Get Grilling: Surfin' Seafood

May 26, 2011

Grilled Shrimp

Surf and turf, the quintessential combination of grilled goodness, is a fun way to enjoy your favorite cuts of meat and seafood without over-commiting. Instead of the traditional steak-and-lobster pairing, why not mix things up? Scallops, shrimp and salmon all grill especially well! Not feeling up to a complicated dual-protein dinner? Seafood makes for a light, fresh meal on a hot summer's day.
