Tasty fish thats great for the BBQ

When choosing a fish for grilling it’s important to consider how firm or sturdy it is. Delicate fish like sole don’t fare so well on the open flame. They’re more likely to become flakey, break apart or fall through the grates. It’s best to choose a firm, hearty fish, like one of our five favorites below.

1. Swordfish

Swordfish is my favorite type of fish for grilling! It’s a mild-tasting, firm, meaty fish that holds up great on the grill. You’ll find this fish sold as steaks — cook it whole or cut it up and skewer it.

2. Salmon
Whether you cook it as a steak or a fillet, salmon can withstand the heat of the grill, keeping its distinct flavor and staying together. Also consider grilling salmon on cedar planks for an added flavor twist.

3. Tuna
To me tuna is like steak of the seafood world. It’s so versatile! Tuna steak is thick and hearty, with a distinct flavor. I love giving it a good sear and cooking it just to medium rare.

4. Snapper
Snapper is a great mild white fish for grilling. Cook the whole fish or the portioned fillets.

5. Mahi Mahi
Mahi Mahi, also known as dorado or dolphinfish (not to be confused with the dolphin), is a flavorful white fish. It has a firm texture that makes it wonderful for grilling
