  • Grilling With Olive Oil

    May 21, 2013

     

     

    Barbeque Grilling and Olive Oil go hand in hand. Enjoy the
    Lucero grilling tips and keep your Grill-Master title intact!
     

     

    Tip  Number 1, Oil The Grill

     

    Oil the grill after it’s hot and right before you place the food on the

    grate to prevent food from sticking.

     

     

    Tip Number 2, Grilling With Citrus

     

    Squeeze lemons, limes and oranges over grilled meat, seafood and

    vegetables and then finish the dish with a drizzle of extra virgin

    olive oil. Add citrus to an  olive oil marinade...and let the meat

    soak in it.

     

     

    Tip Number 3, Grilling With Olive Oil

     

     

    Put olive oil in a spray bottle (non aerosol mister) and use it for

    misting  foods as they grill.  The misted oil creates a nice glaze and

    helps keep food moist. 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!

    Tip Number 4, Grilling Veggies In Foil

     

    Wrap veggies in aluminum foil packets to keep them moist, and it

    makes for a super easy clean up.

     

     

    Tip Number 5, Grilling With An Herb Brush

     

     

    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 a robust intensity extra virgin olive oil like

    Lucero Barnea Extra Vigin Olive Oil.

    or this single variety,

    Lucero Taggiasca Extra Virgin Olive Oil

     

     

    Make your own herb brush. Instructions here: Jamie Oliver

     

    For a great marinade, try one of our flavored extra virgin olive oils;
