Grilled Orange-and-Bourbon Salmon Recipe

Grilled Orange-and-Bourbon Salmon

To make a complete meal, serve the salmon over a bed of brown rice, with green beans and a salad on the side. Save some orange-and-bourbon marinade and drizzle over the salmon and rice to impart complementing flavors of bourbon and citrus throughout.

Grilled Lemon-Bay Shrimp Recipe

Grilled Lemon-Bay Shrimp Recipe

The simplicity of this dish belies its incredible taste. Bay leaves and lemon wedges infuse peppered shrimp with woodsy and citrus flavors. If your grocery store doesn’t carry fresh bay leaves, substitute good-quality dried bay leaves (such as Spice Island) soaked overnight in water. Leave the tails on the shrimp for a prettier presentation.

Grilled Striped Bass with Chunky Mango-Ginger Sauce Recipe

Grilled Striped Bass with Chunky Mango-Ginger Sauce

Tasty, easy, and beautiful–with just the right combination of savory and sweet–this sauce also makes a great salsa for turkey, chicken, or other mild fish. To make the sauce even chunkier, reduce the final cooking time to 10 minutes.

Healthy Grilled Tuna over Lemon-Mint Barley Salad Recipe

Grilled Tuna over Lemon-Mint Barley Salad Recipe

The flavors of the vinaigrette are mirrored in the marinade, so there’s a double dose of the refreshing combination of lemon and mint. The salad can be made an hour ahead. You can halve it for two people.

Scallops with Roasted Pepper-Butter Sauce

Scallops with Roasted Pepper-Butter Sauce

Scallops are usually classified into two groups: bay scallops and sea scallops. The larger sea scallops are best for grilling because, like shrimp, they have a meatier texture and can be easily skewered. They cook fast, so keep a close eye on them.

Shrimp on Sugarcane with Rum Glaze

Shrimp on Sugarcane with Rum Glaze

Caribbean-influenced shrimp, skewered with sugarcane and basted with a dark rum glaze, rely on high heat to caramelize the glaze and infuse the shrimp from the inside out with the cane’s mild sweetness.

Grilled Salmon and Brown Butter Couscous

Flavorful grilled salmon is served alongside fluffy couscous and fresh summer squash. For a simple substitution, use thick slices of yellow squash and zucchini in place of baby squash.

For the Grilled Summer Squash: Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Combine 2 cups baby zucchini, halved lengthwise, and 2 cups baby yellow squash, quartered lengthwise, in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper; toss well. Place vegetables on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 5 minutes on each side or until lightly charred and tender.

Salmon Burgers Recipe

Salmon Burgers

For best results, choose salmon from the meaty center of the fish and avoid portions cut from the tail section (where the body starts to taper). Tail-end flesh contains more connective tissue than center-cut fillets. Use black sesame seed buns, if available.

Sotong Bakar (Barbecue Squid)

Sotong Bakar (Barbecue Squid)

The spice rub and dipping sauce are hot, hot, hot (but quite good). Serve with slices of cucumber and fresh cilantro leaves for a cooling effect in the mouth. Thai chiles are very spicy, so you can use fewer (and increase the mild bell pepper) to tame the heat.

Striped Bass with Peach Salsa

Chimichurri Halibut Tacos

Make these fish tacos a sustainable choice by opting for wild-caught Alaskan halibut. If not available, choose another U.S. or Canadian wild-caught Pacific halibut, or substitute striped bass or U.S. line-caught cod.

Grilled King Salmon with Tomato-Peach Salsa Recipe

Grilled King Salmon with Tomato-Peach Salsa

Use a peach that’s just ripe so it’s juicy but still holds its shape. King (also called chinook) salmon is the best quality and works well in this dish, though sockeye works.

Halibut with Grilled Tomato and Olive Relish

Mild halibut pairs nicely with this tangy relish, starring tasty late-summer tomatoes. Any other meaty, firm fish, such as wild salmon or striped bass, will also work.

Smoked Oysters with Olive Relish

If your experience with smoked oysters is limited to the oily, strong-flavored bivalves sold canned, you're in for a revelation. The brininess of the olive- and caper-laced relish echoes the fresh, oceany notes of the oysters. Keep as much of the oysters' juices as possible in the shells while shucking and grilling.

Spanish flavors inspire this simple but intense summery braise. Saffron gives the tomato broth a nutty complexity, while the spice and heat of chorizo liven up the clams.

Chile Crabs

This iconic dish is a favorite in Singapore, but traditionally, the crabs are fried in the chile mixture. Here we offer a healthier grilled version.

Grilled Maine Lobsters

Grilled Maine Lobsters

If you don't have the grill capacity to cook all the lobsters at once, the relatively brief cooking time makes it easy to do them in batches. The lobsters will be bright red with a few blackened spots when done cooking. To check doneness, break a lobster open where the tail and body meet–the meat should be opaque and white.

Ocean Trout with Coleslaw and Crispy Smoked Bacon

Skin-on fish holds together better on the grill—plus the skin gets deliciously crisp and lightly charred. The recipe traditionally uses Australian bacon, called bacon rashers or back bacon. Because that's less available in the States, we recommend Canadian bacon.

Grilled Halibut with Peach and Pepper Salsa

A fresh fruit salsa is a lovely accompaniment to grilled fish in the summer; try it also with striped bass or arctic char. Here, the season's juiciest peaches pair with fiery habanero pepper for a sweet-spicy flavor. Leave the peaches unpeeled for more color and texture.
