The Lobster

Canadian Lobster
The live Canadian lobster is perfect to impress your friends! Our sustainable caught lobsters thrive in colder temperatures, in which their shells become denser. This affects its physical characteristics, producing meat that is uniquely sweet and tender.

Flip lobster over and using a spoon, spread lobster with the garlic-parsley butter; continue grilling shell-side down until lobster meat is tender, this should take 3-5 more minutes.

The Shellfish

Canadian Scallops
Raw Canadian Scallops have a light nutty taste with a touch of sweetness. While grilling scallops may sound crazy, it’s actually the perfect way to cook them! Quick, high heat is ideal for a food that you want to be certain not to overcook, and a light, quick kiss of char and smoke brings these gorgeous shellfish to life. They are amazing on skewers with some fresh vegetables!

How to grill: Grill the scallops! Brush the grill with oil first, then lay the skewered scallops on the grill. On a nice, hot grill, they will take 2-3 minutes per side. If you’re feeling unsure, you can always slice one open to check for doneness.

Other Fish

Norwegian Salmon Fillet (skinless in foil)
This grilled salmon in foil needs to be the star of your next BBQ! Our fresh salmon fillet is an explosion of flavours in the mouth. Those who are not fans of “fishy” tasting seafood usually like the taste of salmon.
Order Now
How to grill: Preheat grill to around 200°C. Once fully heated, place salmon directly over the flame on your grill and let cook for 8-15 minutes. We recommend checking your salmon after 8 minutes. The goal is to have your salmon be lighter in color, firmer, and flakey! Not done? Seal her back up and keep cooking.
Fresh Tuna Steaks
Yellowfin tuna is one of world’s most well-known fish species. Its mild, meaty flavour and firm texture makes it the perfect choice to impress your friends with top-quality BBQ Tuna Steaks. 
Order Now
How to grill: Grilling tuna is all about high heat, you want to get a good sear on both sides, then take the fish off the grill as quickly as possible to avoid overcooking the center. Preheat a grill to the highest heat possible. Pat the tuna dry and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Grill 30 to 60 seconds per side, until cooked on the outside but still raw on the inside.
Atlantic Halibut Fillet (skin on) 
If steaks and burgers seem a little been there, done that, step out of your culinary comfort zone by grilling something your guests won’t necessarily expect like wild-caught halibut! Halibut is a delicious white-fleshed fish with a firm, meaty texture, which makes it a great alternative to grilling meat or chicken. The tender white meat has a somewhat sweet taste and therefore doesn’t need much seasoning. 
Order Now
How to grill: Since halibut can dry out easily, the grilling time is pretty short compared to chicken or meat, meaning no breaks for a glass of wine or beer inside because overcooking will ruin everything you worked so hard for. Generally, an inch-thick halibut steak or fillet will grill to perfection in about 10 minutes over medium-high heat while thinner cuts can cook in as little time as 5-7 minutes.
Atlantic Cod Fillet (skin on) 
You can find cod fillets in every seafood lover’s kitchen. Grilling is a simple way to prepare cod, and it brings out its delicate flavour. Cod fillet is that kind of fish everyone likes and for that reason perfect to include in your BBQ platter. 
Order Now
How to grill: Preheat the grill to medium heat. Rub the cod fillet with oil. Season them with salt and pepper. Cook on the grill for 4 minutes on each side, turn the fillets only once with a spatula. The fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork, but still looks translucent in the center. 
Fresh Turbot Fillet (skin on)
The turbot fillet is famous for its delicate flavours, firm meat and large flakes. It is very easy to grill them on the skin. 
Order Now
How to grill: Turn your grill on to high and allow it to heat for 5 to 10 minutes until the grill is very hot. Carry the fish out and open the lid to the grill, it should be very hot. Use a brush to scrap the grill grate clean and then lower the temperature to low. Place the fish on the grill, close the lid, and leave the fish to cook with the lid closed, without turning for 7 to 10 minutes.
