SEAFOOD GRILLING MADE EASY

Whole fish

This nose-to-fin showstopper only seems complicated.

Swordfish “thai pork chop style”

Its firm and meaty texture makes this fish as grunt-inducing as a good steak. Goes great with beer too.

Enough with the burgers and dogs. This year, the grill is your oyster—and soft-shell crab, and shrimp, and octopus. The American Heart Association recom mends 3½ ounces of fish twice a week, especially the fatty kind. Men average only an ounce or so. Don’t be that guy if you want to cut your risk of cardio vascular disease and colorectal cancer and generally enjoy life longer. So take your least eaten protein and throw it on your favorite cooking device. Grill these meals and harness the power of the sea.
