Expert Tips

Grilling fish usually takes about 10 minutes for each inch of thickness. Add more time if the fillets are thicker. If you have two thinner pieces, grill them for slightly less time.

To prevent fish from sticking to the grill, lightly brush the grill rack with vegetable oil.

Two medium peaches, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces, can be used instead of the nectarines.
