Hints for Cooking Fish on the BBQ

Monday, 22 March 2010 12:58:49 am Australia/Brisbane

If cooking individual pieces of fish, eg. Ocean Trout and Atlantic Salmon , always place the fillet "Skin side up" on the hotplate first. It can then be turned once to finish cooking through, but generally for only half the time for the second side.
