Grilled Fish Recipe

Post by Captain Cook »

RustyRav09 requested a recipe for grilled fish on a baby Q
Here is my simple recipe

You need a teflon grill sheet - available at woolies for 10 bucks you will find them with the rest of the BBQ gear.
Don't cut it to size - makes it easy to handle.
Prep the fish by lightly brushing with a bit of melted butter and season with a bit of salt - I like the natural flavours of the fish so I don't add anything else when grilling like this.
Preheat the Q on high for 10 minutes while you are preparing the fish.
Place the teflon sheet on the Q, leave some overhanging - Only cover a maximum of 3/4 of the grill with the teflon sheet otherwise you can smother the fire and the heat needs to circulate around the fish.
Place the fish on the teflon grill sheet flesh side down and grill for 2 minutes with the lid down, flip the fish over and grill skin side for a further 2 1/2 minutes, check for donness by pulling a couple of flakes apart - it should be just turning opaque in the middle - do not overcook.
You should have beautiful grill marks on the fish and the skin should be crispy. The fish should be extremely moist and juicy and have the natural fish flavours.
