These three foods are transformed when you grill them instead of cooking them the traditional way. Next time you’re grilling at your Greensboro apartments, toss these foods onto the grill with whatever else you’re grilling. You’ll be amazed at the results.
1. Corn on the Cob
You’ve probably eaten your share of corn on the cob. Traditionally, corn on the cob is boiled. You bring it home, remove the husk and place it in a large pot of boiling water for 20 minutes or so. And in fairness, corn on the cob made this way is pretty tasty. But this summer, try grilling it instead.
To do: Instead of removing the entire husk, just clean it up a bit. Use scissors to cut off the hairy ends, and break some of the stalk off if it’s too long. Next, peel away some of the layers, but not all. Leave about two or three thin layers of husk around the cob. Now, just toss it on the grill. When you grill corn on the cob this way, you don’t need to use foil. After 15 or 20 minutes, your corn on the cob will be ready.
Poached salmon is a delicious and nutritious delicacy. It’s easy to make in your apartments in Greensboro with a big skillet, water and a hint of lemon. Add some tartar sauce to the finished dish and you’re all set.
But you can also grill salmon and get a much richer flavor. To do: Invest in a stainless steel fish basket for grilling. Coat the basket with grapeseed oil or another oil appropriate for high heat. Lay your salmon in the basket and place directly on the grill for about 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon filet. You’ll get an intense smoky flavor combined with the awesome flavor of the salmon.
3. Mixed Vegetables
If you’ve ever struggled with eating your minimum daily requirement of vegetables, you’ll appreciate this last tip. Chopping up vegetables and boiling them results in a bland side dish. But grilled mixed vegetables is something that you’ll want to have with every meal. To do: Rough chop a selection of peppers, onions and carrots. Toss them with grapeseed oil and salt and pepper. Place them in a sleeve of aluminum foil. Grill for 15 minutes or until tender. Yum!
