This grilled garlic barracuda steak recipe is a great home style dish.
6 barracuda steaks (cut into 1″ steaks)
1/3 cup olive oil
4 large limes (or 1/2 cup bottled lime juice)
5 cloves garlic (minced)
4 Scotch Bonnet peppers
1 bunch Escallion
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
Scale and clean the barracuda
Cut evenly into 1 inch slices
Mix lime juice, peppers, scallions, garlic and oil. and let sit while preparing other ingredients
In a bowl, combine the salt and pepper and rub the fish on all sides
Marinate the steaks in the mix for 30 minutes, adding oil-based and dry ingredients together
Place the fish on a hot grill until cooked thoroughly.
The meat should be an opaque white, fresh and flaky, and should come apart easily. For a genuine Jamaican experience, serve with traditional ‘food,’ and be sure to include pumpkin – a great neutralizer for spicy or peppery dishes.
