Oily fish like bluefish, mackerel, sardines, trout and salmon have the perfect makeup for an intense marinade like this dill and lemon marinade. The fatty composition of oily fish allow them to maintain integrity...

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    Zest of one lemon

    1 teaspoon lemon juice

    ½ teaspoon kosher salt

    2 tablespoons Greek yogurt

    1 pound fresh bluefish fillets or steaks (see Chef Tips)
