Various types of fish tastes savory and melts in the mouth when eaten after going through the roasting process. Even so, grilling or grilling fish is not as easy as grilling meat. Here’s how to grill fish the right way, delicious, and non-sticky.
Fish has a soft texture, so it easily sticks to the grill. You can follow these steps for the perfect grilled fish.
Here’s how to properly grill fish:
1. Prepare tools
You have to prepare some equipment so that the grilled fish can be perfect. These include long-handled tongs, grill brushes, spatulas, thermometers or temperature gauges.
The grill used must also be clean from previous roasting marks. This is to avoid scorch that can stick to the fish you are about to grill.
The best way to clean your grill is when it’s hot. This makes it easier for food debris that sticks to peel off when exposed to water.
2. Use olive oil

Oil also has a big share in the results of grilled fish. Use olive oil so that the grilled fish still turns brown, but doesn’t stick to the grill.
3. Fish selection
Choose fresh fish. If you are a beginner in cooking fish, you should choose fish that has a thicker meat texture to make the grilling process easier.
Salt and oil the fish slowly. Fish do not need to be marinated for too long. You can grill the fish right away after brushing it with oil and salt. Grill the fish longer on the first side.
4. Cook to 145 degrees in the middle
Launching from the Barbecue Bible, the middle of the fish that has thick meat must be cooked in a grill at a temperature of 145 degrees Celsius. The fish should also peel easily when pressed with a fork.
5. Serve with fresh lemon
Fresh lemon slices that are lightly roasted will add freshness to the fish. Fish is ready to eat.
That’s the right way to grill fish, delicious, and non-sticky.
