How to Grill Fish from the Wild Alaska Seafood Group:

  • Be sure your grill is clean and hot before you start cooking.
  • Brush the fish with oil, lightly, before cooking to prevent sticking.
  • Start to grill fish with the skin side up. This lets the natural fat beneath the skin to be drawn into the filet and it'll be easier to turn.
  • Only turn the fish once. Use a two prong kitchen fork to lift a fillet, then slide a metal spatula underneath to turn.
  • Cook the fish for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Fish is done when the thickest portion of meat turns from translucent to opaque throughout.

If using a plank method:

  • Soak the plank in water for at least 30 minutes, up to 2 hours.
  • Pat them dry, then lightly oil one side of the plank where the fish will be placed.
  • Preheat one side of the grill to medium high with no heat on the other, indirect side.
  • Place the planked seafood on the indirect side with no heat, then close lid and turn heat down to medium.

Better food starts with better soil. As President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, "The nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself." He couldn't be more right. That's why we choose to manage our pastures in a way that protects, enhances, and builds soil. Because if we lose the soil, we lose our ability to grow food.
