Fishy Question

We had dinner the other evening at a local seafood restaurant, and the grilled grouper was excellent. It tasted as good as my best efforts, and the look was fannnnnnnntastic. Grill marks couldn't have been prettier if they'd been painted on, the flesh pale white between the marks.[p]So.... help, please. I can keep the fish, steaks or filets, tender and moist - what troubles me is getting good grill marks, as well as being able to turn the fish without tearing it to pieces.[p]TIA

    Have you ever seen those extra wide spatulas for just fish, might try that. Later Jason

    Brush the fish with melted butter and oil the grid just before the fish goes on and again when you flip. I have seen the restaurant chef in San Diego's The Fish Market use two large spatulas to flip, one to lift the fish then the other rests on top of the filet as everything is turned over and the fish slid off and back on to the grill to cook the other side.
    I hope this helps,
