Success
Use a grill basket when grilling delicate fish, which can break apart easily. Be sure to spray the basket with cooking spray or lightly brush it with vegetable oil before adding the fish.
Success
For best results, marinate fish only up to 2 hours. If the fish marinates longer, it will begin to toughen.
