This recipe comes from Michael Holtham, general manager of The Net Result. Holtham previously worked as a chef and says this is the method of cooking bluefish done at the Homeport restaurant in Menemsha. “I like to taste the bluefish,” he says.

Serves 4

  • 2 bluefish filets (about 1 ½ pounds)
  • Cajun seasoning, store bought or homemade
  • Lemon slices, for garnish

1. Preheat the broiler and arrange a rack 5 to 6 inches from the broiler.

2. Arrange fish on a sheet pan. Rub any amount of the Cajun spice over the bluefish. The more you add, the spicier the fish. You can experiment with the amount best suited to your own family.

3.  Broil for 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the size of the filet. Keep a close eye on the fish. Serve with lemon slices.
