Simple, fast, and extraordinarily versatile, grilling is the cooking method for today. Almost everything can be prepared on the grill, from shrimp to swordfish, portobellos to polenta. And no wonder: the clear, fresh flavors we love are preserved, fewer added oils are required, and food actually loses fat
as it cooks.
In Italian Grilling, Jean Galton has created more than 70 delicious traditional and new recipes for soups and salads, main dishes, marinades and dressings, and even desserts that combine ease and versatility with the high-flavor, low-fat emphasis we all want. Imagine a vibrant grilled sweet red pepper soup with shrimp; grilled shrimp with a basil mayonnaise; spicy chicken breasts with lemon; succulent baby lamb chops; grilled peaches with sweet ricotta.
In these recipes, the aromatic ingredients that are the essence of Italian cooking--olive oil, basil, garlic, lemons, rosemary, oregano, and thyme--enhance everything from artichokes to crispy pizzas and bruschettas. These are mouthwatering dishes you'll want to make throughout the year.show more
