How to Make Grilled Fish


How to Make Grilled Fish. Don’t be afraid to throw a couple of fillets
or even a whole fish on the barbie. If you know what you’re doing, it won’t fall
apart. You will need A grill A steel brush A clean
cloth Vegetable oil Spices Mayonnaise A spatula Marinade (optional) A pastry brush (optional)
Cooking spray (optional) and a grill pan (optional). Step 1. Decide between grilling fillets or a whole
fish. If you choose the latter, have it cleaned
and scaled. Step 2. Select your fish. Tuna and swordfish are the easiest to grill
because the flesh is thick and firm. Monkfish, mahimahi, tilefish, and salmon also
grill well. Stay away from cod and halibut, whose softness
makes them difficult to flip, and fish fillets that are cut thinly, like flounder. Fish larger than three pounds are difficult
to flip on the grill. Step 3. Start with a clean grill by burning off the
stuck-on food of past cookouts. For a charcoal grill, light some coals; with
a gas grill, set it on high and close the lid. After about 20 minutes, let the grill cool. Scrape off the burnt-on bits with a steel
brush and end by wiping down the grill with a clean cloth soaked in vegetable oil. Step 4. Get your grill hot; otherwise, the fish will
stick to it. If you’re using charcoal, don’t start cooking
until the coals have turned ash- gray. With a gas grill, heat it on high for at least
15 minutes, with the lid down. Step 5. If you plan to marinate your fish, do it no
earlier than 30 minutes beforehand: If you let it sit longer than that, a sugary marinade
might make the fish stick to the grates and a vinegar-based one could pickle it. Let fish marinate in the refrigerator. Never baste your fish with the liquid in which
it was marinated or you could transfer bacteria to it. Step 6. If you’re seasoning the fillets, mix together
spices you like in a small bowl and rub them on the fish just before grilling. If you’re cooking a whole fish, stick spices
into diagonal one-quarter inch slits that you make on both sides of the fish, and rub
the entire fish with olive oil or brush it with mayonnaise, which will help keep it from
sticking to the grill. Step 7. Just before you put on the fish, grease the
grate with cooking spray or by brushing it with vegetable oil. Be prepared: The grill may flare up as you
rub oil on the grate. Once you put the fish on the grill, don’t
move it around the grill, or you’ll risk it sticking to the grate. Step 8. Put fillets on the grill flesh-side down,
leaving a bit of space around each. Cook about 10 minutes total for each inch
of thickness, turning it over with a spatula about halfway through. A whole fish also needs to be flipped halfway
through cooking. One that’s under two pounds will take about
eight minutes total to grill; a three-pounder takes 15 to 18 minutes. Invest in a special grill pan with small holes;
fish have a tendency to fall through grates. Step 9. Check for doneness by poking it with the tip
of a fork or knife; if the flesh flakes and its color has turned opaque, it’s done. Let it rest for five minutes before serving. Did you know Japan consumes 30 percent of
the world’s fresh fish.

  1. First, use a fish basket. It allows you to turn fish without it sticking to the grill and falling apart. Second, don't clean your grill before you use it, clean it *after* you use it, while it's still hot. If you must clean it before you put the fish on, wait several minutes or so until the remnants of your last grilling session burn off completely and stop stinking before you put on the fish. Finally, don't ever use cooking spray on an open flame!!!
