Tips for Grilling Seafood

Want to add some flavor to your fish? Cooking seafood on the grill gives your seafood a great smokey taste. Prepare the grill for cooking seafood by applying vegetable oil to the grates with a grill brush and your fish. A great way to cook delicate fish is in a grilling basket. Alternatively, wrap and cook delicate fish in aluminum foil until done. Brush a small amount of olive or vegetable oil on the outside of the seafood. Adjust the grill for a medium (300-350° F) heat. Place the seafood on the grill and cook. Cook seafood for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, 5 to 7 minutes on the first side, 3 to 5 minutes on the other side. Delicate fish such as snapper, salmon and sea bass should be turned carefully so they don't stick and fall apart. If cooking directly on the grids, use two metal spatulas, top and bottom, when flipping the fish. Seafood is done when internal temperature is at least 145° F and it flakes with a fork. Another great option for cooking seafood, as well as other food, is using a grilling plank. The wood plank adds a unique flavor to your food to give it a great taste.
