Ingredients for the roasted garlic mayo

  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 7 oz Hellmann's mayo


  1. Roast the garlic at 340°f for 15 minutes and then let it cool. Mash it well and mix it with the mayo in a bowl.

  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt

Grilling & Serving

  1. Boil the wild rice (brown rice is great too) according to the directions and the amount you are preparing.
  2. Melt butter in a frying pan on medium high. Drizzle a little more olive oil on the top of the wolffish. Grill for 8-10 min per side, turning only once, until cooked but not dry with an internal temperature of 125°F. (We know this seems long, but it cooks differently than other fish)
  3. Serve the fish on top of the rice and add the mayo and vinaigrette on top of the fish.
