Default Cooking fish on a George Foreman Grill?

Okay guys and gals, seeing as everyone I have ever talked to, including quite a few of you on this message board, just loves your George Forman Grill, I had to go out and spend $59.00 on one. (Now if I could just get everyone who raved about then to give me a doller, it would be payed for - plus some.) I shopped around, and found an extera large with temperature control. (Seems the temp. control was the only thing anybody ever said "I wish I had".)

Anyway.... the questions: Fish on the grill - how well does the grill cook fish? Is there any fish better then others, like oily fishes vs. non-oily? Are walleye a good fish to cook on there? Thick fillets vs. thin, Low heat vs. high heat? Anything?

I am putting myself back on the Atkin's Diet, and it seems this grill would be my best cooking tool... and fish would rank right up there as a "healthy food".

Thanks for your input!

I'll marinate in either italian dressing, or a lawreys marinade...doesn't take too long on the Forman, I'll spray the grill 1st with Pam, as fish likes to stick a bit.

I Perfer perch or small eyes, as I have the little one...

I dip the walleye or perch in Lemon juice and place on the grill that has been sprayed with cooking butter, I then sprinkle Old Bey seafood spices on the fish I usally cook for eight minutes. I don't have one with adjustable temperature.

So obviously... you can cook fish on the George Foreman grill, and it sounds like they turn out good! So far, I have heard about perch and walleye, anybody do trout or salmon? Keep the cooking tips coming.

Wrap the fish in foil and add seasoning like you do for your outdoor grill. The fish won't stick and it stays moist. Clean-up is turning off the grill and throwing away the foil.

The only fish I've ever done on the Foreman is salmon. It works great. With the adjustable heat, I set it between minimum and medium and cook for something like 9 minutes. Will still go back to grilling over charcoal when the weather warms up though.

I agree with the salmon. I cook salmon on the George Forman and in 8-9 mins you have 2 small filets cooked. It's the best way to cook salmon.

I think foil would have a tendency to scratch and ruin the non-stick surface of the grill... wouldn't it?

Wrap the salmon in foil cook it in the Geo. Foreman grill for 8 min. The throw the fish away and eat the foil: Only way to eat salmon is a fish boil or smoked.

Wow RHLSNOOPY, that really has a lot to do with my question... thanks! (for nothing)

My George Foreman Grill would short out in boiling water, and I could never get the smokey flavor out of the plastic.

See... my relpy is just as good as yours.
