Seafood that is great for Grilling

One of the best things about seafood is that it cooks quickly!  When using the grill for seafood, try to grill as much of your meal as possible to help utilize all the fire has to offer.

Great Veggies for the Grill
Vegetables like asparagus and corn are perfect for the grill as well as just about every mushroom,. Brussels Sprouts and tomatoes may seem a little bit out side the box, but they are equally well suited for the grill. Peaches are a superb fruit for grilling and we will have a great deal on them in the produce department.

Wheatsville offers a variety of fish and seafood that are fantastic for grilling...

Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
Take advantage of seasonal favorites like salmon. The fishing season starts in the Copper River making these salmon the most cherished of all the Sockeye. When the state closes the Copper River fishing season, the rest of Alaska is opened up. Alaska is a state who takes the passion of sustainable fishing more seriously than just about any other place on the planet. Their waters and fish supply are both closely monitored and exceedingly clean and fresh.

Grill Tips To grill salmon, we recommend using a plank which adds subtle wood flavors. It's also a good way to keep skinless fish intact. Black Drum and Cod are also great choices for plank grilling. Black drum offers many options on the grill, including stuffed and rolled or just marinated and grilled.

Shellfish are always a great option for the grill. Shrimp skewers are are great for a parties as are Mussels and Clams. Just drop them on and wait for them to open.

Spice It Up
Our Cajun Catfish from Quality Seafood is marinated and excellent for grilling. Despite the name, it is mild in heat, but does pack fantastic flavor.

If you like it VERY hot, I suggest you add a little hot sauce like Tobasco or Yellow Bird, or, make your own. I have recently become a big fan of the Chipotle Powder in Bulk Herbs mixed with paprika, some chili, garlic and onion powder and salt. That is also a pretty great rub for wings!
