Surf and Turf - Gulf Coast Style

"This is by far the best way to grill fish for a most remarkable and satisfying taste. Using a square closeable fish basket, place fish filets between layers of bacon and Vidalia onions and grill until done. Trust me, you can not make enough once your friends taste it...."

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Open fish basket, or similar wire cooking basket and line one side with strips of bacon, leaving a 1/2 inch space between slices. Cover the layer of bacon with a layer of onion rings. Place the fish fillets on top of the onion. Cover fish with more onion, then strips of bacon over the onion. Close the basket, and lightly sprinkle with soy sauce.
  3. Place the basket on the hot grill, and cook for 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until the bacon is just cooked through. Remove from grill, and open the basket. Place a similarly sized plate upside down onto the food, and flip the basket and plate over so that the food is on top of the plate. Lift off the basket, and serve.

Footnotes

  • Caution
  • Do not close grill or leave unattended. Grease from the bacon will drip down, and may cause flare-ups.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Didn't like this cooking method at all; either bacon was undercooked or fish was dry. I think it woould be much better baked in a foil pouch as another cook suggested.

The bacon gets crisp with a nice barbeque flavor, the onions soften and caramelize a little, and the fish gets steamed to perfection in the middle with bacon and onion juices! We all loved this...

You know what you get when you combine a grill, a fish basket and 1 pound of bacon? A grease fire. Bacon was burnt on one side and raw on the other. The fish was raw, had to remove fish from ...

This recipe provides an interesting way to prepare fish. I do have a grill basket for fish, but I did not want to use a pound of bacon. Instead, I layered the onion on the fish, sprinkled with...
