Let me explain a couple of things as I begin this Friday Fave post.
One of my sons is really good at smoking pulled pork and we all love that. But, today we are going to actually focus on grilling for our Friday Faves and share some of our favorite things to throw on the barbie! After all, school if almost out and things are heating up. Memorial Day is coming and after that a plethora of other reasons to cook out on the grill will present themselves. So, let's get started!
I love grilled chicken and corn. Last year I shared a grilling post with some of my favorite recipes that we had enjoyed at Alicia and Adrian's house. Just thinking about these recipes is making my mouth water. The Cilantro-Lime butter to slather on corn and rice is so good! This post also includes shrimp on skewers which is one of Alicia's favorites and grilled pineapple which is Lindsey's choice.
Alicia loves surf and turf and says that she loves a good steak. I have recently perfected (in my humble opinion) a great way to grill steak that comes out so tender and delicious.
Maddy loves veggies of course, so the grilled corn and other grilled vegetables are right up her ally.
Even if you aren't firing up the barbecue, you can grill indoors on your grill pan. I wanted a grill pan for years, then, when I finally got a new set of cookware, they came with a grill pan! I was thrilled! This one is similar to mine. This evening I did some zucchini in the grill pan. It was really good! Using the grill pan with vegetables makes them so much more tasty and different than just the normal way of sauteing them. And the grill marks make them look so pretty.
Grilled Zucchini is easy to do. Just slice it length wise. Heat up your grill pan and add some olive oil when it is hot. Lay your zucchini in the pan on the diagonal to get the nice grill marks.
Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and parsley. It just takes a couple of minutes per side to get tender slices with beautiful grill marks.
Finally, when it comes to grilling, I think my husband would choose a hamburger every time. How about you? What will you choose? It's time to start thinking about it and to start celebrating National Barbecue Month! If you need a grill or a grill pan, here are a few choices to fit whatever your needs are! Have fun!
