The best way to cook fish easy, hot and fast is by grilling. You can literally get fish off the grill in a matter of minutes, thus making fish the perfect healthy meal. Grilled fish is also great for dinner parties, picnics and even as “pulutan” for drinking sessions with friends. Before dinner you can get the fish soaking in a marinade or otherwise just simply seasoned up the fish with salt and msg. (vetsin) just like what I did with “talakitok” or what they call it here as “zubidi”, and then light up the grill a few minutes before everyone wants to eat.
The hardest part of grilling fish is knowing when it’s done. This is generally the trickiest part of grilling, but I have no worries about that. When fish is cooked the meat will flake easily with a fork and will appear opaque all the way through. If any part of the meat is still glossy and partially translucent then it’s not done yet. When everything is done, a spiced vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice in soy sauce with chili and on the side with chopped tomatoes, onions & cucumber makes everyone appreciate the meal just a little bit more.
It would have been much better if charcoal grilled but we can’t do otherwise as we don’t have any place from the building for grilling. Nonetheless, electric grill would be fine for easy grilling of chicken, meat and most especially fish to cut a little fat from our diet.
