Step 1

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

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

Step 6

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.
