Grilled Fish: Top Recipes

This is a guest post written by Chris, professional cooker, author & blogger at Grill FAQ.

Sausages, kebabs and chicken legs on the grill have a serious competitor – fish and seafood delicacies, which are perfectly fried on the grill.

Grilled fish under marinade Ingredients:

  • 4 carcasses of fish,
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil,
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon,
  • salt – spices,
  • herbs (marjoram),
  • vegetables for side dishes.

Cooking: Under running water, clean fish from scales (with a blunt knife side). Make a horizontal cut on the fish stomach with a knife blade. Gut the carcasses and rinse under water (heads can be cut, but this is not necessary).

Make 4-5 diagonal cuts on each side of the fish with a sharp knife. Put the carcasses in flat non-metallic dishes.

  • Grilled fish marinade To make the marinade, mix the marjoram, olive oil, juice and lemon pepper, garlic, salt.
  • Fill the fish cooked with the marinade and leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Cook the fish on the grill (you can read more on GrillFAQ) for about 15-20 minutes, periodically watering the marinade.

Serve with vegetables, sprinkled with chopped herbs.
