Grilling recipes and stuff

Postby Marie5656 » Thu Jul 01, 2010 1:22 pm

Since this is going to be a long weekend, and a holiday and all..figured we could share some recipes for the grill, or picnic...whatever.

Here is a good butter that would go good with the seafood...

Compound Butter

1/2 cup of lobster base, sometimes available in bouillon cubes in specialty markets

1 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

1 tsp finely minced garlic

1 tbsp white wine, any kind will do!

The juice squeezed from one half of a fresh lemon

1 stick of unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

Mix all of the ingredients together, making sure of an even consistency. Chill for about 5 minutes, or until the butter has solidified into a pliable dough-like texture. Place the butter on a piece of plastic wrap, and form into a sort of stick, rolled up tightly in the plastic. Place in the refrigerator and chill for about 2-3 hours, or until solid. Cut into slices to serve over hot shrimp. This is a great recipe, because if you do have butter left over, you can just place it in your freezer and eat it anytime over many different types of seafood or fish!
