Jerked Spice Shrimp
This recipe looks deceptive but unlike the plot points in many of the nominated films and series this year, this recipe isn’t too complex. However as with the nominated films and series, it leaves an impactful and lasting impression, so we highly recommend serving this easy and tasty meal for your viewing party. For winter grilling – use your broiler instead (or an indoor stove-top grill if you have one). See full recipe here
Polenta With Vegetable Ragout
Make it a Polenta Party! This fun and casual, laid-back recipe would be dampened a bit if you had to be stirring polenta at the stove right up until the moment you served it, right? Fortunately there is a better way. Two hours before the guests arrive start the polenta. See full recipe here
Watermelon, Prosciutto and Manchego Skewers
These skewers are bound to be the stars of the night! Succulent watermelon, sharp Manchego cheese (Spain’s most famous cheese, so named because it originally was made only from the milk of Manchengo sheep that grazed on the plains of La Mancha. It’s a rich, golden, delicious cheese that can be found in larger gourmet markets) and salty prosciutto. Feel free to subsitute the cheese for a fun quick skewer thats bound to please.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 small seedless watermelon
- 1 small wedge Manchego cheese
- 3 ounces thinly-sliced prosciutto
- Extra-virgin olive oil and freshly ground black pepper
Cut the melon off the rind and cut into bite-sized cubes. Trim the rind off the cheese and cut into bite-sized cubes. Cut the prosciutto into thin strips and roll the pieces into a folded shape.
Assemble the stacks: Layer a cube of watermelon on a cutting board, place a cube of cheese on top, followed by a piece of prosciutto. Carefully insert a wooden pick or skewer to secure. Drizzle over a little olive oil over each skewer and season with a little pepper.
