What can I grill besides burgers?

If you’re looking for something meatless, try our Thai-inspired cauliflower “steaks” or our eggplant steak frites with chimichurri; they’re so flavorful, even omnivores will want a bite. Try a full red snapper, or for something more low-key, go grilled shrimp, spicy hot shot salmon fillets, or even grilled scallops.
