Well, isn’t that just like New Hampshire? In case you haven’t heard, it snowed on Mother’s Day. Yes, snow in May on Mother’s Day. Now, here it is a few days later and we’re having a heat wave and fighting the black flies. I thought maybe the snow would do them in. It didn’t.
If you haven’t dusted off the grill and rolled it out of the garage and onto terrace or deck, then all I can ask is, “why not?” Get to it! The summer weather is about to give way to spring but you can still get grilling this weekend. You will need to swat a few flies but it will be worth it.
Start with a glass of wine and a delicious Pissaladière. Served warm or at room temperature, you can bake it in advance or prep in advance and pop it in the oven as soon as your friends arrive.
On to the main course! Why not take your wine and Pissaladière outside, watch the sun go down and grill up some shrimp? They are quick and easy and everyone likes them. Grilled shrimp will be delicious with … Tarragon Aioli. I like to serve the shrimp with Grilled Balsamic Vegetables … especially asparagus.
Unless, you’d like to take your dinner international! From your French appetizer move on to a Mexican main dish with my Grilled Shrimp Salsa de Cacahuate y Chile de Arbol – a spicy peanut sauce. Serve the shrimp with steamed rice and Grilled Zucchini. Or go down under and try my Piri Piri Shrimp in Lettuce Wraps.
Have a great weekend! Bon appétit!
