No matter what your level of expertise, cooking fish directly on the grill is always a disaster. If you've tried it, you know exactly what I am talking about. The fish sticks, burns and falls through the open grill slots. Not exactly the dinner experience you were looking forward to in the first place.

The best method for cooking any fish on the grill is to lay down a piece of foil before cooking the fish. Make sure the foil is covered with cooking spray then add the fish and other fixings. You'll still get that wonderful smokey flavor, minus the mess. It also ensures even cooking.

Here's a quick recipe to try this weekend. You'll need:

White fish such as halibut, cod or tilapia


Olive oil


Fresh thyme

  • Rinse and pat fish dry
  • Place on a baking sheet
  • Drizzle with olive oil and chopped garlic
  • Add sprigs of thyme to each filet
  • Line grill with tin foil
  • Place each filet on tin foil
  • Grill until cooked through
  • Finish with a squeeze of lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Serve with a fresh green salad.

Moms, how do you cook your fish on the grill and how do you like to serve it?

We have a basket, it's hard to clean, but keeps the fish from falling apart. We just sprinkle with cajun seasoning or seafood magic, drizzle with olive oil, and grill.
