Coley’s Tips for Grilling Like a Pro

  • Start with a very clean grill to help prevent the fish from sticking.
  • Choose a fish that is meaty and thick like Australis Barramundi.
  • Pat the fish very dry and brush it thoroughly with oil (olive oil or vegetable oil) on both sides.
  • Keep a close eye on the fish. When it turns opaque around the edges, it’s ready to flip.
  • Don’t poke and prod. Just let it do its thing!
  • If you’re grilling fish with the skin-on, lay the skin side down first.
