Grill-Fried Fish


This is a unique recipe for the grill. The fish is coated in dehydrated potato flakes, wrapped in foil with butter and oil, so it can fry on the grill. This is a great way to get fried fish without messing up (or heating up) the kitchen.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 fish fillets (cod, red snapper, etc.)
  • 2 cups instant mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


Preheat grill. Combine melted butter, lemon juice, olive oil and garlic in a shallow dish. Dip fish fillets in butter mixture and roll in potato flakes to coat. Wrap each fillet in aluminum foil and place on medium-hot grill. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes, turning once. Remove when done.
