Meanwhile, prepare the fish
  • In a small bowl, whisk the lemon zest and lemon juice with the Dijon, oregano and marjoram. Gradually whisk in the 1/2 cup of olive oil until incorporated. Season the ladolemono with salt and pepper.

  • Light a grill and oil the grate. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until the fish are white throughout, about 15 minutes total. Transfer the fish to plates. Serve with the ladolemono and skordalia.

Make Ahead

The skordalia and ladolemono can be refrigerated overnight.
