Grilled Mahi Mahi

They are one of the fastest growing fish in the ocean, growing as fast as an inch a week. That means they grow from minnow to fish taco faster than 95% of the creatures in the sea, but that's not an excuse to slack on grilling them properly! The keys to grilled mahi mahi is to get the grill really h...

Blackened Grilled Grouper Recipe

There are a few good blackening spices on the market, but the ingredients are really simple and I like to make my own so I can control the heat. Sometimes I feel like setting things on fire, so I add some more cayenne. Grab a cast iron pan and lets do this.

Shrimp Teriyaki on the Grill

I'm usually a "no shells" guy when it comes to grilled shrimp. I'd prefer to just eat them right off of the stick, all Caveman style and what-not. This shrimp teriyaki marinade contains a lot of sugar though, which tends to caramelize quickly over high heat, so those shells really save the day by p...

Maple Bourbon Salmon on a Cedar Plan

Maple Glazed Salmon

When we attended a bourbon tasting a few weeks ago, and grilling came up in conversation (it usually does with us for some reason), the natural recipe that came to everyone was salmon on the grill. So when a friend suggested we get together and grill some salmon I figured I'd revisit this old grill ...

Red Snapper with Wasabi Avocado Sauce

Grilled Red Snapper with Wasabi Avocado Sauce

In this recipe I grill up some fresh red snapper and top with a tasty wasabi and avocado sauce. Red snapper is a great fish for grilling.  Its firm, mild white flesh can be grilled with the skin on, which keeps it from falling apart when cooking.

Breaded and Grilled Shrimp and Scallops

I'm fortunate enough to live in Florida, so that means we have access to fresh seafood pretty much all year long.  My family especially loves our Gulf shrimp, so I am always looking for a way to switch things up a bit with a new recipe or technique for grilling shrimp.  This is a great technique, ...

Grilled Soy and Ginger Mahi Mahi

I think I could make it.  Yep, I don't really need to leave the Florida Keys, I think I can make it "Old Man and the Sea" style selling a few fish a day and eating the rest.  Especially if I open a roadside stand selling this awesome marinated and grilled Mahi Mahi!  I just spent 3 glorious, yet ...

Grilled Shrimp with Ancho Chili and Cinnamon

Ancho Chili and Cinnamon Shrimp

This one is simple but oh so good.  You can use either shrimp in the shell or peeled, depending on what aspect of the Great Shell Debate you subscribe to.

Spicy Thai Grilled Shrimp

So I have to start this week's recipe with a little rant.  How can it be that a person living in Florida can buy shrimp that was raised on a farm overseas and then shipped here cheaper than shrimp caught about 30 miles away?  No wonder these folks can't make a living shrimping anymore!  So please...

Grilled Shrimp and Scallops With Lime-Ginger Glaze

It's 9PM on Valentine's Day and my wife is sound asleep on the couch.  I'd like to think these shrimp were so good that she decided to call it a day, but it probably had more to do with the glass of wine she enjoyed after the kids went to bed.  Regardless of the reasons for her slumber, there's no...
