Recipe Details

Don't judge a fish feature by its photo.  This seafood entree by Nashville's Chef Tony Galzin may look simple, but rest assured, it is absolutely swimming in flavor.  Topped with a salsa verde full of McCormick Culinary Tarragon, Ground Jalapeno, chives, capers and Grill Mates Mojito Lime Seasoning, this savory selection is then seasoned with McCormick Culinary Pure Ground Black Pepper and Kosher salt before grilling.  Get your forks ready!
