Barbecuing guide for seafood

  • Seafood is grilled uncovered.
  • Oil the grill before placing seafood on it.
  • Seafood cooking time should be brief or else it will become too dry.
  • Shrimps: 1 minute per side
  • Scallops: as soon as they start to become opaque
  • For maximum flavour, marinate seafood for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Try cooking seafood in a papillote or on a cedar plank.
  • Try these simple, but exquisite starters:
