Memorial Day is usually associated with burgers and hotdogs, but if you're looking for more sophisticated grill grub, look to the sea. Spicy grilled fish, Cajun shrimp skewers, scallops and even grilled lobster are different and flavorful options for your summer grilling repertoire. We've even got a grilled octopus recipe if you're feeling adventurous.
