Unusual things to grill

I'm a few weeks into my new grill and am having a wonderful time playing with it. I'm pretty much trying to grill as much as I can - last night was snow crab legs, which were fantastic. But I'm already pretty much running out of new ideas of things to throw on there. So, what say you, hounders? What things can I grill that I might not have thought of? I tend not to cook meat for myself, so I'll be especially excited for a wide range of ideas. Thanks!

  1. Romain lettuce.
    Pit fruits in season.

    1. Have you ever grilled fruit? Peaches and pineapples are great grill options. I like to stuff the peaches with sweetened ricotta and almonds and I usually serve the pineapple with ice cream and various other additions.

      1. endive and raddiccio
        whole fish
        roma tomatoes

          1. haloumi
            stone fruits
            asparagus (in season now!)
            spring onions/green onions/scallions

              Haloumi is a great idea. Do I have to do anything to it, like press it the way I do tofu?

                No. I've never had to press it. And it really is delicious. Good luck. Sounds like you are going to be eating really well!!

                Spring onions and asparagus are both amazing on the grill. I can eat an obscene quantity of either or both!

                  heehee Me too! I tend to buy a bunch at the greenmarket and then get home and say, "okay I really should have purchased 3 bundles" because it's not nearly enough for DH and me. But I guess it's good to OD on asparagus now when it's in season locally and get our fill.

                    Asparagus wrapped in prosciuto and brushed with a citrusy vinaigrette is great on the grill.
