I really do not like the taste of fish, but if you catch it, you got to eat it...
This is really good with a strong oily fish like a Macinaw. I was given this recipe from a fishing quide at Priest Lake, Idaho. This is the best way to impress your fishing buddies.
You can also use almost any large fish like trout and steelhead.

Ingredients

BAR-B-QUED SALMON/STEELHEAD

1
whole fish (macinaw, salmon or steelhead)
1/2 c
honey
pinch
dry dill or fresh dill (chopped)
lemon juice, fresh, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Filet the fish. Leave the skin on. You will end up with two sides..If you are getting the fish at the butcher, have them cut it for you.
2
Preheat bar-b-que. Set temperature to 350 degrees.
Spray grate with a non stick spray..
3
Mix the honey and dill together in a container. You may add more or less dill to taste. You may need more or less honey depending on the size of fish.
4
Lay fish, skin side down on grate. Brush on honey mixture to cover flesh. Close lid. Maintain temperature at 350 degrees.
5
Brush on honey mixture 2 or 3 times, as it cooks..Sometimes I squeeze a little lemon juice on, too.
6
Check the fish often..Do not turn. It is done when the juices turn a white color and meat flakes.
7
Remove to a plater and serve.
8
The only time that the skin stuck to the grate, was when I was unable to control the heat and it was to hot.
