- ¼cup/120 mL Dijon mustard
- ¼cup/120 mL honey
- 2tablespoons/30 mL olive oil

Step 1Gather ingredients.
Step 2Rinse fish off in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Place into a deep glass baking dish.
Step 3Combine mustard, honey, oil, garlic, thyme, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
Step 4Using a spoon, coat fillets with mixture. Cover dish with plastic wrap and place into refrigerator for 30 to 40 minutes.
Step 5Preheat 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.
Step 6Place 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.
Step 7When 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.
