Step 4 Make sure the grill is clean and oil the grates. Place the fish skin-side down on the grill. Grill for 7-10 minutes (closing the grill while it cooks) until the skin releases easily from the grill grates and the fish is flaky. Note: You can flip the fish after about 6 minutes if you prefer, but do so carefully since the flesh side breaks easily. Cook for 2 minutes on the flesh side, being careful not to break the fish filets. Serve with fresh lemon.
