More and more people are eating fish these days as they try to reduce the amount of red meat they eat. Fish can be delicate, though, and tricky to cook on the grill. If it isn’t done right they fish can fall apart and fall through the grates right into the fire. To make a successful grilled fish dinner when you’re camping you can try the following things.
Clean – Turn your grill on high ahead of time. Once hot, use your grill brush to scrub off any remnants of previous meals. Your fish could stick to these so they need to be removed. Give it a good scrub to leave your grates clean and smooth.
Oil – lightly oil the grill grates to help keep the surfaces from sticking. Your fish will come up in one piece if they haven’t gotten stuck on the grill.
Patience – You’ll be tempted to turn the fish a few times but you shouldn’t. Let it cook for 5 minutes or so on one side. If you attempt to lift it and it sticks, sometimes you can leave it for another minute or two and it will come up easily. Then flip the fish over. It helps to use two spatulas to lift the fillet; one from each end. This will support the fish as you lift it.
A great fish meal is wonderful for your whole camping family. We hope these tips help you to make it tasty and come off the grill easily. We’re looking forward to seeing you around the campground next year. Make your reservation as soon as you know your camping dates. We can’t wait to see you!
