Shish Kebab Marinade Recipe

Khorovats or Armenian shish kebabs are something I hold very dear to my heart. They remind me of many family memories over Sunday barbecues. Picture My Big Fat Greek Wedding: loud conversation, endless plates of aromatic foods, plenty of wine, music, and everyone in everyone else’s business, not afraid to give their opposing opinions. Pure bliss. Unfortunately, I’ve lived 3,000 miles away from this ritual for six years now, but the smell of lamb, onions, peppers, and fresh mint sizzling away on the grill has the ability to bring it all back. There is something about that scent and those flavors that make me feel at home again; surrounded by good people and good vibes. Read More

This open-faced sandwich is a great meal. Splurge on a great loaf of whole-grain bread and top each slice with a piece of grilled salmon. I love the creamy flavors of avocado in contrast with the crunchy romaine and grilled onion. Weekday tip: make a few extra hard-boiled eggs to keep for snacks during the rest of the week.

So we know grilling and Father’s Day are a marriage made in beautiful glory, but I don’t think anything defies traditional dessert like grilled fruit does.  Being that my father and I are allergic to everything besides pineapples and bananas, this was a divine idea for a summer dessert, nevermind this holiday that celebrates the men in our lives.

Pineapple is my fruit of choice, with two dollops of Banana Purée dashed with cinnamon for a quaint savor. Lightweight on the belly and refreshing, it’s hard to go wrong with two fruits that taste well and make you feel better.

I wanted to transform these common snacks into a dessert but combine them like an entreé.  So here’s a recipe for a dish that your dad can dive into which includes a sweet charring and a contrasting puréed dip.

Chilean Sea Bass with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce Recipe

There’s something about Chilean sea bass that for me, evokes an image of cooking with my finest china, sipping on a nice Bordeaux with strands of pearls hanging over my neck. In laymen’s terms, I feel fancy as Chilean sea bass always catches my eye. The beauty of cooking sea bass lies in the various options you have to prepare the fish. Grilled, pan-fried, broiled or baked, the opportunities are endless. Whether glazed in miso or brushed lightly with olive oil and lemon juice, you want to highlight the fish without overpowering its delicate nature.

This recipe finds the sea bass atop a bed of the creamiest and most flavorful red pepper sauce around. Red peppers are traditionally roasted on the grill and while I’ve included different ways to roast or even broil the peppers in the oven, you can always use jarred roasted peppers in lieu of roasting on the grill. Though the flavor is certainly more intense from roasting the peppers yourself, this recipe contains some flexibility in how you want to ultimately prepare the sauce and fish itself.

So if you’re searching for that perfect recipe to help you show off your inner “gourmand,” look no further.
