Simple Fish on the Grill 

Posted By: Gary Makely


  • 2-3 lbs. Fish Filets (skin on)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • Sauce (recipe below)


  • 1 cup Ketchup
  • 1 Cup Hot Sauce (Durkee's extra hot is my favorite)
  • 1/2 Cup Vinegar (White for less vinegar taste, Apple Cider for more)
  • 1/2 cup water


If using a gas grill, preheat the grill. Brush the grill with oil to minimized sticking.

Place the filets on the grill skin side down, and brush the filets with sauce. After 2-5 minutes (depending on the thickness of the filets) turn the filets and brush with sauce again. Wait 2-3 minutes, turn and sauce the filets one more time, salt and pepper to taste and cook until done.
