Why Seafood on the BBQ?

Seafood on the BBQ is a game-changer. The smoky flavour adds a whole new dimension to your favourite fish and shellfish. Plus, it's quick and easy to cook, making it perfect for busy summer nights when you want a tasty meal without the fuss.

Tips & Tricks for Cooking Seafood On The BBQ

  • Preheat the Grill: Ensure your BBQ is hot before adding seafood for even cooking.
  • Oil the Grill Grates: Prevent sticking by brushing grates with oil.
  • Marinate Wisely: Use light marinades to enhance flavour without overpowering the seafood.
  • Control the Heat: Use medium-high heat to avoid overcooking delicate seafood.
  • Use Skewers: Keep smaller pieces like shrimp and scallops together for easier handling.
  • Cook with the Skin On: Retain moisture and flavour in fish fillets by leaving the skin on.
  • Don’t Overcook: Seafood cooks quickly; aim for an internal temperature of 145°F.
  • Use a Fish Basket: Prevent flaking fish from falling apart.
  • Add Citrus: Enhance the flavour with a squeeze of lemon or lime after grilling.
  • Rest Before Serving: Allow seafood to rest for a few minutes to let juices redistribute.

BBQ Cooking Tips: From Rockfish

When it comes to cooking seafood on the BBQ, there are a few key tips and tricks to remember. 

  1. One of the best ways to add texture and flavour to your fish is by sprinkling it with breadcrumbs and herbs before grilling. This not only creates a delicious crust but also gives your seafood that perfect charred finish.
  2. For scallops, try cooking them in their shell. This allows you to add flavoured butter and liquors, which can take your dish to the next level. Not only do they taste amazing, but they also look impressive on the plate.
