"You all met my mother in the MasterChef “Family Reunion” episode. My mom was absolutely thrilled to be served dinner by all three chefs—Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot, and Christina Tosi. She still boasts about it! Something you should know about my mother—other than the fact that she is a better cook than I am—is that she absolutely loves this dish. Growing up, my mom would want nothing more than a 3-kilo fish all to herself for her birthday dinner!
While this technique may be unfamiliar to some of you, believe me, there is something absolutely magical about grilling a fish whole and eating it family style with Grilled Bean Taquitos on the side. Warm some tortillas to eat with this flaky fish, and if you really want to be transported to Mexico, grab yourself a crisp cold beer. You’ll see just how perfect this summer favorite is." - Chef Claudia Sandoval
