  • Lemon, chilli & garlic dressing
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled & crushed
  • 2 long red chillis (optional), deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) lemon juice
  • 1 cup (250ml) olive oil
  • 1/3 cup parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • salt flakes
  • freshly grated black pepper
  • Lemon & Saffron Aioli
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) lemon juice
  • pinch saffron strands
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tspn Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, roasted & crushed
  • salt flakes
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil

METHOD

  1. For the dressing, combine garlic, chilli, juice, oil, parsley, salt and pepper together in a medium sized screw top jar. Seal lid firmly, before shaking vigorously to combine.
  2. Place the prepared seafood in individual bowls and evenly divide half the dressing between the bowls, tossing gently to combine. Cover each bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes, to allow seafood to marinate.
  3. For the aioli, place lemon juice and saffron together in a small bowl and leave to stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place yolks, mustard, roasted garlic, salt and pepper together in a small food processor and pulse to combine. With the motor going, slowly add oils until mixture becomes thick. Slowly add lemon juice and saffron, blending until combined. Spoon into a serving bowl and set aside until required.
  4. Preheat barbecue to high.
  5. Place crab onto the grill or grill plate and cook for 5 minutes each side, or until cooked through. Remove from heat quickly to avoid overcooking and place on a serving platter, cover in foil to keep warm.
  6. Repeat step 5 with prawns for 2 minutes each side or until cooked through.
  7. Repeat step 5 with mussels for 2-3 minutes or until mussels start opening.
  8. Repeat step 5 with marinated squid, pipi’s and fish fillets for 1-2 minutes or until opaque or pipis start opening.
  9. To serve seafood platter, drizzle remaining dressing over the barbecued seafood and serve with lemon and saffron aioli and lemon wedges.
