(Blog post written for “SOS Shells Co.”)
It has slowly crept up to that time of the year where the barbecue becomes the primary mode of food preparation. Memorial Day hot dogs and hamburgers to Father’s day celebratory steak and shrimp; I am constantly looking for new, unique items to throw on the grill. Father’s Day Barbecue grilling just got a whole lot easier this year with the use of my new SOS Shells (www.sosshells.com).
The shells are Oyster shaped, but unlike real oysters are far more sanitary and reusable. They can be used on the grill or in the oven, from hot dishes to cold deserts. On the grill, the meat, poultry or seafood get a char-grilled flavor from the flames while sautéing within the pan. It allows for great versatility and creativity for every chef behind the grill.
For Memorial Day I put my new SOS Shells to great use on a southern inspired seafood dish. To start I took 1 cup of melted butter and mixed it with 6 tablespoons of fresh minced of garlic. Then pour in 4 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, a sprig of basil and a teaspoon of white pepper. To finish the sauce add a dash of Old Bay, salt and pepper. Next, add 2 tablespoons of the herb and lemon infused butter to each SOS Shell. Lay several shrimp and bay scallops in each shell and place on the barbecue.
The flames from the BBQ shoot up and char-grill the shrimp as the sauce deliciously oozes over. The shells allow for the seafood to be heated and cooked through both grilling and traditional thermal conduction. As the shrimp and scallops start cooking add a dash of paprika and a sprig of parsley over the top of each shell. The dish can be finished with cheese or without as pictured here. Overall the seafood tastes as delicious as it looks and it was all made possible my this innovative kitchen product. Order yours today on Amazon at the link here: http://goo.gl/xrFuq4
