My husband made the most awesome pork chops on the grill tonight. Don't really know what he did, but they were marinated in soy sauce, fresh ginger, maybe a bit of brown sugar or honey. They were yummy! I'm not going to bug him for the recipe, I will just ask that he make them occasionally. ;)

I grill fish all the time. I usually do firm fish like swordfish, tuna and salmon. I have done trout also that was great. I don't use foil. The trout I did in a grill pan. It's fun to experiment with different types of fish.
Thanks for all of the ideas - I never thought of grilling potatoes directly on the grill - we always wrap them in foil. I bought a grill basket a few weekends ago - does anyone else have one of these? My veggies turned out good, but when they started to soften up they wanted to fall through the cracks. Maybe I should have looked for a basket with smaller slats or I guess I could chop the vegetables a little larger. I have never tried grilling fish other than salmon - I'm always afraid it will fall apart - do you wrap it in foil?
I love to grill zucchini, yellow squash and grape tomatoes. I make extra so the next day I can toss some into a salad - the grilled veggies gives the salad a different flavor if your bored with veggies salads.
One trick we've learned for fast cooking is to microwave pototoes until they are about done. Then we slice them in half (or wedges if they're big) spray them lightly with cooking spray and Lawry's seasoning salt and throw them on the grill for just a couple of minutes (turning to brown and get grill marks).

Well, it is finally getting warm here in Michigan, so we will be firing up the grill more. What are your favorites for on the grill?
One thing that I started doing last year was to take a head of cauliflower, trim the leaves off of the bottom, drizzle with some olive oil and seasonings (and a little parmesan cheese), wrap in foil and put on the grill for 1/2 hour or so. It is so yummy - we sit it in the middle of the table and everyone can reach over and pull off what they want. My three year old loves it.
