The rotisserie on your grill is ideal for cooking many different foods, fish included. In fact, fish can be cooked efficiently on a rotisserie because you don't have to worry about one side getting overcooked. Also, your fish won't stick to the grill when you cook it rotisserie-style. With a few simple cooking tips and tools, you can prepare a moist piece of fish that's healthy for you.

Select a piece of fish that is at least three-quarter-inch thick. Fillets and steaks are ideal for the rotisserie.

Wash your fish off in cold water and pat it dry with a paper towel.

Brush your fish with olive oil to keep it from drying out during cooking. Put your fish in the rotisserie basket.

Cut a citrus fruit such as lemon, lime or orange in slices. Place slices on top of the fish. Close the rotisserie basket.

Attach rotisserie basket to your grill. Put a drip tray beneath the rotisserie. Close the lid of your grill.

Check your fish often so it doesn't become dried out. Fish is done when it reaches 155 degrees Fahrenheit. Check the temperature of your fish with a meat thermometer when it looks opaque and the meat is easily flaked with a fork.
