Broiled Bluefish with Lemon-Garlic Mayonnaise

Food and Wine

¼ cup mayonnaise 

4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 

2 garlic cloves, minced (2 teaspoons) 

1 teaspoon finely chopped herbs, such as tarragon, parsley or chives 

2  ¾-pound bluefish fillets 



Preheat the broiler. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the lemon juice, then stir in the garlic and herbs. Spoon half of the mayonnaise into a small bowl and set aside for serving.


Lightly oil a baking sheet and set the bluefish on it, skin side down. Season the fillets with salt and brush them with the remaining mayonnaise. Broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat for about 8 minutes, shifting the pan once, until the fish is just cooked through and the mayonnaise is blistered in spots. 

Serve immediately with the reserved mayonnaise.

Serves 4
