Fish is an excellent food to barbecue. The intense heat and quick cooking sear the outside while keeping the flesh moist and full of flavor inside, especially those oily fish cooked whole in their skins are ideal. The skins will release their oils into the flesh while providing a protection against the heat, so the firm flesh does not easily fall apart.
Some of the very best fish to cook on a barbecue whole are like jewfish, kingfish, sea bream, mullet, salmon, sardines and trout. Barramundi are more expensive, but can also be cooked in this way. For easy handling and turning, use a special fish rack to barbecue fish..
