Grilling season is in full swing, and if you have grilled fish ever, you know how tricky it can be to keep the delicate meat in one piece.
We’ve all been there, anxiously watching the grill to make sure your fish doesn’t fall apart, which really takes the fun out of grilling all together. Luckily, we have 5 tips to help prevent your fish from sticking to the grill!
Put lemons on the grill and place fish on top: Not only will this prevent your fish from sticking to the grill, but it will also add lots of flavor.
Clean the grill: Fire the grill up briefly to loosen the particles and to make cleaning easier, scrub the daylights out of it with a sturdy steel wire brush, rub the grates with a little vegetable oil, scrub again, then wipe down with paper towels.
Skin contact: Grilling fish with the skin on helps the fillet stay together, and also helps keep the fish moist.
Heat it right: Don’t put fish on anything less than a blazing hot grill. The super-hot grates will flash-cauterize the fish — anything less will stick.
Don’t. Touch: Walk away. Forget that fish even exists for three minutes.
