HOME COOKING with Mary Ann Esposito
Grill Greats
It's time to move cooking outdoors and fire up the grill!
WHETHER YOU HAVE THE NEWEST
model gas grill with all the bells and
whistles or charcoal is more your style,
grilling is an option all year long. But
it's in the warm summer months that
we are drawn to cooking and eating
outdoors with family and friends. Not
only do we crave the smokey flavor
grilling imparts to our food, we also
appreciate the very process of grilling,
a (mostly) relaxing backyard ritual
that has become a rite of passage into
summer.
When you stop and think beyond
burgers, almost anything can be
grilled-fruits, like pineapple and
peaches, and salad greens, like radicchio
and escarole. Pizza and flatbreads
crisp up nicely when placed on a preheated
pizza stone on the grill.
When using your grill, pivot from
barbeque. Breakfast anyone? Sausage
sizzles, toasted bread takes on a more
intense flavor, and popping eggs into the
hollows of a greased muffin tin becomes
a fun way to start the weekend. Have
you ever thought of baking cookies on
a grill? How about a cake, a pie, or muffins?
Use your grill like an oven. For me,
this is especially handy at holiday time,
because it frees up oven space in my
kitchen. Thanksgiving turkey is moist
and bronzed-looking when spatchcocked
and slow-cooked on a grill.
Using a seasoned cast iron pan is
one of my favorite grilling techniques,
especially with fatty types of meat like
hamburgers, spareribs, and steak. When
these meats are placed directly on the
grate, fat dripping down and hitting the
floor of the grill may cause flare-ups that
can ruin the food; some research has
shown that these intense bursts of flame
increase the risk of carcinogens in the
food. Another tip: Use a grill brush regularly
to thoroughly remove stuck-on bits
of food from the grates and to prevent
built-up grease fires.
Hamburgers cooked in a cast iron pan
get the desired smokey flavor without
unwanted flare-ups. To achieve the grill
marks we all love, transfer the burgers

from the pan directly to the grill for the
last few minutes of cooking. Do the same
with poultry. For seafood, cook scallops
in the pan until a nice crust has formed.
And for firm fish like salmon, add it to
the pan skin-side down, then flip it over
and cook the other side until the internal
temperature is between 140°F and 145°F.
Transfer it to the grill for a few minutes
until grill marks appear, but do not overcook
it.
This summer, take your grilling from
good to great! NHH
