DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare grill: Place sheet of aluminum foil on grill grates, tucking in ends to secure. Pre-heat on high for 15 minutes with lid closed. This gets the grill grates super hot!
  • Remove foil and wipe down grates with oil until black and glossy, about 10 times, not just 2 or 3! This is super important for keeping fish from sticking.
  • Rub fish with a little oil and season to taste on both sides.
  • Place skin side down and grill 3-5 minutes depending on thickness and degree of doneness you prefer. I like med. rare so I do 3 minutes for about 1 1/2 inch fillets.
  • Flip when fish releases from grate on it's own. If it sticks, it is not ready to flip (or you didn't grease the grill enough).
  • Cook another 3-5 minutes on other side or until fish reads 125 degrees, depending on your preference.
