    I ran across this wahoo recipe and it is awesome...
    In a blender or food processor mix
    1/2cup melted butter
    1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
    6 cloves fresh garlic (peeled and chopped)
    1/3 cup fresh cilantro ( usually one bunch)
    2 tablespoons of cajun seafood seasoning
    Juice of 1 lemon

    this amount should do 4-6 good filets..
    I put this on some wahoo filets about an hour before putting on the medium hot grill.
    Use nonstick or foil on the grill and brush filets again- each side while cooking..
    use the extra sauce over some fresh pasta or on fresh bread...

    This sounds decent, but I wouldn't put the lemon until a few minutes before grilling. The acid will "cook" the fish and make it dryer and tougher than leaving it till the end.

    I never had a problem with my lemon/lime juices cooking my cerviche to any dryness.
    I never cook my wahoo long enough to dry it out.
    I will try leaving the citrus juices out until the end in the future.The wife does not care for them much anyway.

    Great marinade Bret. I wish I had some wahoo hot off a green egg.

    You are right about the citrus not drying out your ceviche, but I like to start with uncooked fish for grilling.
    This said, I will try the citrus in the marinade and see what the grilled ceviche surface is like, I always thought it was a bit dry, but wahoo is also a bit fatty, so perhaps it holds up to this.
    I love wahoo, and I love ceviche, and I love grilled fish:D
    Let's party:cool:
