Almost all fish benefits from a flavorful marinade. Some oil, acid, herbs and/or spices are all you need to make a marinade -- save the salt and pepper for just before you add the fish to the grill.

Marinate for about 15 to 20 minutes in the refrigerator -- any longer and you will have ceviche since the acid will cook the fish if left for a long period of time.
