Have you ever wondered about which other way you can cook fish other than steaming and frying? Well wonder no more. Another interesting and delicious way to prepare fish is by grilling it. Nothing tastes as good as a fish that comes straight off the grill. Here are a few tips that should help you on how to grill fish:
Choose the right fish
Before you do anything else you must first choose the fish that you want to grill. That is, whether fish fillet or just regular fish with the bone. Some fish will cook easier than others, while other fishes break apart easily when they are finished cooking. So to avoid this it is best not to use fishes that are delicate.
Pre heat grill
- Light the grill and turn it up to the highest heating point.
- Make marinade sauce
- Depending on what flavor marinade sauce you want the fish to have, you should combine the desired ingredients that gives the desired flavor in a bowl. This marinade sauce will be used throughout the grilling process.
Prepare the fish for grilling
If the fish needs to be cleaned, please do so before applying any seasoning to it. In order to have a great tasting grilled fish, it is best to add powdered seasoning both inside and out before putting it on the grill. You can also dip the fish in the marinade sauces before or after applying the powdered seasoning. Depending on the type of fish, like the meatier ones will be required to be marinated at least 20 minutes before grilling.
Before putting the fish on the grill, lightly put some oil on the grill to prevent the fish from sticking to it. Place the seasoned fish on the preheated grill to cook for about 8-10 minutes. Be sure to watch it constantly as fish cooks very quickly and easily. The fish should only be flipped once.
Remove grilled fish
One way to know if the fish is properly grilled is if it appears opaque throughout. If it flakes when touched with a fork, this is an indicator that the fish is over cooked. Once it seems opaque, remove the fish from the grill and let it cool for a while before serving. Grilled fish can be served with any side dish or just eaten alone.
Here are a few tips and warnings that you should consider when planning to grill fish.
