Feel free to substitute other whole fish, roughly the same weight – Trout, snapper, a small sockeye salmon, steelhead, etc.
Adjust grilling time for bigger or smaller fish. The goal is to get the crispy skin, char, or grill marks while not overcooking the flesh. A wood or coal fire elevates this 100%.
If you don’t have Preserved Lemons, substitute with zest of one lemon plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. And 1/4 teaspoon salt, or just make this Gremolata Recipe!
