DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat grill to medium high
  2. Put wings in a large bowl, drizzle lightly with oil and season with salt – toss well and place on grill
  3. Cook until golden brown and well marked on each side (turning as necessary to prevent burning) 15-20 minutes total

Grilled Steak & Lobster

image.jpg

Serves  4

Memorial Day is often dogs, burgers and potato salad – but does it have to be?  How about you elevate it a bit and bust out some steak & lobster?

And trust me, no one will be disappointed….

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 – 6 ounce steaks
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Juice of 1 whole lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 lobster tails

DIRECTIONS 

  1. Remove steaks and tails from fridge 30 minutes before cooking
  2. Meanwhile, combine butter, thyme, mustard, lemon juice, garlic & salt in small pot over low heat until melted – keep warm.
  3. Using kitchen shears, cut right up the middle of the shell towards the tail, but not through the tail. Using the cut as your guide, use a knife to cut down through the meat but not through the bottom shell. Pull back the sides of the shell to expose the meat and brush well with the butter mixture – set aside.
  4. Heat grill to medium/high, rub steaks with olive oil, season with salt & pepper and cook about 5 minutes, flip and cook another 4 minutes or until done to your liking. Remove steaks from grill, cover with foil and let rest about 10 minutes.
  5. Place tails meat-side down for approximately 5-6 minutes, then turn and cook another 3-4 minutes or until done – basting of course. Serve steak and lobster with extra butter sauce

2 ingredients - OK, technically 3 if you count the stick. Larger shrimp like at least 31/40's are great. That just means there are between 31 and 40 shrimp per pound.

NYE GRILLING: HOISIN BEEF SKEWERS

If you are entertaining a crowd for NYE, try this easy grilling recipe, it will make those New Yorks steaks a bit more interesting! 

These can be made in 5 minutes and cooked in about 5. That's pretty darn good - plus you get to eat them off those cool little sticks. Put the steak in the freezer for about 15 minutes before slicing - it will make it easier.

Yes the tomato and cucumber are nice, refreshing & certainly delicious.  But what really makes this is the quick tzatziki. It adds a crazy amount of flavor that had us wanting a 2nd & 3rd.

ASIAN GRILLED CHICKEN TACOS

There’s just something about making tacos on the grill – and when they’re Asian inspired they’re even more special. Try this version for a great change. 

(BTW, I made this for a recent Open House event at System Pavers, and they loved 'em).

Thank you Argentina! This is genius on any kind of grilled beef. I put it on steaks as they come out of the fridge, and let them come to room temp. Then again after grilling.
