 Grilled Fish Provencal  Grilled Fish Provencal

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoons dried Italian herb seasoning
  • Pinch of red-pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 4 wild-caught white fish fillets (6oz each)
  • 10oz organic sweet grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Directions:

  1. Heat grill to medium. In a small bowl, add lemon zest, Italian seasoning, red-pepper flakes, salt pepper and garlic powder. Toss well to combine; set aside.
  2. If using fresh fish, pat dry and set aside. If using frozen fish, place fish fillets on a clean kitchen towel (or paper towels) and cover with another clean kitchen towel (or paper towels) and gently press to remove any excess water; set aside.
  3. Place side-by-side on kitchen counter, four 14-inch squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Leaving a two-inch border around the foil, divide the sliced onion and zucchini evenly among the four sheets of foil. Season veggies with salt and pepper. Top veggies with the fish fillets. Sprinkle fish generously with the spice mixture. Then, top each fillet with a handful of tomato halves and one tablespoon of olive oil. Fold foil over ingredients, crimping the edges to form a sealed pouch, as shown in photos below.
  4. Place packets on grill. Cover and grill until fish is just cooked through (about 10-12 minutes). Remove packets from grill. Open carefully, as the packets will release some steam, and transfer to serving plates.

Enjoy!

 Pulled Pork Enchiladas  Pulled Pork Enchiladas

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (packed) Pork Carnitas (Mexican Pulled Pork) or other shredded meat
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup tinned black beans or red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can (15oz / 400g) corn kernels, drained
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (any good melting cheese)
  • 8 tortillas
  • 3 cups (750ml/25oz) Enchilada Sauce

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300F/180C.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan over high heat. Add the pork carnitas and cook until the bottom is nicely browned – about 1½ minutes. Do not turn, just make the bottom crispy (to keep the pulled pork as moist as possible), then remove the pulled pork into a bowl. It does not matter if the top isn’t heated through, it will heat in the oven.
  3. Add the corn, black beans, ½ cup enchilada sauce and ½ cup cheese into the bowl and mix to combine.
  4. Spread ½ cup of Enchilada Sauce on the bottom of the baking dish.
  5. Place ½ packed cup of filling (from step 3) into a tortilla and roll up and place in the baking dish.
  6. Pour over the remaining Enchilada Sauce, and bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and scatter the cheese on, then bake for a further 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and golden.
  8. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Balsamic Grilled Chicken     Balsamic-Marinated-Grilled-Chicken-Breast

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary

Directions:

  1. Cut breast in half lengthwise so you have two chicken cutlets.
  2. Combine the marinade ingredients and pour over chicken. Let it marinate in the refrigerator a minimum of two hours, but preferably 4 to 6 hours or longer.
  3. Preheat a clean indoor or outdoor grill to medium-high. Make sure your grates are clean and lightly rub with olive oil to prevent sticking.
  4. When the grill is hot, lay the chicken on the grill. Cook the chicken until well browned on both sides and firm, but not hard to the touch, about 7 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate when done.

Enjoy!
