Chefs, What's the Most Interesting Thing You've Made on a Grill?
I did some marinated baby octopus on a spiedini (skewer) the other day that was delicious on the grill. I also like to grill fruit, like peaches and pineapple, when they are in season. And, of course, pizza.
I've made a grilled Five Alive knock-off. Five Alive is a citrus drink made by Minute Maid, now only widely available for purchase in Canada and the UK. It contains orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, and lime. I cut the fruit in half, grill it flesh side down, then juice it. Grilling it adds a nice smokiness to the drink.
Bacon-wrapped basil banana bites, Hachiya persimmons, and Asian pears on Himalayan salt blocks. My dry-aged beef is pretty killer, too.
Utilizing the grill for smoking purposes is one of my favorite methods of cooking. I place a small box filled with fruit wood over the top of the grate, fill it with the freshest fish available, and smoke away. Serving it warm for service or chilling the product for a cold dish later are great options.
