Grilling Fish

July 31, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Think beyond steak and chicken the next time you fire up the barbecue and try grilling fish. Grilling fish can seem intimidating but is actually very easy to do if you follow a few simple rules...Try starting with a firmer (steak-like) fish such as tuna or swordfish and then work your way up to a flakier variety such as mahi mahi or red snapper. Always brush both sides with oil and make sure your grill is very hot!

Whatever fish you choose to cook... serve it simply with either a quick relish or a squeeze of lemon juice and some fresh herbs on top.
