Spicy grilled opah

Dave grilled us some opah tonight, accompanied by asparagus/mushrooms/sesame seeds, salad and soba noodles. It was so ono (delicious) that I had to copy the recipe below in case you find any opah in your freezer 🙂 (We use the categories to find our recipes again – so this is as much for you as for us!)
We are about 80% moved in now. The office/guest room and garage remain. We hung lots of pictures and stacked books in our new bookshelves this weekend. The house looks really great. We are so happy here, and can’t wait to have visitors! Please consider staying with us for several weeks…
4 opah fillets, 6-ounces each

Mix marinade ingredients in shallow glass of plastic dish. Add fish; turn to coat with marinade. Cover, and refrigerate 1 hour.

Remove fish from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover, and grill fish for 10 to 15 minutes, about 4 inches from medium-high coals. Brush occasionally with marinade, and turn once.
