I visit my dad in NC, and he lives right near Wrightsville Beach. I don't recall if he gave me this recipe, or we found it in the paper, but we had great results!

  • 2 Tbsp
    fresh lemon or orange juice
  • 1/4 c
    olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp
    sesame oil (optional)
  • 1 tsp
  • 1/4 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp
    ground ginger
  • 1 clove

  • 2 tsp

  • 2 lb
    fresh orange roughy, grouper, or swordfish

How to Make Wrightsville Beach Grilled Fish


  1. Combine all ingredients, except fish, in small bowl. Mix well. Pour over fresh fish and allow to marinate 4-24 hours in refrigerator. When ready to grill, remove fish from marinade. Grill until fish flakes with fork, about 10 minutes cooking time for each inch of thickness.

    Dad made for us 4-7-15. He used the sesame oil, and we used grouper as we couldn't get swordfish. He says not to use this with Tuna because of the lemon and long marinating time.
