Whether you choose to use a variety of seafood or just fish fillets, this same method works every time. Simple, fresh flavours that are brought to life once they hit that hot grill. The piri piri sauce here can be stored in a jar in the fridge for up to a week or two but be sure to cover the top with a slick of extra virgin olive to seal it before covering with a lid. Scallops, crab claws are also a nice addition here.

To make the piri piri sauce; Place a griddle pan over a high heat while you toss the onion, tomatoes, garlic and chillies in a little oil. When the pan is smoking hot, add the vegetables and char on all sides until softened and caramelised. Transfer to a food processor along with the vinegar, olive oil, thyme and paprika and process until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil, garlic, chilli & half the chopped herbs. Add the seafood and toss to combine.
With a hot griddle pan or over a high heat on the BBQ, cook the marinated seafood. Cook for 2-3 minutes either side or until cooked all the way through and the mussel and clam shells have opened completely.
Transfer to a serving platter and serve with the piri piri sauce and sourdough bread.
