    I am wondering how to cook fish on the grill! I have heard something about basting it with butter, and putting lemon pepper or salt and pepper, but can anyone give me a recipe? Also, would you do the same thing for bass? Thanks and have a great day!

    theres lots of good recipes in the diner.

    & on a similar note, do you put tinfoil down on the grill when you grill your fish or do you put it on the grill as so?

    Scott, no foil, and depends on what kind of fish I'm grillin'. Most fillets are easier to handle if you use a fish grilling basket. Mine are shaped like fish, you've probably seen some. Fish STEAKS can normally just be put on "as so".

    I use my smoker/grill. Just put them in the smoker side. No sticking and no flipping.

    I take my fillets and brush some olive oil on both sides and and sprinkle both sides with Phil Robertson's Duck Commander Cajun Spice. I use the "red top" Zesty and my wife likes the original. The Zesty is really not that hot but it has a great flavor.

    Memphis-Catfish-King is right. Wait until they are done before you flip them or they will stick.

    I'm making me hungry for some right now! Grilled catfish and and big ole glass of sweet tea!!! :smile2:

    take ya filets and wash them good, soak them over night in salt water, rinse well!!!!!! Now salt and pepper to taste, cut ya some lemon slices, have coals hot and keep fish up aways so not to burn, take tin foil and make little boats for fish , cut up a big ole yeller onion and sprinkle on top, head for grill, and keep a eye on them usually when lemon slices start wilting or till ya can flake it !!!!! Now Im hungry!!!!:angry:

    I have taken fillets and even whole fish (smaller ones) put them in a good measure of tin foil, with onions, lemon slices Limes and seasoning's and just tossed them in the coals, give it about 5 to 8 minutes depending on the fire's intensity and walla good steaming soft chunks of catfish heaven

    I have done grilled fish while using tin foil with butter and garlic (or whatever suits you). I have also grilled fish in a basket type holder that allows you to flip the fillets. Or you can simply put oil on the grate with low heat to keep the fillets from sticking. From there, I would say that only your imgination can limit you!
