Not all of us are lucky enough to have access to a tandoor oven, so a good old barbecue will have to do the trick today. If you DO have access to a tandoor oven, we are very jealous and spiteful and don’t particularly feel like dealing with you and your “fancy tandoor oven” because you’re “better than us” and prefer to have “authentically” cooked naan bread.
Radha knocked it out of the park this year by treating the Calgary North staff to her homemade pizza. She made her own dough, and her own sauce, and then grilled it all to cheesey perfection on the Broil King Keg. Needless to say, Friday afternoon was pretty unproductive around here, as we were all in a heavenly pizza coma.
Whip up a batch of this goodness for all of your chicken, pork, and saucy needs. It’s especially good on a pulled pork sandwich, just sayin’.
The Viking Burger: a construction of Danish awesomeness. Wherein, we craftily combine the power of the Danish meatball (frikadeller) with slithery, ‘pickly’ red cabbage…
“Ohhh, yeah. That’s a nice hunk o’ brisket you’ve got there.” See? That’ll be the reaction you’ll get when you christen your grill for the Spring and cook up some tender, flavourful, spiced brisket. Serve on its own, or on some nice soft buns (he he… we said “soft buns”) with a heaping scoop of coleslaw. Also, beer. You’ll definitely want a beer. Don’t necessarily count on your neighbourhood Giganto-grocery to have brisket in stock. Better to call your local butcher. In Calgary there are lots of great butchers – try Master Meats if you’re near our North store. In Oakville, I’d head over to Florence Meats.
You can’t go wrong with grilled fish tacos. Well, surely you could, but they’re pretty damn easy, so you should be good. These little buggers are so full of flavour you won’t know what hit you. They’re spicy, sweet, citrusy… all the things you could ever ask for in a fish taco, so you better get cookin’, friend, you’re gonna love them.
Damn, tilapia, you tasty. Especially when you’re gently laid down on a bed of crispy, garlicky kale, and topped off with some citrusy tomatoes, creamy avocado, and crunchy red onion. Ohhh yeah. We could only love you more if you cooked us the meal yourself – but that would just be cruel, so we’ll settle for making it on our own.
