ROSEMARY IS THY NAME-ALA FILLETS & A LONE SQUID

Ok so i had a full on supply of herbs & its after a long time so we decided to go with the rosemary here.

We love our herbs as much as we do a prawn curry & am so eager to experiment with all these herbs.
CHIVES & PEPPERS ALL DRESSED TO GARNISH


Due to a not very good market supply here,most resorts,which do use herbs in abundance,tend their own on their vast lawns & thats the best way to have a regular supply in ur own kitchen.

THE MARINADE WELL RUBBED & PUSHED THRU THE GASHES TOO
And yeah there were chicken fillets for dinner ,so coudn go wrong with an accompaniment of grilled toms & tangy dressing(see recipe below).
And with the flavoursome rosemary-now aint that a lovely name-u cant go wrong and so here i am this week at ---the weekend herb blogging ----


I'd love to have a tandoor coal kinda grill & am working on a temp one but for now its a top fire griller which is quite good(& fast too,keeps me on my feet not to burn toast in the mornings) & yeah would love a griddle pan that'll leaves those lovely criss-cross or horizantal lines on ur grilled catch of the day.

LOADS OF ROSEMARY -SO FRAGRANT & AROMATIC
Rosemary on Foodista
This recipe is actually my little bros,which was born when he asked a chef to grill chicken this way for him when he was at a resort & its totally his recipe-a family of foodies couldn get better for me!!!!
Am happy to join in my second weekend of weekend herb blogging ie about cooking with herbs & plants that scream different-i so like the concept,this was originally started byby Kalynskitchen around 4 years back and now is hosted by Haalo of Cook (Almost) Anything At Least Once.



marinade per 2 fillets

(clean the fillets well with salt & lime & cut a few gashes & prick all over and marinate under refrigeration with a mix of all the below in a glass marinating bowl-rub well into fillets & in the gashes too)
1 onion garlic-crushed
1loads of fresh rosemary-rubbed to release aromatic flavouring
a good drizzle of honey
whole pepper,crushed- to taste
salt to taste

GRILLED TO PERFECTION WITHOUT A DROP OF OIL
1. Marinate for a few hours & grill till done. Baste with olive oil if u want to or even butter(yummy)

SWEETT & TANGY-GORGEOUSLY GRILLED TOMS
Serve with grilled tomatoes(below)

CHOPPED CHIVES READY TO GARNISH THE TOMS
GRILLED TOMATOES
1.Cut a few tomatoes into half and placecut side up in a baking dish.
Season with salt & garlic (and pepper or chilli,optional)& a teeny weenny pinch of sugar on each one(brings out their sweetness & these were really juicy yummy cherry red toms-but totally optional)
2.Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil & grill till done(as preferred-a little grilled or well browned)

CHIVES,PEPPERS & THE SWEET & TANGY DRESSING WITH STEAMED GREEN PEAS
3.DRESSING for THE GRILLED TOMS
Toss together cut smoked fresh de-seeded red chilli(or a sweet red chilli sauce)lime juice,honey/sugar,toddy vinegar,(balsamic or white vinegar is fine too),extravirgin olive oil(a wee bit)& chives, with green peas and beans(STEAMED) & pour over the tomatoes in the serving dish with all juices of the toms.

  5. I love the thought of restaurants growing their own herbs. Every winter I wish I lived somewhere that I could grow them year round. All this looks good, but I'm really drooling over the grilled tomatoes!
