Today was a milestone at our house...or rather we got the key to our new place-which is a major milestone. Tomorrow we get the phone and next week, all our STUFF will arrive. I can't wait. Our place is wonderful and I'll be going on and on about it soon enough. The one drawback...no place to barbecue. We're on the third floor of a lovely converted convent and there are no balconies. This will be a challenge given that in Toronto we barbecued even in the winter.
No worries...I'll be using my trusty grill pan (as soon as it arrives) and perhaps my next kitchen toy will be an indoor grill. I did a practice run searing tuna and the verdict was....well...everyone liked it so much they licked the plate clean and asked for seconds. No one seemed to notice that it wasn't barbecued.
I served it over mashed sweet potatoes seasoned with thyme. The sweetness will cut the spice of the sauce and the mash-factor will absorb it. Since the tuna & shrimp marinade had Kalyn's favorite herb - cilantro, I thought I'd share it with Weekend Herb Blogging. What are your suggestions for indoor grilling.
