In a small food processor, combine the tamarind, garlic, jalapeño, cane syrup, molasses, ketchup and water. Season with salt and pepper. Process until smooth. Brush the seafood with the tamarind mixture, several times while grilling. The grilling time will vary according to size.

The whole fish and crabs should go on first, they usually take about 6 to 8 minutes, depending on weight. The lobsters with take about 6 to 7 minutes. The prawns and oysters about 4 to 6 minutes, again depending on size. The lobster and crab shell will turn bright reddish pink and the prawns will turn pink and their tails will turn in.
