Al - THE BBQ SHOP

Grilled Artichoke and Spinach Dip with Pita Wedges

2 cans (14 ounces each) artichoke hearts, drained
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided, plus more for brushing on the pita
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
2 pounds frozen chopped spinach, drained well
1 pint heavy cream
1 pint sour cream
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided

8 pita rounds

1. Thread the artichoke hearts onto skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent burning). Lightly brush the artichokes with some of the oil and then season with salt and pepper. Grill over direct medium heat (350°F to 450°F), with the lid closed as much as possible, until golden brown, about 6 minutes, turning once.

2. In a large sauté pan, warm the remaining oil and then sauté the garlic, shallots, and onion. Rough chop the artichokes and add them to the pan. Add the spinach. Fold in the cream, sour cream, and 1 cup of the cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Place in a fireproof dish or heavy-duty aluminum pan and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of cheese. Grill over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, for 20 to 25 minutes until the dip is heated through.

3. Brush pita rounds with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill briefly over direct heat to warm them, about 1 to 2 minutes. Cut into wedges.

4. Garnish the dip with sour cream and chopped fresh tomato, if desired. Serve with the pita wedges.

Grilled Pizza

Grilled Pizza

1 lb store bought pizza dough
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
1 zucchini, shredded 8 oz no-salt-added tomato sauce1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
4 scallions, sliced

Cooking pizza on the grill gives it some of the tantalizing smokiness of pizza baked in a wood-fired or brick pizza oven. Experiment with other toppings, such as mushrooms, sliced onions, or roasted bell peppers - just grill them (on the warming rack coated with cooking oil) before browning the pizza dough.

In a small bowl, combine the tomato sauce, basil, oregano, and hot pepper sauce. Set aside. In another small bowl, combine the zucchini and salt and let stand for 10 minutes. With your hands, squeeze the zucchini dry and set it aside. Meanwhile, when ready to cook, spray the grids with cooking oil. Then preheat the grill to a medium heat.

Roll the dough out on a floured surface to an 11-inch circle or rectangle. Place the dough on an inverted baking sheet sprinkled with flour. Slide the dough onto the grids and grill for 2 - 3 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom. Using two spatulas, flip the dough. Spread the reserved tomato sauce evenly over the dough. Sprinkle the zucchini, mozzarella, corn, and scallions on top and grill, covered, for 3 - 4 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Makes 4 servings

Bacon-Wrapped Scallop & Salmon Skewers



8 Slices of bacon, about 1/2 lb (250g) cut into 3" lengths
1 lb (500g) skinless salmon fillets, about 1" thick
1 lb sea scallops (500g)
lemon wedges
1/4 cup 60 ml) olive oil
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped fresh sage or 1 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Blanching bacon - boiling it briefly in water - removes some of its fat and salt and tames its smoky flavor. Fill a saucepan two-thirds full with water and bring to a boil over high heat using your side burner. Add the bacon and blanch for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Set aside. Run your fingers over the salmon fillets to detect any errant bones; remove and discard any bones you find. Cut the salmon into 1-inch cubes. If the small, flat muscle, or "foot", is still attached to the sides of each scallop, use your fingers or a small, sharp knife to remove and discard it. Place the scallops in a bowl with the salmon and add the olive oil, lemon juice, sage, salt and pepper. Toss to combine and coat the fish. Cover and refrigerate, tossing once or twice, for about 30 minutes. Preheat the grill to medium. Remove the scallops and salmon from the marinade; reserve the marinade. Wrap a piece of bacon around each scallop and each piece of salmon. Alternate the bacon-wrapped scallops and salmon on 4 - 6 skewers. Arrange the skewers on the rack. Grill, turning frequently and brushing two or three times during the first 4 minutes of cooking with the reserved marinade, until the bacon is lightly browned and sizzling and thescallops and salmon are just opaque throughout, about 8 minutes total. To serve, transfer to a warmed platter and serve at once with lemon wedges Makes 4 - 6 servings.
