These grilled seafood and shellfish recipes are so quick and easy to do, most can be prepared in under 30 minutes.
Seafood (or shellfish) can be divided into two different types:-
Molluscs have soft bodies and live inside a shell and some molluscs (known as bivalves) have two shells (mussels, scallops clams etc). The only exception to this rule is cuttlefish, octopus and squid which again are molluscs but they don't have an exterior shell. These molluscs are known as cephalopods.
Crustaceans have hard external skeletons that are segmented to allow movement and all are sea fish with the exception of crayfish.
Generally speaking, seafood is all about hot and fast cooking, some can be cooked over the coals but more often than not a fire plate or plancha is the best piece of equipment to use.
