What are you grilling today?

I promised the wife a meal tonight so

Appetizer:

Grilled Bruschetta with roasted garlic goat cheese spread and grilled tomatoes and portabellas

Grilled jumbo shrimp in a spicy ginger lime sauce.

Salad:

Grilled watermelon served over baby greens with raspberries, sweet onion dressing, mint and feta cheese

Entree:

Beer can chicken with a spicy homemade rub
Grilled sweet potatoes
Grilled red pepper and asparagus

Desert:

Grilled pears with a caramel glaze served with ice cream topped with candied toasted pecans and home made whipped cream of course.

I'm thinking about making a white wine sangria but I might be lazy and just put some white wine and beer on ice.


What's on your menu?

Love turkey on the grill. I never could develop a taste for salmon though.

I never had a "water apple" but it sounds delicious.

You can keep the green beans though (yuck)

Last night, brats, pre-cooked in beer and onions and grilled along with red and yellow bell peppers, yellow onions and one hot pepper added at the last minute.
Tonight chicken, peppers, mushrooms, cherry tomato and onion on skewers served with grilled fresh pineapple and rice.

PS, try salmon dry rubbed with Cajun seasoning. Use olive oil on fish just before putting on a clean hot grill. Two minutes a side for a 3/4 inch steak.

Good for grilling..

Barbecued Beef Kabobs

1/4 c Lemon juice
2 tb Worcestershire sauce
3 tb Corn oil
1/3 c Soy sauce
2 tb Yellow mustard
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 lb Lean round steak, boneless
1 Large green pepper
4 oz Fresh mushrooms
8 Cherry tomatoes
1 large onion

Make marinade by combining lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, oil, soy sauce, mustard, garlic. Cut beef into 1" chunks, then put in marinade. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 12 hours or more.

Cut vegetables into chunks, making at least 8 pieces of each. Remove beef cubes from marinade, reserving marinade. On 4 medium or long skewers, alternate pieces of meat and vegetables.

Grill over hot coals, basting occasionally with marinade, for about 15 minutes, turning skewers regularly. Serve hot.

Yep, I posted the pineapple recipe just for you. I noticed you liked both grilled pears and watermelon. Hope you like it.

Everything tastes better on the grill IMO. ;)

"grilled pineapple with a spicy mango chutney glaze sprinkled with coconut". Sounds really good...I love coconut.

The pears sound great too though.
