Shoulda been there

Lemon Garlic seafood:
1 pound 31-40 count shrimp, cleaned and skewered
1 1/2 pounds mahi mahi, skin on
3 tbl roast garlic paste (roast garlic cloves run through FP with a bit of
olive oil)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbl dried oregano
Marinate shrimp and fish in sauce.
Nectarines with Gingered Chevre:
10 nectarines, split and pitted
8 oz chevre
1/4 crystallized ginger, chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
blend chevre, ginger and spices in food processor (little bowl)
nectarines on the grill cut side down until the edges get charry (6-8
minutes?). flip. put a dollop of the cheese mix into the nectrine and finish
grilling until the cheese gets bubbly.
Grilled veggie salad:
1 loaf of french bread, thick sliced
2 zucchini, halved
2 yellow squash, halved
1 eggplant, quartered
4 carrots, halved
1 bunch green onion
1 head radicchio, halved
1 bell pepper, quartered
2 tbl Penzey’s greek seasoning mixed in 2 tbl hot water (per directions on
1 tbl (approx) basil chiffonade
1 tbl roast garlic paste (roasted garli cloves run through the FB with a bit
of olive oil)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup champaign vinegar
4 oz feta
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
blend dressing and put aside
toast bread on grill and put aside
grill and char veggies to taste.
Chop the veggies (when cooled a bit), toss with feta and almonds.
Add dressing, just as much as you need, you’ll have some left over.
serve on the toasted bread to allow the bread to soak up the dressing.
Salsa verde:
2 pounds tomatillos
1 bunch cilantro
4 cloves garlic
1 bunch green onion
1 anaheim pepper
2 jalapenos
2 tbl lime juice
tabasco to taste
pinch of cinnamon
chop everything. blend in food processor.
Salt to taste. refrigerate over night to allow flavors to blend.
and for dessert I grilled up some fresh pineapple and served it on vanilla ice
cream. We had mexican soda (limon, mandarina y tamarindo), honey bush iced tea, and Leinies Sunset Wheet beer (my new favorite beer).
Now that everyone is gone I just want to shove salsa verde in my mouth until i die. I don’t need no herdez!!! I love my salsa verde (now that i finally worked out a recipe I like).
