BBQ Corvina Poor Boys with

Cajun Mayo

  • This sandwich can be made with any type of firm fleshed fish, such as grouper, snapper or even tilapia. We like the mild and firm flake of corvina best though.
  • A fresh soft crusty french bread works well for this sandwich.
  • This wet rub works well on almost any piece of grilled or broiled fish.


Wet BBQ Rub for Fish

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 pounds fresh corvina, skinned and cut into 6 ounce pieces.

Cajun Mayo

  • 1/4 cup canola mayo
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Spicy Cabbage Slaw- See recipe on the website

  • Mix all ingredients for rub together in a ziplock bag. Add fish and massage rub onto fish through the bag. Marinate for about 45 minutes at room temperature.
  • Mix all ingredients for cajun mayo together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Grill fish on high for about 4 to 5 minutes per side until done.
  • Spread mayo on bread, add fish and top with spicy slaw mix.
  • Serves 4 to 5 people. Enjoy!
