"Catch of the Month" January Recipe - Grilled Wahoo with Tomato Sauce


  • 2 lbs. wahoo fillets
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 anchovies in oil, patted dry and roughly chopped
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley


Step 1: Heat grill or grill pan to high.  Brush the wahoo filets with 1 tbsp. olive oil and season with salt & pepper.

Step 2: Place fish on grill and cook until slightly charred and almost cooked through, about 4 min. each side (it will continue cooking in the sauce). 

Step 3: While the fish is grilling, heat remaining oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.  Add your garlic, tomatoes, and anchovies and cook until slightly soft, about 4 min. Add your remaining ingredients and cook another 30 seconds.

Step 4: Transfer your slightly charred fillets to the sauce and let cook for 1 more minute. Plate the fillets, ladle on some sauce, and enjoy!
