Seafood Grilling Guide

Some firm-fleshed fish steaks like swordfish, tuna, salmon and halibut can be cooked with Perfect Grill Marks.

To cook filet of salmon, place skin side down on a hot grill for 2 min. at MEDIUM/HIGH. Slip the spatula between the skin and the fish.

Turn onto a well-oiled grill at a 45° angle for 1½ min. at MEDIUM. Rotate the fish 90° and grill 1½ min. on MEDIUM.

Serve with grill marks-up for perfect presentation.

More delicate fish like pickerel, bass, perch, tilapia, or trout are best cooked using one of the following 4 methods:

  1. In a well-oiled fish basket
  2. In a cast-iron pan on the side-burner
  3. On well-oiled grids
  4. On a cedar plank


As a general rule, cook fish ten minutes for each inch of thickness using any of the first three methods. Cooking on a plank requires more time.
