A charcoal grill is such a
centerpiece of sunny cookouts that it's a pity so many fear
using it for fish. Here's an easy, foolproof way to grill fish
without burning: Wrap the fish in foil before grilling. Whole
bass or flounder or fluke, fillets of sole or catfish, and
salmon or tuna steaks can all be grilled in foil packets.
|1. Preheat grill
according to manufacturer's instructions. In a small bowl,
combine olive oil, onion, and herbs.
2. Spread out a piece of
heavy-duty aluminum foil large enough to form an envelope
around the fish. Pour half of the oil and herb marinade on the
foil then lay the fish on top. Pour the remaining marinade on
top of the fish. Fold sides and ends of the foil into a secure
3. Place on the grill, cover,
and cook about 10 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
NOTE: The fish would be
delicious served with steamed rice and with bell peppers —
red, green, and yellow — sliced, marinated in herbed oil,
and also grilled in packets of foil.
