I like grilling seafood because they are quick to cook and not to mention, also takes less time to marinate. Seafood generally taste great by itself. So, a simple marinate should suffice. Once done, I usually prefer to serve them with some salsa. For this recipe, I have paired them with a cool Tropical Fruits Salsa.
