Spicy Red Fish on the Half Shell

I got this from Donna. The method is awesome.
I made this last night but didn’t have some of the ingredients so I improvised. Cant wait to get me some bacon!

What I used

Sweet pepper
salt and pepper
garlic powder
onion powder

I also had Thai Green Beans and Pasta Salad with Lime Cumin Vinaigrette

The Real Ingredients

1 3-5 lb. redfish (or any other fish)
3 strips thin sliced bacon (cooked half way), I use turkey or omit it
1-2 pickled jalapenos (seeded and sliced into strips)
1/4 white onion (sliced into strips)
1 tbsp. dijon mustard
2 tbsps. butter (melted)
pinch salt
pinch pepper
pinch paprika
pinch garlic powder
pinch dried parsley flakes
vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray


Preheat gas grill; charcoal grill; or oven until temperature reaches 350 degrees.
Halve and gut redfish but do not remove scales. If using another type of fish leave skin on and make a “shell” using aluminum foil.
Make 6-8 slits in fish. Stuff each slit with a piece of jalapeno and onion. smear dijon mustard on fish. Drizzle melted butter over fish. Season fish with salt; pepper; paprika; garlic powder; and dried parsley flakes. Lay bacon strips on top of fish.
If grilling, apply a light coat of oil to grill and place fish scale side down; if using an oven place foil/skin side down on a cookie sheet.
Close lid to grill or oven door and cook approx. 20 minutes or until fish is opaque and flaky and bacon is cooked.
