Tips

Expert Tips

Grill baskets make it easy to turn or mix foods, and they keep smaller foods from slipping through the grill grate. A sheet of double heavy-duty foil, poked with several holes, performs the same function.

For Caribbean Grill Basket Shrimp, use 1 1/2 pounds of peeled and deveined large shrimp in place of the scallops. Cook the shrimp just until they turn pink.
