Olive oil does triple duty in your recipes. It helps reduce disease-causing 
cholesterol and provides antioxidant protection. Plus, it adds great flavor 
at the same time.

10 Tips for Good Fish Grilling

Whether your grill
is fueled by
electricity, gas,
or good old
charcoal briquettes,
these 10 tips will
increase your
fish-grilling prowess.


1. Clean the grill rack of any encrusted food.

2. Moisten a cloth with vegetable oil, and rub it on the grill rack just before heating the grill.

3. Preheat the rack 4 to 5 inches above the coals or heating element 15 minutes before cooking.

4. Dry the fish fillets with paper towels, then lightly rub or spray with oil before placing them on the grill.

5. In general, grill fish fillets over a medium-hot fire so they will brown while cooking through. Remember fillets marinated in or brushed with soy sauce, honey, or other sweet ingredients tend to burn. Cook them over a lower flame, or brown them, then move the fillets to a cooler section to finish cooking.

6. Grill fillets flesh side down first (with the exception of snapper fillets, which curl when turned) to create a golden-brown surface for serving.

7. To avoid sticking and tearing, brown and lightly crust the fillets before moving them.

8. If you like a smoky flavor, cover the grill while cooking so the smoke penetrates the fillets.

9. Cooking time is determined by the thickness of the fillet at its thickest point and the intensity of the fire. A 1/2-inch to 2/4-inch thick fillet will be done in 5 to 8 minutes.

10. If a fillet is translucent when cut into at its thickest part, it's not done. If it is opaque, it is done.
