  1. Step 1

    Gather ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Rinse fish off in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Place into a deep glass baking dish.
  3. Step 3

    Combine mustard, honey, oil, garlic, thyme, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Step 4

    Using a spoon, coat fillets with mixture. Cover dish with plastic wrap and place into refrigerator for 30 to 40 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Right before placing the fish onto the grill, oil grill grates. This can be done by using a large pair of tongs, folded paper towels, and a high smoke point oil like grapeseed or avocado oils.
  6. Step 6

    Place fish onto grill, skin side down, and cook for 5 minutes. Discard any extra marinade. Carefully, turn fish and cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. It is sometimes easier to use 2 heat-resistant spatulas to turn the fish. One to get underneath and the other to assist with turning.
  7. Step 7

    When the flesh of the fish no longer appears shiny, flakes easily and reaches an internal temperature of 145 F, it is done. Carefully remove from grill, plate and serve.
