Summer Supper Without The Sizzle

July 24, 2023

Even the most dedicated, diehard cooks will find it challenging to stand in front of a hot stove these days. Fire up the grill but not for long and cook foods that do not take too much time. Eggplant and zucchini slices take but a few minutes. Marinate them in olive oil, herbs, spices and a splash of vinegar after grilling. Great side dish. Garden tomatoes are best right now so grab them, add a dash of salt and a sprinkling of extra virgin olive oil and some fresh snipped basil. Set aside. Grill shrimp in their shell in an oiled cast iron pan for 3 to 4 minutes or until shells turn pink and when cool enough to handle, remove the shells. Make a no cook remoulade sauce to accompany the shrimp. Grilled clams and mussels in the shell are also fast cooking. Serve eggplant, tomatoes and shrimp with remoulade sauce. Delicious and no sweat!
