    wtf are you talking about, all you have to do is wipe it with a moist paper towel...

    my only regret about my foreman is the size, i should have got a bigger one. They have a new model with a cooking area big enough for a textbook, for 40 bucks. i think i'm going to go buy it.

    They haves ones now where the plates come off and go in the dishwasher. Easy to clean.

    As for cooking fish, I cook frozen flounder, I tend to spray it with pam or something first because fish tends to stick more then meat or chicken. Just throw it on, cover with some pepper and cook for 12 to 15 minutes. Great stuff.

    Just throw the fish on ... I'm not sure how long it takes. It's not hard to tell when it's done though. I don't throw frozen stuff on ... but nothing usually takes more than 12-13 minutes.

    how does it turn out of the foreman? I imagine it would be pretty dry :o I've always just baked fish or used a pan :dunno:

    Fish doesn't cook well on the foreman actually.

    It tends to be more dry and the weight of of the lid of the foreman can cause the fish to fall apart and mush up. It wouldn't be bad for sturdy fish like tuna, swordfish, and maybe salmon... but flakier stuff like flounder, halibit, talapia, roughy, etc... do not turn out well.

    what if you sprayed some pam on a piece of foil, then folded the fish up inside it and put the whole thing in the foreman. keeps your foreman clean AND you can just eat it off the foil and not worry about it falling apart.

    With a sturdy fish steak or nice sized fillet you can use the foreman. But other stuff that is flakier and less sturdy I prefer a pan or grill.

    Get a non-stick pan, throw a bit of butter or pam on the bottom. Drizzle some olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh lemon juice and maybe some rosemary on the fillet and let it sit for 10min.
    Throw on the pan for 3 min each side sticking a spatula under there every minute or so to insure it doesn't stick... Good as fuck.

    Another great white fish recipe I use in the oven or on a grill is:

    Put fish in aluminum foil over a small bed of brown rice not fully cooked, add olive oil, salt and pepper, add lemon juice, add a bay leave and a sprig of rosemary, throw in 6 spears of asparagus, and top it off with a small piece of butter. Close the foil and let it sit on the grill or in the over for 6-8 minutes on high heat.

    Pull it off and you've got an entire meal of tasty rice, seasoned fish, and vege's. Easy to make, easy clean up, and damn healthy.
