper towel.

Take skewers out of water and let sit.

Brush skewers with olive oil, then carefully thread lengthwise through fillets.

Brush the cooking grates clean and oil the grill rack.

Lightly brush fillets with oil.

Grill skewers over direct heat until you can turn them without sticking, 3 to 4 minutes.

Grill 4 minutes more or until barely opaque in the thickest parts.

NOTE: I do recommend you reserve ⅓ of the marinade to serve on the side in case someone would like to add some or use as a side “dip”.


Thank you Tina!
