About Grilled Fish Steak Recipe

The recipes for Grilled Fish Steaks are usually very complex or very simple. I always was a fan of simple recipes where I can taste the flavor of each ingredient, but I also like some complex types because, as a cook, I need to reach the perfect balance of the ingredients used. It isn’t so simple, but with a bit of effort, the meals I am preparing are like a “walk-in Paris”… As my clients say. You only need a grill, fish steak, lemon juice, and butter or margarine. For a better design of the dish, place 20-30 seconds of lemons on the grill, and then place them near the fish steak.

Notes and Tips

  1. Essential Equipment: a grill.
  2. Fish is easy to fix and so good for your health. Fish is available whole, drawn, and pan-dressed, but you’ll find it most often in steaks or fillets (yummy). You can purchase it fresh or frozen, and when you select fresh fish, the scales should be bright with a sheen, the flesh should be firm and elastic, and there should be no odor. Frozen fish should be tightly wrapped and frozen solid; there should be no discoloration and no odor.
  3. As per Cuts of fish, the steaks are the cross-section of a large pan-dressed fish. Steaks are 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. Allow 1/4 to 1/3 pounds per serving.
  4. Fish fillets are the sides of the fish, cut lengthwise. They can be purchased with or without skin. Fillets usually are boneless, however, small bones, called pins, may be present.
