Heat the grill on high until it is smoking. Put a bit of oil on the grill and add the fish. Cook uncovered. Depending on the thickness of the fillet the cooking time will vary, for about 1" fillet its about 3 minutes per side. You can bast it a couple of times with the oil and spices from the bottom of the bowl just make sure to blow out any flames that can start from the bottom of the bbq.
