"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...." — Curt Pond

This meal was great for a warm summer night. My fiance and I had a neighbor over for dinner and we all really enjoyed it! My fish rack for the BBQ wasn't big enough, so I ended up making a big foil pouch. I cooked it on one side for 10 minutes and then 8 on the second side. When we split the pouch open the bacon was cooked but not enough, so we threw it on the grill for a minute or two then chopped it up and sprinkled it over the cooked fish. (FYI - 1 pound of snapper / rock fish is about 5 fillets) Delicious. We served it with the Fresh Tomato Salad recipe, (also found on allrecipes.com) which was a perfect pairing. YUM! We'll definately make again!
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 dish and will whip it up again for company next time.
This is one of my more requested recipes with my family. So quick, so easy, so YUMMY!
My family and I love this recipe and have passed it on to friends. We will definitely make this again and again. I am glad you shared this recipe.
This one is diff. a keeper! The bacon flavor gives it that extra special touch. Will most certainly make this again.
I used 6 cod fillets and it was delicious! We had a surf and turf dinner with friends and this was excellent! This recipe is a keeper!
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 basket and put directly on the grill. Bacon was inedible. Not the best recipe to try. Red Snapper was delicious though.
