#HotSummerEats: Sweet Garlic Squid #sponsor


Here we are at day two of my Hot Summer Eats event. As promised, I will be sharing a grilled recipe, a non-lettuce salad, and/or a cocktail. So, for the grilled offering today, here's my recipe for marinated squid...with a little help from one of our event sponsors: T.Lish. T.Lish's Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette was the perfect match for some fresh, pan-grilled squid. This is so simple and so tasty.


Ingredients


Procedure
Clean the squid by removing the beak, the pen, and the innards. I do it in a bowl of cool water, but clean it wherever you wish.


Drain the water when you're finished. Pour enough vinaigrette into to the bowl to cover the squid. Agitate with your hands or a spoon. Let stand for at least 10 minutes. Cook in a grill-pan or over coals.


The squid is done when it is just opaque; don't cook it too long or it will get rubbery. Place the cooked squid in a shallow bowl and pour enough vinaigrette over the top to cover the squid. Let stand for at least 10 or 15 minutes.


Serve at room temperature.


Thanks, T.Lish* - just one of our #HotSummerEats sponsors - for ingredients used in this recipe. You can find T.Lish: on the web, on facebook, on twitter, on instagram, and on pinterest.


*Full Disclosure: I received a bottle of Sweet Garlic Vinaigrette from T.Lish for participating in #HotSummerEats. Feel free to use whatever garlic dressing you have on-hand. I received no additional compensation for this post; all comments are 100% accurate and 100% my own.

  1. I can't tell you how much I love the T-Lish products or at least the two I have tried thus far. I haven't gotten to the Chipotle dressing yet.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
