Guide to Grilling Fish

your ultimate

Nothing says summer like grilling and backyard barbecues. Grilling seafood is not complicated and makes for an easy, healthy and delicious summertime meal.

How Thick Is the Filet?

The best fish filets for grilling directly on the grates are at least an inch thick. Wrap thinner filets in aluminum foil or corn husks to prevent overcooking.

Avoid Overcooking

The best way to tell if a fish is done is to insert a fork at an angle, at the thickest point, and twist gently. The fish will flake easily when it’s done.

Indirect Heat Method

Start with skin-side down for 3-5 minutes before gently flipping with a wide spatula. A great way to get crispy skin and ensure fish is perfectly tender.

Preserve the Moisture

To preserve moisture, coat the fish with oil or thick marinade, which will help seal the moisture inside.
