|Grilled Ono with Aji Criollo Sauce|
We loved this dinner!
It was very, very simple. We made the Aji Criollo sauce from this post to go with this simply grilled Ono or Wahoo recipe. We were feeling the need for a healthy, lean and easy to prepare meal, so we pulled out the Ono we had in our freezer from our fish guy. It was perfect and the Aji Criollo gave it a nice kick without making the dish heavy. The male half is not a fan of sauces, but he actually like this since it was spicy and light.
You don't have to use Ono for this recipe...Mahi Mahi or most other fishes would go nicely with the Aji Criollo.
Prep Time: less than 5 minutes (not including the making of the Aji Criollo)
Cook Time: around 10-12 minutes, depending on how thick your fish is
1 1/2 lbs. of Ono or pretty much any other fish that tastes great grilled
adobo seasoning (for the Paleo folks, we will be making our own adobo seasoning soon and will post the recipe)
Aji Criollo sauce
Heat your grill pan over medium heat. Cut fish into pieces (not too thick and not too thin). Rinse and pat dry your fish. Lightly season with adobo seasoning ....you can use more...we have high blood pressure, so we usually go easy on the adobo seasoning.
Place fish on grill pan (lightly sprayed for the Dukan folks and lightly wiped with extra virgin olive oil for the Paleo folks). Cook until half way done, flip the fish over and finish cooking. Be sure to cook your fish through if it's not fresh but don't overcook or it will dry out.
Top fish with some Aji Criollo sauce. We had ours with some grilled asparagus.
Enjoy...we sure did!
