BBQ Seafood Like A Native Islander

Tired of hamburgers? Try seafood on the grill!

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Seafood is great on the grill, and a welcome change from heavier meats. If the weather is hot, or you're tired of hamburgers, seafood is the perfect new option. Grilled seafood with a light salad makes a great summer dinner.

Halibut with Lemon

Serving seafood with lemon is nothing new, but when you grill it, the flavors become new.

8 halibut fillets
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary - crushed

1. Stir the lemon juice, chicken broth, and cornstarch in a skillet. Bring to a boil and stir for one minute.

2. Turn the heat off and stir in the remaining ingredients. Keep the sauce warm to serve over the grilled fish.

3. To cook the fish, rub the grilling rack with oil to prevent sticking. Grill the fish fillets for about six minutes on each side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Asian Salmon Steaks

For seafood with an Asian twist, try this easy recipe.

4 salmon steaks

1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Combine all the marinade ingredients and add the salmon. Allow to marinate for twenty minutes.

2. Grill the salmon until it flakes easily with a fork. Brush the meat with the sauce while it cooks. It should take about five minutes per side.

Spicy Shrimp

For seafood with a bit of bite, try these spicy shrimp on the grill. They take a bit more work, but I'm sure you'll agree it's worth it.

2 1/2 pounds fresh shrimp
6 tablespoons light rum
2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar

1. Peel and clean the shrimp, but leave the tails on.

2. Combine four tablespoons of the rum with the lemon or lime juice, oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt.

3. Stir in the shrimp and allow to marinate for thirty minutes.
In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining rum, cider vinegar, and brown sugar.

4. Thread the shrimp on skewers and grill over medium heat for three minutes on each side. Brush with the brown sugar glaze while cooking.

All three of these recipes will work for beginners, as long you don't overcook them. It doesn't take a genius to grill seafood, but it will certainly be a nice twist on the typical barbecue menu.
