Cooking white fish on grill

When cooking a more delicate white fish on the grill do more people use a fish basket, or grill on aluminum foil?

I've switched to using a fish basket for all fish on the grill. Works really well.

I'm nor sure how orange roughy compares to white fish, but I have good luck cooking orange roughy on aluminum foil. It's just that flipping it isn't the easiest. I need a fillet sized spatula.

I use buttered foil w/ a few holes poke in for flare ups (flavor) for delicate fish.

I use my cast-iron fry pan on the grill. It protects the delicate flesh and skin from the intense heat radiation while allowing the fish to pick up the smoke from the burning coals and wood. It also makes turning the fish easier as well. The cast iron cleans up easily (very well seasoned).
