6. So how long do I leave my fish onrepparttar grill? A good rule of thumb is about 10 minutes for every inch of thickness. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but your recipe should note this if that isrepparttar 137294 case. Fish is done when its color turns opaque and just begins to flake with a fork. A little underdone is better than overdone as your fish will continue to cook after taken offrepparttar 137295 grill.

7. Marinades are great to add additional flavor to fish. Marinade your fish for only 30-60 minutes before grilling. Because of their lack of connective tissue, fish absorbs marinades easily. Do not over marinade orrepparttar 137296 flavors may overpowerrepparttar 137297 flavor of your fish.

8. Do I need to baste my fish? When grilling, baste lean fish periodically with your favorite basting liquid or olive oil. This will help keeprepparttar 137298 fish from drying out. Basting is not really necessary with fattier fish but you may wish to do so for more flavor.

9. I love to grill with skewers. Lightly marinated shrimp are great! Use fairly large shrimp for this. Chunks of fish also work well as long as they are firm fleshed. Alternate with chunks of your favorite vegetables for great kebobs. If using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes. This will keep them from burning up on your grill.

10. One last tip. Tired of your hands smelling like a tacklebox long after youíve washed your hands? Try rubbing some lemon juice on your hands. Then wash with soap and water. This will also help get rid of onion or garlic odors.

Grilling seafood isnít really very hard if you follow these tips. With a little practice you will be grilling perfect seafood in no time. Your stomach will thank you for it, as well as all your friends and family. So slap a nice fillet of salmon onrepparttar 137299 grill today.
