How long should you cook fish on a grill?

If your fish is an inch thick, grill each side for about three to four minutes, keeping in mind the general rule of thumb that allows for 8-10 minutes of grill time per inch of fish.

What temperature should fish be grilled at?

The best fish to grill are salmon and hearty, firm white fish like sea bass, red snapper, grouper, and halibut. If you would like to grill thin, delicate fish, it is best to wrap them in foil instead of using this method.

How do you grill fish on a gas grill?

The fish will sear better and won’t stick to the grate if the grill is heated to a high temperature, which should be around 400°F.
