I am making dinner for my inlaws this weekend and wanted to do something a little nicer so I am going to grill fish. There are so many choices! What do you typically grill?

My favorites are salmon, catfish, steelhead & mahi mahi.  Fillets are fleshy, and have few bones that are large and easily removed.  Use any good spice mix, but even simple lemon pepper is good.  Here is a good site on how to grill fish...  http://bbq.about.com/od/fishandseafood/a/aa060698.htm

Salmon is our favorite for the grill, marinated in a teriaki type of sauce. I often try to get it skin-on so it holds together better.

We just grilled salmon a few days ago and it turned out fantastic.

I highly recommend a grill basket for seafood. Makes life a lot easier. :)  It's not required, but nice.
