Mojo Criollo Pompano

1 cup olive oil, 1/3 cup Florida orange juice, 1/3 cup Florida key lime juice, 8 cloves garlic, minced, 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1 tablespoon ground coriander, 1/2 habanero chile, seeded and minced, 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, 1 Florida pompano

Mix all ingredients together in a blender. Eviscerate the pompano; score its sides with a sharp knife in the thickest areas to precipitate the absorption of the mojo and to help cook the fish evenly. Brush the prepared pompano with the mojo 20 minutes before grilling. Grill fish about 8 minutes on each side, basting one or twice on each side while grilling.

Serves 4
