So the smell of BBQ is already presenting itself from peoples gardens and I've already had one this year.

But I never really cook my catch that often on the BBQ so I'm curious about everyone else's favourite techniques and dishes are?

I know one of the best ways is cooking fish whole and I love it, but your guests are not normally very encouraged when dump a whole fish in front of them and tell them to dig in!

I cook salmon fillets a lot on the bbq, but that's from the supermarket.

I also on occasion take a portable bbq to the beach and cook mackerel on it and eat it with a roll or bread, but looking for something a bit more refined!

Bass fillet, lightly seasoned. Mackerel fillets, with a bit of smoke. Dogfish chunks marinaded in lemon juice, pepper kebab style. Just let your mind go.

Gilthead, Black Bream, Bass, Mackerel, Herring, Pilchards, Sardines all done whole over a medium heat. I was also very pleasantly surprised by the flavour of a large (~3lb) Mullet done "spatchcock" style and brushed with garlic infused olive oil in a taverna in Greece. A clamp type grill helps to keep the fish whole when turning during cooking. Feeling hungry now...

I also think mackerel is best to bbq as oily and wood chips or sawdust and herbs smoke help the flavour. A bbq with a lid helps almost smoke them. I often cook foil package with more delicate fish but you dont get the bbq flavour. Fish wracks or baskets are useful for whole fish, stuff a bass with enough herbs, lemon etc inside to keep moist and you can manage and turn and serve it easily!

Caught a fairly decent sized Bass and a decent sized mullet (4/5lbs) a few years back down in Devon. Had both on the BBQ simply in foil with some butter, and although both were tasty I definately prefered the mullet. Mullet not that common round here though!

My dream this summer is to catch a decent haul of whats been mentioned and get it on the barbie for mid afternoon. (preferably bass)

I'm hoping it becomes a reality on a regular basis.

I agree with that : mullet is a very tasty fish ... depending on where it has been caught ! i really wouldn't want to eat a harbour caught mullet, fed on heavy oil and other garbage from ships :yucky:

Just my humble one but Bream is a far better eating fish than Bass...

Gert, would I be right in assuming you caught those off the Dutch coast? I've had all mine when I lived on the south coast but if you are catching them in the Netherlands then there may be (very faint) hope they will one day appear off our north east coast...
