Cooking Fish on the Grill

The grill is another simple way to cook fish, especially with thicker filets like salmon. You don’t want to try to grill something that is so delicate it will fall into the grill when you try to flip it!

Baking Fish

Baking is another simple way to cook fish since it can be hard to flip over more delicate pieces of fish. Baking gives you great flavor and allows you to add a ton of different seasonings!

Poaching Fish

While not a very well known method of cooking, poaching is a great way to cook something as light and delicate as fish. It’s not a good idea to poach steak, but poaching fish makes a ton of sense!
