Lemony Grilled Mackerel and Squid

with 0 Comment
Weekend gathering brings wonderful grilled delights for family and friends. This time, it's a combination of grilled mackerel and delicious squid. I've used minimal seasoning for this one which can be enhanced to add more spice or flavor if required. While grilling squid, make sure the heat is intense. Mackerel should be grilled on a medium heat to get the best results. As always, I'll recommend a charcoal open grill if you really want to relish the authentic flavor. Make sure you take the whole squid (wings included) and make slight cuts in the center keeping the entire body intact. It's time to quickly make our grill ready for making this delicious and hot serving of grilled seafood in a few easy steps.

The following pizza preparation is rich, cheesy and flavorful. Its topping includes beef mince, white onion and loads of cheese. Seasoning can be moderated or altered as per your taste. For a sharp flavor, a generous amount of red onions can be used in place of white onions. If you avoid red meat, chicken mince can be used though you may not get the authentic flavor. If you prefer a colorful topping, feel free to add bell pepper julienne in it. To get the best results, make sure the mince is not too fine and is completely fat-free. Serve it piping hot as the heavy topping may get soggy if kept for a long time. Let's make this delicious and fulfilling pizza recipe topped with beef mince and loads of cheese.

This simple yet exceedingly delicious dessert is quite popular in Australia and New Zealand. Meringue shells used in this recipe are delicately prepared with care. Topping can be experimented with and can be enriched with local seasonal fruits. Strawberry sauce is also used to add that extra kick. You can even make these meringue shells in advance and can keep them in a refrigerator for a day or two. Instead of making mini-pavlovas, one can also make one large shell to ease the serving process. I prefer to refrigerate this dessert for half an hour after completing the serving plate with the topping. So, let's make this unique and irresistible dessert for our loved ones and close friends, right now.

If you're familiar with the cuisine of Middle-East, you're probably already an admirer of this hugely popular snack. These deep fried balls are made with chickpeas flavored with select herbs and spices. The preparation process is very simple yet the taste is very tempting. It is generally served with tahini sauce though you may use a local sauce variant of your choice. Do not use canned beans else these fritters will get soggy and may break while frying. My Indian neighbors prefer it with classic mint chutney. Use canola or grapeseed oil for frying these delicious balls. The consistency of pulsed chickpea paste dictates how good texture your falafel balls will get. Let's make this delicious recipe.
