How to Prepare Fish and Remove the Bones

Make sure you prepare the fish the proper way:

  • Clean them as well as you can.
  • You can chop off the fins and tail or leave them on, but don't eat them.
  • Watch out for bones. You should remove all the bones before you cook the fish. If you decide to leave the bone in, do not eat the bone.

Bacon, Lemons, and Green Onions

You do not need to eat all of these items. These are simply suggestions to flavor the fish while it's cooking. You don't have to add all of these ingredients, either: You can use any other type of ingredient that you desire to add flavor.

If you want to eat the bacon, cook it before you add it to the fish.

Wrapping the Fish

This is an optional task. You can wrap each individual fish with its ingredients. This can help the flavor, but you don't have to do it this way.

Do not put aluminum foil directly on the barbecue. This can cause the foil to catch fire and possibly burn your fish.

Wrapped and ready to grill!
