Whether you're cooking on gas, charcoal, or (my favorite!) a smoker, such as Traeger, the only thing you need other than the seafood is olive oil, salt, and pepper. Melted butter is optional, but so so...

Did I ever tell you about the first date my husband ever took me on? He brought me to a restaurant by the beach where I promptly ordered a chicken caesar salad and proceeded to eat only half of it.
