The majority of times when Americans use their grill, we often grill products deriving from beef, poultry, and pork. Even vegetables like okra, corn, carrots, and sweet potatoes make tantalizing grilling options. This blog post will focus on seafood with an in-depth look at fish. It is one of the healthier meat options available to cook and is an excellent alternative. With that said, let’s look further into the five different types of fish to grill.
Grilled swordfish is a tasty option because it has a natural buttery taste that complements nicely with a grilled taste. It is one of the meatier options available and pairs well with marinades and tartar sauce. Although it is more expensive than other types of fish, swordfish is worth the cost. However, different types of fish tend to fall apart while grilling, but swordfish lives up to its name.
We all know canned tuna is a staple canned good in many pantries across the country. But, tuna is also served in filet portions as well. Like swordfish, tuna remains firm while grilled and retains those beloved grilled marks. Be careful while cooking it because it can overcook pretty quickly.
Salmon also remains firm while grilling. Salmon is a healthy fish; when grilled, it keeps its natural and unique flavor. You can also use a variety of seasonings and spices. Salmon has a nice bright color, and it’s best to keep the skin on while cooking it because the skin helps the salmon remain firm while grilling.
Although it is lean, it is another fish with a firm texture. Red snapper is one of the heartier options available. Red snapper also has a distinct sweet taste that pairs nicely with other side dishes. Before grilling your snapper, it would be wise to soak it in olive oil, so it doesn’t stick to your grill or lose its moisture.
Mahi-mahi is naturally sweet and tastes amazing when grilled. It also tends to hold together when being grilled. It can stick to your grill like many other types, so it would be wise to use good techniques and not overcook your fish. Mahi-mahi also tastes great when served in fish tacos as well.
