The griller's guide to meat and seafood
The sun is shining, the heat is rising, and the smell of
grilled meat wafting over the fence is making our mouths
water-it's official, summer is here! Time to get ready for
another season of simple and delicious suppers al fresco. If
you're planning to make meat or seafood the centrepiece of your
next outdoor feast, it's crucial to choose a high-quality
product. To help you narrow down your options, we've put together
a handy guide to our favourites that will add a little
Mediterranean flair to your next barbecue!
Want to cut out the fuss of prep work? Your Adonis market has a
wide selection of marinated meats
to choose from. Check out our must-haves for putting together a
delicious summer meal in no time flat. Since they're ready to cook,
just throw them on the grill, then serve with grilled vegetables,
rice or a vitamin-packed salad for a perfect meal to enjoy under
the sun with your favourite people. From shish-taouk to kefta to
filet mignon, we've got something for everyone. You'll also love
our Portuguese, tandoori and souvlaki marinades. Try them in a pita
sandwich for an instant lunch upgrade!
Thoroughly drain your marinated meat before placing on the
grill to avoid flare ups.
For professional-looking crosshatch grill marks, oil your
grill, preheat at high heat, then place your meat on the grill and
rotate 90 degrees once during cooking.
A meat lover's paradise
If you'd rather let the flavour of the meat shine through without
any distractions, head to the Adonis butcher counter, where you'll
find tons of cuts you can
cook as-is or season to your taste. Chicken, filet mignon, European
sausages, lamb, veal-you name it, we have it. Whatever your choice,
once it's grilled to perfection, you'll feel like a true grill
For best results, and to avoid rare steaks that are still
cold inside, pull your meat out of the fridge about 30 minutes
before cooking to let it come to room temperature.
After your meat is off the grill, don't forget to let it rest
before cutting! This helps the heat distribute evenly and keeps the
juices in for tender, juicy, perfectly cooked meat!
Surf (hold the turf)
Fish and seafood
are also great options for a meal fit for a king. Shrimp skewers
and salmon steaks cook up beautifully on the grill. Feeling bold?
Change things up with lobster, gilthead seabream or even shrimp and
Use a fish basket for your fish and seafood to keep the
delicate flesh intact and prevent sticking.
Love lemon? Try cooking your fish on a bed of lemon slices.
It makes cooking a little bit easier, plus your fish will take on a
bright citrus flavour and stay nice and juicy. No more dry salmon!
Shrimp, lobster and other crustaceans are much more
flavourful when cooked with their shells intact.
