The Secret to Grilling Fish Without Having It Fall Apart

grilling-fishWith this simple trick, you’ll be able to grill fish to perfection very time you BBQ.


Heat, Clean, and Season Your Grill


  • Treat your grill like a cast-iron pan—you want it smoking hot, clean, and well seasoned.
  • Heat the grill on high, then scrub the grates with a grill brush to remove ash, debris, and bits of food.
  • Dip a square of folded paper towels in oil, hold it with long-handled tongs, and wipe grates until they’re glossy—this forms a coating between the grates and fish to prevent sticking.


Prepare and Cook the Fish


  • Thick, skin-on fillets and steaks (think salmon, halibut, snapper, and grouper) hold up best.
  • Pat the fish dry and brush both sides with oil.
  • Place skin side down perpendicular to grates.
  • Cook, covered, over direct, medium-high heat until skin is brown and crisp.
  • If the fish doesn’t budge when you try to flip it, keep cooking until it releases.
  • Flip with a sturdy spatula and grill until cooked through.
