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.
