Grilled Corn on the Cob Upgrade: Pesto Parmesan

If you’re not grilling corn, you’re frankly making a big damn mistake. And with pesto and parmesan, this version is stupid good. Imagine an Italian version of 'Elote'.


Makes 4 Ears of Corn
 

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 ears of corn, husks & silk removed
  • Neutral oil spray or 1 tablespoon of oil, like avocado
  • ¼-½ cup prepared pesto sauce (or make your own: Fresh Basil Pesto)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ¼ cup grated/finely shredded fresh parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Wrap each ear of corn in Saran wrap, microwave on high for 5 minutes - remove plastic wrap
  2. Heat grill to medium high
  3. Spray/rub oil lightly on each ear of corn and place on the grill - turning occasionally and get grill marks - about 5 minutes
  4. When corn gets color on all sides, brush pesto on all sides
  5. Serve with a pinch of salt and garnish with parmesan on top

Double Wrapped Shrimp & Bacon Tacos

These hold a special place in my heart. Why you wonder? Because they are so stinkin good. Btw you should always have a can of refried beans in your pantry. Bbtw, these were made with the no-fat version and you would never have known. Really.  


Makes about 6

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3/4 lb peeled, uncooked shrimp cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 lime cut in half, then one half into wedges
  • 6 soft corn tortillas
  • 3/4 cup refried beans, warmed
  • 6 hard taco shells, warmed according to package directions
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • Lettuce, shredded
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked, crispy and crumbled
  • 3 green onions, finely diced
  • Cholula hot sauce

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat pan well then add oil and shrimp - stir-fry quickly as the shrimp will cook fast 
  2. When almost done (about 2 minutes) sprinkle shrimp with Old Bay then squeeze juice from the lime half on top 
  3. Give them one quick mix and remove to a bowl alongside the tortillas, beans, sour cream and lettuce, bacon and green onions 
  4. Now simply let people make their own: put some beans on one side of a soft tortilla, the wrap that around a hard shell tortilla
  5. Add some sour cream, some lettuce, the shrimp, some bacon, some green onions and finally a few shakes of hot sauce
  6. Eat – as if that wasn’t fricking obvious

Double Breakfast Burger

What started out as a simple breakfast sandwich quickly became a beast - and I mean that in the nicest way possible. Don’t get me wrong, it’s incredibly delicious… but will def take some time to get through.
