Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Substitution: Use your favourite buns in place of the kaiser rolls.
  • Tip 2
    Success: Fish generally takes about 10 minutes to grill for each inch of thickness. Add more time if the steaks are thicker, or grill the fish for slightly less time if the pieces are thinner.
