BBQ Fish Anyone?

Ok, simple and easy.....
I usually only use Walleye, Pike, or Rainbow Trout/Steelhead and Salmon....because that's really all i keep when i go fishing. (After i fillet my fish, i pack them in tupperware or a zip lock and fill with water to prevent from FB...Sort of like a fishsicle )
I make a basting sauce prior to pulling fish with
2 sticks filtered butter, that had been cooked with a clove of garlic.
After it's filtered pull the garlic, mince and add as well as 2 tblsp. fresh lemon juice and a tsp. lemon zest (or to taste) and put off to side.

Boneless fillets ( i usually do 4, 8-10 oz fillets) still frozen but run under water to get ice off pat dry (still frozen plays a key roll!).
Rub with Old Bay or any other preferred seasoning and add to grill (I use low heat)
Let crust start forming and brush butter sauce on fillets and repeat untill done.

Very easy and simple

BUT, the "key roll" trick is keeping fillets frozen prior to cooking! This allows the fillets to take on more of the grill flavors by staying on longer.


This post is dedicated to no other than "jkath" because that's who asked for it

jkath, with your looks i woulda thought the fish jump into the boat just to get a seat next to ya...


good info bbq. i've been thinking about grilling some fish. i usually just do it in perforated (for the smoke) foil packets. an alaskan pilot friend of mine does his copper river salmon the same way as you, frozen to start, except he adds a splash of worcestershire sauce, and the spice is chef paul prudhommes fish magic.

I used to do the Worcestershire with the butter, but found it would leave a bitter like taste?

Sounds great, but what's a BBQ plate, and what do you cover it with?

Sounds decent. Maybe try adding an alder wood smoke pouch to the party? Might give it just a little extra.
