Native to the West Coast, this member of the Trout family is a delicious, protein packed way to add Omega 3 to your diet. Similar to salmon, Steelhead fillets can be sautéed, baked, poached and of course, grilled. Finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon to make the flavours sing!
TRIPLE CROWN SHRIMP
Sweet and juicy, shrimp are versatile enough to become a family favourite. You can grill shrimp with the skin on or off. Skewer them and soak in a marinade of your choice. A simple brushing of olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon is all you need. Grill over direct heat for 5-8 minutes turning halfway through, but be careful not to overcook as the meat will become tough.
Nothing could be simpler or more delicious than a bowlful of mussels paired with fresh baguette. Grill the mussels on your BBQ in a pot with enough liquid to cover half of the mussels. Once all of the mussels are open, they are ready for eating! Once you’re finished with the mussels, soak up all the remaining juices with the baguette to savour every delicious drop.
