Gourmet Grilled Fish


  • 1 1/2 lbs plums, pitted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, minced

  • 2 Tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp chives, chopped

  2. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  3. Score skin side of fish.
  4. Combine mustard, fish sauce, honey, parsley, and chives. Stir in oil. Brush mixture over the fish.
