Grilled fish recipes you can try at home.

When you can't make it to the coast, we bring the coast to you with our 10 best grilled fish recipes.

Fish Recipes- Fish is one of the healthiest and most delicious foods you can prepare for yourself. But we admit - grilling fish can be slightly tricky. Just like Chef Gordon Ramsay rightly said, “Cooking fish is so much more difficult than cooking protein meats, because there are no temperatures involved in cooking a stunning sea bass or a scallop.” That's why we're here to help. If you love grilled fish but are apprehensive about tossing it on the grill, we're going to make it easy for you.

Tips and Tricks to Grill The Fish Perfectly

Here are 5 quick tips that will make you an expert in no time! 

How to Grill Fish: 5 Dos and Don'ts

1. Direct heat method is preferred since fish tends to cook quickly. Cook for 4 to 6 minutes on each side over medium to medium‑high heat. 

2. Want to prevent fish from sticking to the grill? Clean properly. Preheat the grill on high heat, and use a grill brush to clean properly. Also, always coat fish with oil to prevent sticking.

3. Remember: Fish is perfectly done when the colour turns from translucent to opaque with crispy skin. It should slide right off the grates. If not: leave it skin-side down for another minute or two.

4. For quality presentation, grill the first side of the fish a little longer than the second. It gives the fish nice sear marks plus, it prevents the fish from sticking to the grill. It's a win win!

Comments5. Mix up Your Marinade: The basic formula is a combination of oil, acid and aromatics. Experiment with different vinegars and citrus juices and aromatics like garlic, fennel and chillies. Also, since fish is a very delicate meat, marinate it carefully. Instead of marinating the fish before it goes on the grill, you can grill it first then take it off the heat and marinate to deliver flavour without compromising on the texture.
