Fresh BBQ Seafood-Kebab
To celebrate the fish BBQ season, I will be sharing some NEW fish recipes that are suitable for the BBQ and my first recipe will be posted later today, and is a fabulous recipe using fresh SALMON – so look out for my BBQ Salmon Fillets in a Parcel with Prawns, Chilli, Garlic and Lime recipe…….HERE!
Best Fish for the BBQ: The best fish for barbecuing are those with oily flesh such as mackerel, sardines and herrings. Apart from the fact that the flesh does not often break up, there is also the delicious effect that smoke has on oily fish. Other fish that is perfect for the BBQ is meaty fish such as cod steaks, salmon steaks, tuna fish, monkfish, halibut, sea bass or sea bream and any other meaty white fish with skin on. Seafood such as scallops and prawns also make a tasty additions to the barbecue as they are great cooked on skewers over hot coals……I often make seafood kebabs with cherry tomatoes and peppers, and they are delectable! Another handy way to barbecue fish is to cook the fish in foil parcels, this way the fish is kept moist and any added marinade or vegetables cooks along with the fish without falling through the BBQ grill!
This Great British BBQ Fish Giveaway will run for FOUR weeks! What will you cook if you win? What will you cook on your BBQ if you win this box of fish…….a salmon steak in a foil parcel? Or many some WONDERFUL seafood kebabs? Or maybe you fancy cooking some lovely cod steaks over the coals, and then serve them with a caper and olive oil sauce…..or, perhaps some delicious kippers will be your chosen fish for the barbie!

I like sardines done on the BBQ, reminds me of holidays in Portugal!
GREAT choice and one my favourites too!
Marguerite Buxton says

Thanks very much Marguerite and Good Luck!
amelia avossa says
Simple Thai sweet kingprawns and pineapple kebabs 😀 YUM
That sounds fabulous!
Gillian Holmes says
Trying to think of an answer but to be honest this would probably make more more fish friendly, beyond tuna pasta I don’t really engage with fish. 🙂
How about barbecued salmon maybe? Good Luck anyway…..:-)
I’m really not much of a BBQ girl, I would rather cook inside and then take it outside to eat it. However, I do love sardines on the BBQ as they stink up the house if you grill them inside!!!
Grilled sardines on the BBQ is a GREAT choice Janice!
Gillian Holmes says

Salmon with Thai chili sauce – fab on the BBQ¬
I LOVE salmon on the BBQ!
Linda Hobbis says
Haven’t tried it yet but we’re planning to do some bbq hake with a chilli, ginger, lemon and coriander coating (just in tinfoil with some butter).
That would be JUST fabulous and hake would stand up to barbecuing very well too.
kirstine meredith says
It would have to be Hake or King Prawns
BOTH lovely choices!
Dave at eRecipeCards says
Good luck with the giveaway. You always have such great ones… I’ll treat the delivery person to a Kansas City BBQ when i win 😉
THANKS Dave! If only I could send the fish to you in Kansas……maybe one day I will have an International fish giveaway!

Salmon with Thai chili sauce
Danielle Vedmore says
A simple dish is salmon marinated in olive oil, garlic, fresh lemon juice and rosemary (minimum 3 hours) then put on the BBQ in foil parcels. Simple but delicious! xoxo

EMMA WALTERS says

EMMA WALTERS says

To be honest, I haven’t BBQ’ed a lot of fish but I’d love to change that. I’ve had sardines once and it was amazing! I’d love to try a tin-foil salmon recipe 🙂
I am posting my salmon in tinfoil recipe later today!
Katherine L says
I’m already subscribed via email 🙂
The favourite in our house has to be sardines or mackerel with honey, chilli & lemon started off in a foil packet and then finished on the bbq so they go crispy and sticky!
ALL great fish ideas for the BBQ…..
Hannah Moody says
I absolutely LOVE massive tiger prawns barbecued to perfection! Ooh they’re so luxiourious and tasty tasty tasty – especially when they go ‘POP’ in your mouth 🙂
I also LOVE HUGE prawns on the barbecue too….love them!
Jacqui Turner says
Tandoori Salmon – I think it’s a Jamie Oliver one, but we have it every single time we have a BBQ now since it’s uber delicious!
I adore curried fish and salmon always takes the spices so well too…..
Cathy at Wives with Knives says
What a fantastic giveaway, Karen. I’m looking forward to your salmon and prawn recipe. Our salmon season is at its peak right now and I’m always searching for new recipes. Wrapping it in foil is a sure way to keep it moist and tender.
Thanks Cathy! I have just posted the salmon and prawn recipe and I hope you like it! Karen
Phyllis Ellett says
Just a simple Mackerel (we live by the sea and it is so cheap here). Simply done. Garlic chopped, salt, pepper, finely chopped bay leaves and olive oil. All mixed together then ‘marinade’ inside and out of fish. I.e. cover all over and inside the gutted fish. Then just put on BBQ for 5 minutes or so each side. Then with a bit of salad on a plate and a crispy roll. Sit down and enjoy the sun and lovely healthy fresh food.
FABULOUS recipe and thanks SO much for sharing it too….I have saved this idea as I LOVE mackerel!
Phyllis Ellett says

melanie stirling says
I love salmon simply cooked on the barbecue with just salt and pepper added 🙂
Snap, me too!
Maya Russell says
I like blackened cajun fish – Cajun spice mix: 1tbsp salt, 2 tsp garlic powder, 2 tsp ground black pepper, 1 1.2 tsp ground cumin, 1tsp cayenne pepper, 1 1/2 tsp paprika
Dip your fish fillets (e.g. sea bass, salmon) in melted butter and sprinkle each side with the seasoning mixture. Cook on the BBQ.
THANKS so much for the recipe….I am going to try that, as I love Cajun spices…..Brilliant, thanks! Karen
Angela - Garden Tea Cakes and Me says
I like prawns with a sweet chilli marinade
One of my favourites too!
Cheryll H says
Don’t have any recipes :'( My fave fish on the BBQ is salmon 🙂 @pipersky1
LOVE BBQ salmon too….
Maria @ Feisty Tapas says
Sardines on corn bread, the juices transfer to the bread. They must be had the night of the 23rd to the 24th of June by a bonfire, to celebrate St John’s if possible on a beach in Galicia 😉 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_John%27s_Eve
We celebrate St Jean’s Bonfire here in France too…..and what a GREAT recipe Maria!
Hayley Fountain says
I’ve never tried fish on the bbq, but would love to now.Thankyou for the giveaway.

Clare F Wood says
Prawns on the BBQ yum
I love prawns on the BBQ
Jane Townson says
I don’t eat fish myself, but my hubby would love this – he likes kingprawns or salmon on the BBQ.
I love salmon on the BBQ.
It might not be the cheapest option, but I love halibut. The texture of this fish is ideal for the BBQ because unlike many others, its very ‘stable’ and doesnt so easily fall apart. My dad went to Canada for fishing a few times already, thats how he got the whole family hooked on this fish 🙂
I also LOVE halibut and agree that is is FAB on the BBQ too….stays together and has a lovely meaty texture.
Mike Terry says
Salmon sizzling on the BBQ ….. heaven!!
I LOVE salmon on the BBQ – it’s one of my favourites!
catherine @mummylion says
it has to be cajun spiced tiger prawns
That sounds amazing!
katrina day-reilly says
Salmon marinated in sweet chilli yummy
That sounds wonderful!
mandy waller says
I love salmon and prawns on the bbq smells and tastes so much better:)
Cat (Yellow Days) says
I love shell fish so probably prawns and scallops brushed with a bit of garlic butter.
DIVINE! Simple and delectable!
Vodka marinated monkfish
Prawn skewers (so many options)
Foil baked fish
Tuna of course
Tend to make it up as we go along
THANKS so much for those BRILLIANT ideas! LOVE them all…like you, I tend to make them up as I go along too…
Hazel Christopher says
I love BBQd Mackerel, I live on the coast and when I was younger I’d go fishing with my dad, his partner and my brother – he’d catch Mackerel and his wife would gut them and clean them and stick them straight on our little disposable BBQs, can’t get fresher than that! We’d always have it just with a squeeze of lemon. I love Mackerel but they can be a bit bony 🙂
Wonderful memories and a wonderful idea for simple mackerel on the BBQ too….GOOD LUCK!
laura banks says
king prawns marinated in a thai sauce
Cherry Mischievous says
Seabass with a sprinkling of fresh lime
One of my favourite fishes!
E Johnson says
Mackerel with citrus juice squeezed onto it – keep it simple!
Absolutely, I agree!
I love Salmon burgers on a barbecue, really easy to make and delicious!
They sound wonderful!
Diana Cotter says
Swordfish is wonderful – another one who has happy memories of Portuguese barbecues. Doesn’t need anything more than seasalt a touch of pepper
I agree, and I LOVE swordfish too Diana!
In Malaysia we like to BBQ prawns with the shells on, after a spicy marinade. Gives it a lot more flavour.
I LOVE prawns with their shells on on the BBQ! GREAT choice!
