Honey Butter Fish

Serves 4-6


  • For the Honey-Butter: In a medium bowl, beat the butter and honey together with a whisk until well combined.
  • For the spice rub: In a medium bowl, mix all of the rib rub ingredients; transfer to an airtight container.
  • For the fish: Heat the grill to between 225°F and 250°F.
  • Season the fish fillets with the spice rub. Cut pieces of aluminum foil big enough to fit each of your fish fillets lengthwise, then fold the foil into a sling so that it will nestle the fish and keep the melted butter from running into the coals. Place the empty foil slings on the grill (just the foil, you’ll add the fish in a minute). Add ½ tablespoon of honey butter to each piece of foil. As the butter starts to melt, nestle each fish fillet on each piece of foil. Leave the foil open to allow maximum smoke flavor to get to the fish. Close the grill and cook until the fish loses its translucent appearance and flakes easily when a fork is gently inserted, 30 to 35 minutes. Serve hot, with additional honey butter on the side.
