Just a quick post. Here's a sweet chili sauce for grilled shrimp that I threw together last night after Trevor's football practice (translated as dinner at 9:00PM on a school night).
Sweet Asian Chili Sauce
Source: My fridge
1/2 cup Sweet Chili Sauce
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp mirin (sub agave nectar or honey)
1 Tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
1 tsp minced ginger
1 tsp fish sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
(add 1 tsp of Sriracha only if you want heat)
Mix in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes.
I used it on shrimp kabobs that were seasoned with Dizzy Pig Tsunami Spin rub (Dizzy Pig rubs ROCK).
Grilled them 2-3 minutes and flipped them. I glazed the top. Grilled them another 2-3 minutes and flipped, glazing the top. Remove and serve with reserved sauce.
Home Based Tandoor
Have you ever cooked on a tandoor?
NO! Not Jeffrey Tambor, the famed actor who has been in everything from M*A*S*H to Arrested Development to The Hangover.
A TANDOOR – which is the Middle Eastern cousin of the kamado, like the Big Green Egg.
Our good friend, Robyn Lindars of GrillGrrrl.com recently got to cook on a Homdoor – a tandoor style grill for the home. Check out her video. (I'm extremely jealous of her high end video production crew!)
[Standard Disclaimer] We pay full price for our Dizzy Pig Rubs. I've never touched a Homdoor. Jeffrey Tombor is funny but his naan bread sucks. Robyn paid us $20,000 USD to post this. Just kidding about Robyn. And maybe Jeffrey. His naan might not be bad.
