Because it's fair food season. You know, fried food (on a stick)?
And rather than eating this.....(confession, I swoon for funnel cake)
Or this.....(confession, if I had one wish it would be to have corn dogs be good for you) (just kidding- maybe if I had 20 wishes I would use one on that)
I think you should have some fish instead.
You know, for your health!
Grilled Fish Sticks
6-8 oz white fish (halibut, cod, etc), sliced into 1" thick slices
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, pressed and finely minced
1/2 tsp fresh rosemary
1/2 tsp fresh thyme
1/2 tsp fresh basil, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
Dash ground black pepper
Olive oil spray
6-8 wooden skewers
Combine water, oil, lemon, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper in a large plastic bag (quart size will do). Add fish strips and place in refrigerator for 1-3 hours.
Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes.
Preheat grill to medium heat and spray well-cleaned rack generously with olive oil. Place soaked skewers lengthwise through fish strips. Use a paper towel to gently blot fish of moisture (this will ensure that fish does not stick to the grill). Place fish sticks onto the grill and cook for ~ 10 minutes, flipping halfway (if desired- not entirely necessary).
Remove and serve immediately!
