We admit that grilling fish can be a little intimidating. The fish can stick to the grill, fall apart, or end up dry and tasteless. But grilling fish can also be great: It doesn’t take long, and the end result has lots of smoky flavor. So we’ve put together five recipes that will help you conquer your fish fears, from simple salmon glazed with maple and mustard, to halibut wrapped in corn husks and served with corn salsa. They all use types of fish that are on the sturdy side—nothing delicate that you’ll have to worry about mangling here—and they all include tips to help you achieve seafood success.
