Preparation

  • Preheat a large char-grill pan or barbecue to high heat. Place the smoked and sweet paprika, the chilli, garlic, lemon rind, oil and vinegar in a small bowl and mix to combine. Reserve ¼ cup (60ml) of the mixture.
  • Place the scallops, sardines, squid, prawn, mussels and crab on a large oven tray, drizzle with the paprika mixture and toss to coat. Cook the crab, covered+, for 5 minutes each side. Set aside and keep warm. 
  • Add the scallops, shell-side down, and cook, covered, for 3 minutes. Set aside and keep warm. Add the prawns, sardines and squid and cook for 1–2 minutes each side or until charred and just cooked. Set aside and keep warm.
