    I like to grill it, as easy as 1, 2, 3, hold my beer...

    Slice fillets into 1 1/2 inch thick pieces and arrange in a turning basket.
    While the grill is heating up, melt 1/2 stick of butter in a bowl in microwave.
    Add in 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 2 tsp lemon pepper, and 3 tsp of parsley flakes.
    Stir together, and add in 1/2 a beer (this helps keep the butter drippings from flaming up on the grill).

    Reduce heat on grill to 'low' and place basket.
    Use as a basting sauce for the fillets to help the fillet edges from drying out and charring.
    Close grill lid.
    Turn and baste the fillets every 5 minutes for 20-25 minutes.
    The outside will be golden brown when done.
    Remove from turning basket with a spatula and serve.
    Fillets can be kept warm under an aluminum foil tent.

    I use this recipe to grill mackerel too and use left over pieces to make fish salad...

    You don't need to get fancy with cobia. It is a great tasting fish and you can simple slice 1\2 in. pieces off the fillet, roll it in corn meal and fry it, salt and pepper to taste. One of the names for cobia is lemonfish, and it does have a slight lemon taste. Of course you can broil it in the oven with butter and light seasoning. Enjoy.
