Default Here come Memorial Day weekend: what's your favorite grillingrecipe??

Good afternon all,

With the holiday weekend (at least in the U.S. - is it Bank Holiday
elsewhere?) almost upon us, I was curious to see what my fellow
foodies love to put on the grill.

I'm leaning towards grilled ribeyes and/or some sort of seafood skewer
(shrimp recipe follows). I also will probably do some grilled
asparagus and maybe a creamy cucumber salad, since they're in season.


You?


Shrimp Kebabs with Lemon and Garlic

These are very quick to put together and taste great. I usually just
whisk up the marinade and toss the shrimp in, then skewer last-minute.

You can marinate the shrimp for an hour at room temperature or two
hours in the fridge, turning skewers occasionally.

Yield: Makes 6 servings


48 uncooked large shrimp, unpeeled, deveined (thawed if frozen)
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons finely grated lemon peel
2 garlic cloves, minced
2/3 cup olive oil

Thread 4 shrimp on each of 6 metal skewers; place on rimmed baking
sheet. Whisk lemon juice, lemon peel, and garlic in medium bowl;
slowly whisk in oil. Season marinade with salt and pepper. Pour
marinade over skewers, dividing equally.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Grill shrimp until pink on
outside and opaque in center, about 4 minutes per side.

Grilled leg of lamb. Bought a boneless leg that was nicely wrapped in
netting for easy roasting, but, we do it different.

Took the roast out of the netting and unrolled it. Mixed together chopped
garlic and rosemary and rubbed the meat, then poured buttermilk over the
entire piece in a rectangular dish. Marinate overnight.

Heat grill and take the meat still wet and put it on the ht grill. Cook
to medium rare or medium, let rest and slice to serve.

The leg sometimes has a gamey taste to it and the buttermilk removes it.

Wow that sounds good. I've done a similar rub with pork tenderloin but
not lamb. How long does it take to grill?

That looks really good. Snipped and saved, thanks!

Ah, so buttermilk is the trick? I do the rest, but not the buttermilk
part. In the past, I've had to be picky about which country my lamb
comes from.

I don't like Australian lamb, New Zealand is much, much better and
American is best... IMO. It's next to impossible to buy American lamb
at an affordable price, so I settle for NZ lamb. I was very happy
with it the last time I cooked it (which wasn't too long ago).

With the loin cuts I never use the buttermilk; I guess you could but I don't
think it is needed. Usually, I just grill them with olive oil, rosemary,
and garlic. Sometimes I'll put a few drops of balsamic vinegar on the
plate.

Sounds good to me! I have to work so won't worry about it. sigh

If I had an option for grilling, I'd make kebabs alternating shrimp,
tender beef cubes and mushrooms with a similar recipe, but I'd
pre-marinate the kebabs buried in the marinade sealed in ziplocks until
I was ready to grill, at least for 24 hours. :-)

Another great grilled item are whole marinated portabello mushroom caps.

It's hard to beat kebabs, isn't it?

Sorry you have to work. But you can always grill another day (to

Too true. g
They are popular for guest dinners and potlucks too, and I really don't
find them to be much trouble to prepare.
