|Grilled Salmon Steak|
Cooking fish on a grill can be easy with the proper equipment. Grilling fresh fish usually enhances flavor without the need for expensive or hard to find ingredients.
Whole fish, steaks, or fillets can be brushed with butter or oil before grilling to keep them from sticking to the grill.
Freshly caught fish are often grilled with the skin on, which helps keep the meat from breaking apart and drying out.
Previously frozen fish portions may have the skin removed. Skin-off portions usually have little or no dark meat, which can have a strong fishy taste.
A popular method of grilling fish is to place portions on a grill sheet, pan, or basket. Either of these accessories yield good results by exposing fish to smoke and heat while providing a stable grilling surface.
Grilling containers are also useful for cooking vegetables or other dishes. Their slotted designs allow excess moisture to escape.
When grilling fish, some cooks top fish with herbs, fruit slices, sauces, or other toppings. Toppings are used to add moisture, flavoring, color, and other elements.
For peak flavor, fish and other seafood is usually served as quickly as possible after grilling.
