Grilling fish is a fast and easy way to prepare a summertime meal out on the backyard BBQ grill. It takes only minutes yet you have a juicy, flavorful main dish. Cook salmon directly on the gas grill. Fish cooks quickly, so grill fillets over medium-low heat. Rub olive oil on the fish so that it won’t stick to the grill. If you are grilling your own catch, cook fish with the skin on.

Turn only once during the grilling time so that the fish does not break apart. Fillets are ready to flip when the edges get flaky. Grilling time varies depending on the thickness of the fillets. A general rule of thumb for grilling fish is five minutes on each side for every inch of thickness. Cook clams, oysters, and mussels on the hottest part of the grill. You will know shellfish are done grilling when the shell opens. Skewer shrimp or scallops on wooden skewers to barbeque over a hot charcoal grill.

Refrigerate fish while marinating. You should soak in the marinade for at least 30 minutes. Cook fish for half the required time on the barbecue grill. After grilling, finish cooking in the microwave for another minute or two. This insures doneness. Be careful not overcook the fish or it will get dry.
