Tips for Great BBQ Fish!
When fish cooks on a grill, it loses moisture fast — faster than most meats. And over an open grill, the juice drips straight onto sizzling coals. To preserve moisture, coat the fish with oil, which will seal some of the moisture inside. And follow these steps:
- Designate a cool area on the grill. Pile hot coals on just one side of the grill.
- Start with clean grill grates.
- Use tongs to rub the grate with a cloth or paper towel coated with vegetable oil.
- For firm fleshed fish like salmon, halibut, and tuna steaks: brush the fish with vegetable oil and season with salt.
- Most fish can grill directly on the grate, at high heat.
- Flip as soon as the fish is cooked at least ½ way through.
- For every 1-inch of thickness, expect about 10 minutes of cooking time (over medium-hot coals).
- Wrap thin fillets or delicate fish in corn-husks, banana leaves, grape leaves, or aluminium foil — or place the fish on top of the foil. Place parchment paper between fish and foil to help prevent sticking.
