I think we can all agree, most things taste better wrapped in bacon — that goes for grilled seafood recipes, too.
Here’s a tip when you’re wrapping fish and game in bacon: try cooking the bacon halfway first. Then wrap it around the fish or meat. Especially with things that cook quickly, you end up with crispy, not limp bacon.

Grilled seafood recipe tip: for best results, spray some pan spray on the grill grates before lighting. Then, set the fish on skin side down on the grates, and don’t flip it until you’re sure it’s ready.
Rule #1 when cooking lobster – cook and eat them at their freshest. Once a lobster dies, the meat degenerates and bacteria grows quickly.
Aside from enjoying the meat, you can also use the legs and shells to make lobster stock. Just toss them into a stock pot with cold water, carrots, celery and onion and bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 minutes, strain the stock through a colander, then simmer for 30 more minutes to concentrate the flavors.
With just 8 ingredients (including the bass fillets), this tasty recipe is easy to pull together. Make sure to plan 30-60 to marinate the fish; actual cook time is just about 3-4 minutes per side on the grill.
What I love about this grilled seafood recipe is its versatility. Try it with any firm fish, like swordfish, yellowtail, tuna, shark or wahoo. Plus, you can experiment with the stuffing ingredients to create your own signature dish.

Here’s a different way to enjoy your salmon on the grill. If you’re like a lot of people, you probably throw your salmon collars away. If you do – you’re missing out! There’s a lot of flavor from the bones and the rich meat in that section. So save those salmon collars and try them on the grill.
