I'm kind of surprised grilling fish in foil isn't more popular, especially if you're just learning how to grill fish.
Not only is it the easiest and cleanest way to grill fish going but you can create so many different flavors depending on your imagination and the ingredients you add to the foil packets.
I've created three options for this style of grilling including the Lemon & Dill grilled sole recipe shown above.
If you're a little more adventurous try the recipe with Peach, Lime and Honey shown below...
...or the third grilling recipe I've shown below using a Zesty Salsa instead.
I've used fillets of Sole for these recipes but other softer white fish like Halibut, Tilapia or Walleye are also perfectly suited to grilling in foil.Home › Grilled Fish Recipes › Grilling Fish in Foil
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 8 minutes
Direct Heat: 600F
What you'll need:
Regardless of which of these recipes you choose, always spray the shiny side of the aluminum foil with cooking spray before placing the fish on it.
If making the Lemon-Dill variety place the lemon slices and dill on top of the first piece of fish and cover with a second piece.
Sprinkle with salt & pepper and put a couple pats of butter on top.
To make the grilled sole (or other fish) with Peaches, Lime and Honey, dice a peach and grate the rind of a lime and place on the first piece of fish.
Cover with a second fillet, sprinkle with salt & pepper and drizzle with liquid honey.
The Salsa stuffed sole is the easiest, place the first fillet on the aluminum foil, spoon salsa over top and place the second piece over that.
Sprinkle with a little salt & pepper.
When you've added the ingredients to the foil, bring both long sides of the packet together and begin folding it over on itself to make a tight, leak-proof seal.
Wrap the ends up tight and the foil packet is ready for the grill.
Prepare the grill for direct cooking and preheat to 600F.
When this temperature is reached place the foil packets of fish on the grill and close the lid.
After 3 1/2 - 4 minutes flip each packet over and close the lid.
After another 3 minutes remove the foil packets from the BBQ to a serving platter.
Carefully open each packet and remove the fish to a plate. Cover with any remaining ingredients and juices from the packet.
