Euclid Fish Company’s Grilling Tips:

Simply grill fish 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Skewered fish or shellfish, like shrimp or lobster are great on the grill.

 

Shellfish:

Grilled clams, mussels and oysters are a great start to any cookout. All you need is the grill and some lemon butter for dipping. Place the clams or mussels directly on the grill, close the lid and in a few minutes the mollusks will open and will have cooked in their own natural juices.

You’ll want to slurp them up… BUT BE CAREFUL THE SHELLS ARE HOT!
