Kingfish can reach up to 100 pounds, making them the largest of the mackerel family. This means that they will have enough flesh for several people to have their fill of fish. Deeply fishy in flavor like the closely related tuna, kingfish steaks also benefit from the the same grilling method used for tuna or swordfish steaks, according to Recipe Tips.
Things You'll Need
- Heavy duty aluminum foil
- 4 tbsp. bottled Italian or vinaigrette salad dressing
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Basting brush
- 2 kingfish steaks (1 ½ inches thick)
Lay a piece of heavy aluminum foil over the grates of a grill, directly over the heat.
Set the grill to medium heat.
Coat both sides of the kingfish steaks with the salad dressing, brushing it on with the basting brush.
Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
Place the kingfish steaks on the grill for five minutes.
Turn the steaks, with the tongs, to grill the other side until the fish becomes opaque and flaky, about five to seven more minutes.
