Grilling with Olive Oil
May 21, 2013
Barbequing and Olive Oil go hand in hand, so we figured we’d share some grilling tips to ensure you keep your title of Grill-Master this summer:
Oil the grill after it’s hot and right before you place the food on the grate to prevent food from sticking.
Put olive oil in a spray bottle and use it for misting foods as they grill. The misted oil creates a nice glaze and helps keep food moist.
Squeeze lemons, limes and oranges over grilled meat, seafood and vegetables and then finish the dish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Wrap veggies in aluminum foil packets to keep them moist, and it makes for a super easy clean up.
Try tying together a bunch of fresh rosemary or thyme to make a brush for basting your meats with olive oil as they grill. We suggest Lucero’s most robust olive oil, Anthony’s Blend.
Lastly, while we encourage the use of olive oil, be careful that you never put food dripping with oil on the grill in order to avoid flare ups. If you want more after grilling simply drizzle a little more on after cooking!
