Prepare the EGG to cook direct at 400°. In a small bowl combine the rub ingredients and set aside. In another small bowl whisk together the mayo and hot sauce. Brush the fish liberally and all over with the mayo mixture. Season the fish on all sides with the spicy rub. Grill the fish directly on the cooking grid turning as needed until done. This will take 7-10 minutes depending on the thickness of your fish. Transfer the fish to a platter. Remove the slaw from the refrigerator and toss well. Transfer to a clean bowl and serve with the fish.
