  • 1½ pounds fresh or frozen fish steaks or fillets (such as tuna, sea bass, swordfish, or salmon), cut 1 inch thick
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled and quartered
  • ½ onion, quartered
  • ½ red sweet pepper, quartered and seeded
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1½ cups fresh arugula (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry. Place fish in a shallow dish. Set aside. For marinade, in a blender or food processor combine the garlic, onion, sweet pepper, wine, oil, ketchup, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Cover and blend or process until finely chopped; stir in the cilantro.
  2. Transfer half of the marinade to a small bowl; cover and chill until ready to serve. Spoon remaining marinade over fish; turn fish to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning fish occasionally.
  3. Drain fish, discarding marinade. Grill fish on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, gently turning once halfway through grilling time. If desired, serve fish over arugula. Top with reserved pepper mixture.
