How to Grill Fish

As much as you may think your grill is just for juicy red meats, burgers, and maybe sometimes veggies, it can also be used to grill up a scrumptious fish dinner. You may be intimidated to use their grill to cook such a delicate food, but it can be done. We have rounded up some tips of the best tips on how to use your grill to cook your fish to perfection!

1. Choosing Fish
What fish you decide to grill is –obviously – the most important part, one, because of what fish you’re in the mood for and, two, because of how well it will do on a grill. Heartier fish such as salmon, halibut, Mahi-mahi and others are most likely the easiest types for flipping, but you can do any type of fish.

2. Prepping the Fish
Get rid of the extra moisture by wrapping the fish in paper towels and placing it on a large plate. Leave in the fridge until the grill is ready.

3. Getting the Grill Ready
This might be the most important tip – the grill MUST be clean! Preheat the grill for 10-15 minutes on high and cover the grate with aluminum foil. The strong heat will cause any residue to break down and dissolve. Remove the aluminum and simply brush away any residue left with a good grill brush. After cleaning, oil the grates with vegetable or olive oil. Dip a cloth or paper towels into either type of oil and smear across the grates.

4. Season the Fish
There is no need to marinate the fish before grilling it because it will cause it to far apart under the high heat. Simply season with salt, pepper and oil so that it won’t stick to the grill.

5. Grill!
After seasoning it, place the fish skin side down on the grate at a diagonal. Reduce the heat to medium, and just let it cook until it can lift easily off the grate. Using a wide spatula with a thin, tapered edge will make it easier to flip because it will slide easily under the fish and is big enough to support an entire filet. Or use two spatulas at the same time to flip the fish. You’ll know your fish is done with the meat is firm to the touch and flakes easily with a fork. Enjoy!
