Here's a great marinade recipe for grilling either white or red flesh fish

Sauce Ingredients & Directions:
Cilantro – 2 tablespoons fresh, minced
Cornstarch – 1 tablespoon
Garlic – 2 minced clove
Jalapeno pepper – 2 teaspoons minced (increase/decrease depending on how much you like heat)
Lime juice – 3 tablespoons
Pineapple (chunked) – 1 big can (20-24 oz)
Seasoning – salt & pepper, sometimes sugar, lemon pepper, chili powder (all your preference) Water – 2 tablespoons

Combine pineapple chunks, half the pineapple juice, lime juice, and garlic in a pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce & simmer uncovered for 4 minutes. Combine cold water and cornstarch & return to a boil. Stir constantly until you have a thick, well blended sauce. Remove from heat & stir in cilantro, and any other seasonings you want to add.

Grilled Fish: Two pounds of fish. This works well for either white or red flesh fish. Grill the fish on aluminum foil with a little lime juice &/or salt/pepper. Directions for grilling the fish will vary based on type of fish, thickness, etc. I have used this on fresh-caught fish (panfish, walleye, perch) and store-bought fish (tuna, mahi-mahi).

What’s your flavor?
Serve grilled fish, with warmed sauce on the side. It doesn’t take much of the sauce to hide the flavor of the fish, so go light if you are a big fan of fish. For those that don’t like the fish flavor as much, this is a great recipe to hide the taste.

Longtime angler, relatively new to kayaking.  Love the combination of the two.  The past year  (2013) has brought the two greatest fishing days of my life.  First, on Father's Day, our young son & I went fishing - he caught a 20" channel catfish, a couple of largemouth bass over 12", and about 15 bluegills.  Then in September, my Dad & I took a guided trip at Gavin's Point Dam on the Missouri River.  We caught 10 different species that day & shared a special time together on the water.  Looking forward to more of these days in 2014.

Diverse work experience - college & high school football coach, a high school math teacher, a software developer, and a technology/operations director at a pharmacy.

Enjoy family time with wife, two kids, and large extended family.  If not working or with family, I like to fish, hunt upland birds, read, cook, follow sports, make artificial lures/flies/jigs, and watch NCIS and reruns of the Spanish Fly.  Have a lot of interests, but am not very interesting.

Currently serving as secretary for the Heartland Chapter of Heroes On The Water.
