Fish on the grill

A very good article on one of my favorite grill items, Fish! I left the link at the bottom of the page.

 

Fish on the grill
Cook fish in your backyard. Grill prep starts the process.

BY JANE SCHREIER JONES – CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Fire up the barbie — but, please, not for an artery-clogging beef steak. Instead, prepare fish on your backyard grill for a tasty and quite healthy meal.

Wow your family and even party guests with main courses chockfull of flavor and flair, such as barbecue salmon, fish tacos, tuna steaks, grilled tilapia and other scene-stealers.

All types of seafood can provide the thrill of the grill, say those-in-the-know. “But firmer fish such as salmon, halibut, trout, walleye, swordfish and tuna are easier to manage on a backyard grill,” points out Aleda Zink, owner of Dayton Fish Co., on North Main Street in Dayton.

“Scallops are fun and easy to grill because they are meatier and don’t fall apart,” points out Executive Chef Michelle Brown of Jag’s Steak and Seafood on West Chester Road in West Chester. “With scallops, the more caramelization the better, so don’t be afraid to use high heat.”

Great backyard seafood dishes start with proper grill prep. “Fish likes to stick to grill grates so make sure you have a clean grill to start, by heating it and using a metal brush to remove particles,” advises Matt Klum, executive chef at Jay’s Seafood Restaurant in Dayton’s Oregon District.

Klum recommends using tongs to rub a hot grill down with paper towel soaked in canola or vegetable oil — but do so cautiously. “Because you’re doing this while the fire’s hot, you’ll get some flare up, but use long tongs,” he says. There’s also a Pam for Grilling spray for the less adventurous.

Keep seafood refrigerated before cooking, of course. Klum says fish does not need to be washed; just dry it off with paper towels before seasoning it and rubbing it with a little bit of olive oil. “Let the seafood sit for a few minutes before putting it on the hot grill,” he says.

“I like to marinate fish in Italian dressing or another product before grilling,” says Zink. “That helps with the sticking and adds flavor.”

How long to grill fish? Zink says the rule of thumb is 10 to 15 minutes for each inch of thickness. “Flip it just once,” she says.

“For flakier fish, such as sea bass or halibut, prepare a foil pocket with the fish, herbs, lemon and olive oil,” says Michelle Brown. “Cook it on the grill, but not on the hottest part of the grill. Keep the lid shut. Ten minutes at 450 t0 500 degrees should do it.”

 

 

 

TERIYAKI SALMON

4 salmon steaks (about 6 oz each), skinned, or 1 to 1.5 lbs fillet, skinned

1¼ cups soy sauce

1/3 cup sake (Japanese rice wine) or mirin (sweet Japanese cooking wine)

6 Tablespoons granulated sugar

3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed

1 Tablespoon minced or grated ginger root

1/3 cup vegetable oil

Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl and stir until the sugar dissolves. To prepare the salmon: quickly rinse under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Divide each steak into 2 pieces by cutting along either side of the central bone and then discarding the bone; alternatively, cut the fillet into 8 equal pieces.

Place the salmon in a shallow glass or ceramic container and pour 1 cup of the marinade over the fish. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning the fish occasionally. Let the salmon come to room temperature before cooking.

Prepare grill. Remove the salmon from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Place the fish on an oiled grill rack. Position the fish 5 to 6 inches from the heat source, turning once and brushing with the reserved marinade several times, until the flesh is just opaque, 3 to 5 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Serve the salmon at once with reserved marinade as dipping sauce. Makes 4 servings.

Though they may be more work than a gas grill, charcoal grills impart an amazing smoky flavor to meats and veggies. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your charcoal grill.

 

* To add flavor to barbecued foods, place dried herbs on the hot coals. Some of our favorites are savory, rosemary, and basil.

 

* If the coals become too hot or flare up, squirt them with water from a mister or bulb baster.

 

* Store charcoal briquettes in airtight plastic bags – they absorb moisture very easily and won’t be as easy to light if exposed to air.

If you plan on grilling fish, be sure to purchase steaks that are at least one inch-thick. Fish dries out very quickly on the grill, so the thicker the better. The skin should be left on fillets while grilling and removed after they are cooked.

If you’re grilling a steak on a closed barbecue, here’s a neat trick to impress your friends. Open a can of beer and place it on the hottest part of the grill. It will boil and keep the meat moist, while adding flavor too.

Spraying your grill with a bit of vegetable oil before you start grilling will make cleaning even easier, and your grill even hotter (which will put those cool “grill marks” on your meat and vegetables). For the easiest clean-up, coat the grill with vegetable oil or canola oil before starting the fire, then wipe it with a wet rag shortly after you are through. Never spray the oil on the grill after the fire has started-it may cause a flare-up.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Pork Chop w/ Roasted Red Potatoes and Blue Lake Cut Green Beans

 
One day I’m going to find that hidden camera, you know the one everyone has in their house that shows other people when your away from a phone so they can call to aggravate you because you just stepped away from it! It never fails, I can be sitting there for hours with a phone next to me and it never rings. Then I get up to do something and just like clock work R-I-N-G! it happened about three different times today. The only explanation is there’s a hidden camera somewhere, I’m going to find it one day! Another hot and humid day here again but they say it’s going to get back to more normal temps by the weekend but rain of course. For dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Pork Chop w/ Roasted Red Potatoes, Blue Lake Cut Green Beans, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread.

 
I had purchased a package of two big, beautiful Pork Loin Chops from Kroger the other day. I seasoned them with McCormick GrinderGrilled Chops 001 Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I grilled them about 7 1/2 minutes per side, to 165 degrees internal temp. I basted them with JB’s Fat Boy Hawg Waush BBQ Sauce. The JB’s Fat Boy Hawg Waush BBQ Sauce, in my opinion is one of the best sauces there is for Pork. The Chops came out moist and mouth watering delicious! Chops, BBQ Sauce, and Grilling. Love it!

 
For side dishes I prepared some Roasted Red Potatoes.I took 3 Red Potatoes, that I quartered and seasoned with Dill, Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder. I spread them out on a baking sheet and baked them on 400 degrees for 27 minutes (fork tender). I also heated up a can of Del Monte Blue Lake Cut Green Beans. A delicious and hearty meal that was just 400 calories. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Hint #1 – Memorial Day weekend has passed but you still need to make sure your outdoor grill is prepared for the rest of your Summer grilling. Clean the grates by placing them in the tub and covering them with very hot water and one cup each ammonia and dishwasher detergent. Cover with old fabric softener sheets and soak overnight. The next day, don your rubber gloves, scrub away, and watch the grease dissolve.

 

 
Hint #2 – Another great way to clean your barbecue grill is with wet newspaper. After cooking, just place it on a warm grill for one hour with the lid closed. You’ll be amazed how easily the grime comes off.
