Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Fish in Indian ginger masala

    • nicolepellegrini on May 12, 2017

      This was nice - a good easy weeknight protein with a heavy ginger flavor for sure. I broiled my halibut steaks instead of grilling and it came out fine. Would make again.

  • Salmon with sour orange and red onion mojo

    • nicolepellegrini on August 10, 2018

      Very nice and simple for a weeknight dinner. The mojo is very good (I sauteed the garlic in the olive oil first since I can't tolerate raw garlic.)

  • Halibut, Veracruz style

    • nicolepellegrini on April 28, 2016

      Pretty decent for an easy, fast weeknight dinner. Added some yellow squash to the grill pan as well for more vegetables and to make it a complete meal. Would only prepare with really fresh, quality fish as the seasoning is fairly simple.

  • Swordfish with lemon, garlic, and olive oil

    • nicolepellegrini on December 30, 2020

      Nice, simple way to prepare swordfish. The marinade helps keep the fish moist.

  • Flounder with orange salsa

    • nicolepellegrini on March 14, 2021

      Extremely light and fresh tasting. Flounder is such a delicate fish, I liked that this allowed its texture and flavor to shine through with minimal other flavor besides the citrus.

  • Beef top round with jalapeño marinade

    • nicolepellegrini on September 27, 2020

      A decent marinade for beef top round, but nothing stand out about the recipe.

  • Peppery flank steak

    • nicolepellegrini on July 29, 2020

      This is pretty much my "go to" recipe for a flank steak marinade, I've made it dozens of times, no doubt. The trickiest thing is getting the grill on the steak just right.

  • Mexican-style skirt steak

    • nicolepellegrini on January 29, 2021

      This was a decent marinade for skirt steak, but maybe not a favorite. The vegetables were very nice though and it all sort of came out tasting like fajitas.

  • Sesame flank steak

    • nicolepellegrini on December 19, 2020

      An exceptionally simple flank steak marinade, but it works and leaves the meat very tender and flavorful.

  • Star anise and pomegranate flank steak

    • nicolepellegrini on May 29, 2021

      This was a DELICIOUS flank steak marinade - one of the best I've tried to date.

  • Grilled pork chops with fried sage

    • nicolepellegrini on June 11, 2019

      Did not care for this. Even after the full 3 hour marinade the pork came out dry and lacking in flavor. Perhaps would have been better chopping the sage to add to the marinade instead of just putting it on at the end. Definitely NOT a repeater.

  • Wine-scented leg of lamb

    • nicolepellegrini on September 21, 2015

      Marinated overnight and cooked on an indoor grill pan (next time would do it less than recommended time, 30 minutes instead of 35-45.) Flavor was excellent from the marinade; the S.O. loved it because it wasn't too gamey and meat was very tender.

  • Italian bread salad with tomatoes and basil

    • nicolepellegrini on October 07, 2020

      I don't like cucumbers so I made this with diced kohlrabi instead. A good version of panzanella; I liked the dressing the best because the mixture of red wine and balsamic vinegars was different but very tasty.

  • Country bread and pork tenderloin skewers

    • sarahawker on March 14, 2021

      Have made this dozens of times and every time it's a huge hit. I'm still no master at grilling so burning the bread is about 50% chance for me. Have made with both pork tenderloin and pork shoulder, We like the shoulder as it's more fool-proof from drying out.
