Grilled Ono recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Have you tried Ono? I hadn’t even heard of it until recently. This is an excellent fish. I am already planning what I will make with it next time. The texture was perfect, not at all mushy.

The flavor was very mild. Ono is considered a perfect fish for grilling, so we did just that. I grilled this along with some huge pattypans for dinner. They were great together.

You can also saute Onon with a Balsamic Butter Sauce. So tasty!

    I used your recipe to good effect. Ono is also good with Dijon and lemon with salt. Ono in Hawaiian means ‘good’. Ono is sort for Ono Ono. Which you might guess means ‘very good.’. It’s a delicacy in Hawaii.4 stars

    We no longer have a grill. But I used this recipe to pan sear the Ono (we’re in Hawai’i) in a cast iron skillet. My husband asked me to remember this recipe. Enough with the shoyu and honey!5 stars

    Your grilled ono recipe was perfect! I added a side of baby bella mushrooms, onions, and garlic sauteed in coconut amino acids which could also be put on the fish.5 stars
