Q. What’s the best way to prevent fish from sticking to the grates?

A. There are a few ways to cook fish on the grill: One of my favorite ways is to use a fish basket, a tool you can buy at any grill store, home-improvement store or even at Walmart. I just spray the basket with a nonstick spray, add the seasoned fish, place the basket over heat on the grill and let the fish cook on one side before flipping it over to finish. When done, all you do is open the basket and drop the fish on the plate. Other options: Rub the grates with a good cooking oil or nonstick spray, then cook the fish, or put foil over the grates and cook the fish on the foil. If we use foil, we like to fold it up and add juices (lemon, etc.) to keep the fish light and moist. It’s always fun to try new and different things—have fun with it.
