Preheat grill to medium-high

Chef Tip: Create a hot and medium hot side of the grill. Put on the hot side until you get a good sear then move to medium heat to cook through.

Thread fish onto skewers

Chef Tip: Be sure to soak the skewers to they don't catch fire on the grill

Grill to medium-rare, approximately 1 to 3 minutes each side
