Grilled Fish Recipes for Summer

Grilled fish recipes are a hot summer item, particularly when BBQs, camping and picnics go into full swing. Your grill can be over a campfire or over a gas flame, and it all tastes great. Stick with lighter recipes for grilling fish during the summer months, though, so you don't end up spending hours over a hot stove making sauce.

Light Lemon Pepper Grilled Salmon Recipe
Ingredients You Will Need:
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
½ tsp garlic, finely minced
Vegetable oil spray
2 large salmon fillets (at least 1 inch thick)

Preheat grill for high heat.

Stir together lemon juice, butter, pepper, parsley and garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.

Take a large piece of aluminum foil, and fold it in half. Fold all four sides up to make a tray for the fillets. Spray inside of foil tray with oil.

Place salmon fillets in foil tray, and brush each fillet side with lemon mixture. Pour remaining lemon mixture over fillets. Place foil tray on hot grill. Use a cookie sheet to transfer from counter to grill if needed.

Cover, grill and cook fillets for five minutes. Remove cover, and use a spatula to flip fillets over. Replace cover, and cook for five more minutes. Salmon needs to cook about 10 minutes for every inch of thickness. Add additional cooking time if needed, but be careful not to overcook the fillets. Overcooked salmon is dry and flavorless. Remove salmon from grill, slice each fillet in half, garnish with a slice of lemon and serve.

¼ tsp salt
2 cut, cleaned, fresh trout (about 1lb each)

In a small bowl, stir together olive oil, chives, rosemary, parsley, sage, pepper and salt. Brush half of the spice mixture evenly over the inside of the fish. Repeat process with second fish. Place fish in sealable plastic bag or covered container, and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours.

Remove fish from refrigerator, and lightly oil skin. Preheat grill to about medium heat, and place fish on rack. Grill fish for five minutes on each side. Use a spatula to remove fish from grill so that they don't fall apart. Place fish on plate and serve.
