Grilling fish can be slightly intimidating because it tends to overcook and stick to the grill. But not anymore! With the help of the following tips and tricks, you will learn how to grill fish at home with special marinades and you will be master the art of grilling this delicious protein in no time!

How to grill fish?

Set the temperature of your grill depending on the type of fish. Filets and steaks require direct and high heat so they cook quickly and don’t stick. An electrical grill such as Optigrill + can ease this process by measuring the thickness of your fish to adjust the temperature accordingly.

Why marinate the fish?

Marinades are flavor boosters. In addition to that, when a marinade includes an acidic component such as lemon juice, it helps tenderizing the meat. Keep in mind that using more or less marinade can affect the density, mass and acidity of your fish meat.

Try one of these delicious marinades for example:

A delicious blend of lemon juice, olive oil, dried dill, chopped cilantro and garlic.
Chinese mixture of chopped onion, soy sauce, water, garlic, brown sugar and black pepper.
Mediterranean combination of olive oil, chopped parsley, coriander, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, cumin and black pepper.
A masala mix of olive oil, coriander, garlic, chilli and lemon juice.

Just blend the marinade ingredients using a blender and leave your fish chunks, filets or whole fish marinated for 10-30 minutes before grilling.
