Grilled Shrimp

This is a very simple recipe. We are combining shrimp with olive oil, cayenne pepper, salt and chili powder, then grilling them until pink, juicy and ready to eat with the fingers! This is a nice appetizer. Consider serving some kind of creamy dipping sauce with the shrimp to contrast nicely with their spicy flavor – perhaps ranch or a blue cheese dip.

We like to use peeled shrimp with their tails still on, but you can use fully peeled ones if you would rather, either medium or large ones. As for the spices, what we are recommending might sound like a lot to you, so you can reduce the amount of cayenne and/or chili powder if you want, to get the perfect result for your palate. Some people love to throw in plenty of spice and enjoy a super-spicy dish, while others prefer to use less.

Consider stir-frying the shrimp or broiling them, rather than cooking them on the grill, unless the weather is good enough. Also, you might not want to heat up the grill just to make these. They cook just as well on the stove or broiler. You might like to thread them on to skewers so they do not fall through the grill grate, especially if you are using smaller shrimp. You do not want to lose any down there! If you are stir-frying them, consider adding dried red chilies to the pan instead of, or as well as, the chili powder. This recipe is sure to be a hit for anyone who likes bold, vibrant flavors in their seafood. Continue reading

Kabobs are always great during the warmer months, when you are in the mood for something refreshing and not to heavy, and when you have the grill hot already. Add some skewered seafood to the grill and within a few minutes it will be perfectly cooked. We are using shrimp and scallops here. They have a similar cooking time.

Along with the shrimp and scallops we are using bell pepper. The seafood is marinated in a ginger, soy, vinegar and sesame mixture for a while, before threading it on to the skewers. This is sufficient time for the flavors to permeate into the seafood. You can use this time to soak the skewers in water if you are using bamboo ones, so they do not ignite on the grill. Obviously metal ones do not have to be soaked like the bamboo kind do.

This recipe makes 6 small kabobs and they make great appetizers. Serve one to each person if you are also making burgers, steaks or chicken, or serve 2 for a more filling dish. You could even serve 3 or 4 and have these as the main dish. The Asian flavors go perfectly with the scallops and shrimp, and the bell pepper is also really good, adding color and crunch. Some people like to chop up a fresh pineapple and use that too. The peppers should be cut into 1-inch squares. If you want to use pineapple, try to get that in 1-inch cubes too. Continue reading

Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.


Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone?
