Well, I FINALLY was able to come home to Kelowna to see all the ones I LOOOVEEEE!! And with Father’s Day coming up, my Papa definitely deserved a home cooked dinner from his favourite daugher!!!!! Best Father’s Day recipe: LOW COUNTRY GRILL! It was sooo delicious, and all the flavours are amazing together.
This might be the easiest yet the most impressive recipe you will EVER try. Its perfect for a low stress dinner for dad that also says, hey DAD, I’m pretty talented and obviously the best lol!!!!
1/2 cup of salted butter
1/4 cup of white wine
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 heaping tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning
3 large sprigs of fresh thyme
Grill Ingredients (quantities can really be adjusted to taste… the outcome isn’t dependant on the quantities below so for example if you LOVE scallops add more or if you love sausage you can add more of that too!)
3 cups of fresh uncooked mussels (or clams or both!)
2 cups of diced uncooked chorizo sausage
3 ears of corn cut into 2-3 inch sections (pre boil these until cooked but firm)
2 cups of mini potatoes (pre boil these until cooked but firm)
3 cups of large uncooked fresh prawns
2 cups of fresh uncooked scallops
Melt butter & garlic on medium until butter starts to slowly bubble (do not let it brown) Add wine, thyme and then add old bay seasoning. Set aside.
IN a LARGE sealable container, toss ALL of the grill ingredients and pour 3/4 of your marinade in. Seal the container and toss it around a bit to ensure all liquid touches all the tasty seafood. Let sit for about 1-2 hours. THE KEY to this recipe is a GRILL BASKET – i purchased 2 of them so that I could fit all of the ingredients on the grill at once. (I got mine at Homesense/Homegoods but I have also seen these at Target, Canadian Tire & Walmart)
Set the BBQ to Medium/High – transfer recipe to grill baskets and grill&Toss until clams/mussles open up and corn & sausage starts to brown!
Serve in an oversized serving dish, pour remaining butter mixture & SERVE! (we served ours with a little garlic toast!)
LOVE YOU DAD!!!!! HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO ALL THE DADS OUT THERE!!!
