- 4. Prepare barbecue for direct heat.
- If using charcoal briquets, cover firegrate with a single, solid layer of ignited coals; let them burn down to desired heat. Set grill in place and measure heat.
- If using a gas barbecue, turn all burners to high and close lid for 10 minutes. Adjust burners to desired heat. Set grill in place and measure heat.
- When grill is hot (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds), lay fish on barbecue. Turn fish as needed, until opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), about 8 minutes.
- 5. Push foods from skewers and add salt and juice from lemon wedges to taste.
