Marinade for 15 to 30 Min.

I like my seafood medium rare. This way the fish stays nice and moist. Try it, you will like it.

Chef Josef’s Cooking Tip

If you grill any type of meat or vegetable for a party:

Grill your Meat, Vegetable or Fish in advance

Grill vegies on the high temperature until you’ve got your grill markings

Remove from grill and place in pre-heated oven at 375˚ 20 to 30 min before serving.

This way you will avoid over cooking and you have time to spend with your friends.
