Camping and RVing isn’t all about burgers and hotdogs. You can cook some mouth watering fish on the grill and your family and guests will rave about your skills.
One of the biggest concerns when grilling fish is the potential for it to stick and break apart. You can avoid this by starting with a very clean grill, well-dried fish, and medium-high heat.
Wrap the fish in paper towels or a hand towel to absorb any extra moisture. Keep it in the fridge until you are ready to cook it.
Turn the heat on ahead of time. Cover the grates loosely with tin foil as it heats. This will help to burn off any left over particles on the grates and they can be easily removed with a good grill brush. Watch for grill bristles, though, they can be left behind and cause injury if swallowed. Oil the grill with some folded paper towels. This should have you ready to cook.
Add the seasonings you prefer and put the fish skin side down on the grill. It makes for pretty grill marks on the fish and also makes it easier to flip when the time is right. Test the fish gently on the edge to make sure it lifts easily. If it still seems to be sticking give it a few more minutes and try again. Check it every 30 seconds or so. Using two spatulas is a great assist when flipping. Be gentle but firm.
We hope these tips help you in making a memorable grilled fish for your next get-together around the campsite. You can read more at The Right Way to Cook Fish on the Grill.
