smokey seafood goodness

smokey seafood goodness

Paella on the grill deemed a success! Unfortunately, we don't own a pan big enough for such a monster-sized recipe so we had to cut back a little on all the amounts. I forewent the clams and mussels (as this was a midwest endeavor), adding scallops instead, and cutting the shrimp and lobster by half. It still managed to feed seven of us, but we supplemented it with salad and the goodies that Weetatertot brought along. She's graciously sharing her recipe for Lemon Ricotta Tart at her blog! Woo hoo!! Keife and Lindsay rounded out the meal with a big batch of sangria! Bellies were happy.

Glenn took this shot as I was staying busy bouncing from kitchen to grill. There's a lot of "cook 6 minutes, then add..." in paella. Hamburgers are definitely easier. We'll go that route the 4th of July. And probably 3-4 times until then. It is officially grilling season, you know.
