Grilled Fish

Grilled Fish

Ingredients:4-6 fish fillets (any white fish works well, such as tilapia, cod, or mahi-mahi)
1/2 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional: your choice of herbs and spices (such as paprika, dill, or thyme)
Step 1: Gill the Fish
Wash the fish fillets under refresh water then drain it using paper towels.
Coat each part of the fish with salt and pepper on both sides.
Step 2: Combine the ingredients for the marinade.
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, the garlic, the lemon juice, and the Parsley.
Before laying the steaks in the marinade, one could sprinkle any extra spices or herbs of choice and then stir.
Step 3: To marinate the fish it has to be prepared in the following ways;
Put the fish fillets in a shallow dish and then distribute the marinade over the fillets.
Ensure the fish is properly covered with the marinade before covering the dish with a plastic foil.
Let it chill for at least 30 minutes or ideally up to 2 hours in the refrigerator to firm up.
Step 4: Set up your grill to make it ready for use.
Place your outdoor cooker on medium-high heat, or approximately 400 degrees Fahrenheit/ 200 degrees Celsius.
To avoid the grates sticking with the food that is being cooked always ensure that the grates are clean and brush them with some oil.
Step 5: Grow the fish and season it and grill it in the traditional manner to allow for maximum absorption of the flavor of the marinade.
Take out the fish from the marinade bowl and leave the liquid to flow off the fish.
Position the fish on the grill skin side down (if skin is present).
After preheating, place the fish on the grill and close the lid and continue to cook the fish over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes depending on the thickness of fish.
Turn over the fish and finish cooking for another 4-6 minutes or until the fillet is completely done.
Step 6: Serve
It is recommended that you take out the fish from the grill and serve as soon as possible.
Serve as desired with a lemon wedge and fresh herbs to garnish.
Tips and Variations:
It is also recommended to make sure the fish is cooked until flaky with a fork.
This way, you can use a meat thermometer and check how hot the fish got inside making sure it is 145°F (63°C).
Marinate or season the fish with a variety of marinades and spices to achieve the tastiest dish.
Prepare it with your preferred accompaniments, which can be rice, vegetables, or a serving of salad.
