It's warming outside and summer is here, which means it's time to have awith your closest friends and family. Hot dogs and burgers are a matter of course, but what about BBQ chicken, shrimp and salmon?
If you have ever cooked this lean meat on a grill, you know that they are more prone to sticking than your greasy meat. You can use non-stick spray, but too much can leave a sticky residue behind, and what if you're outside anyway? A quick dip into the vegetable stock is all you need to gut your fish or chicken.
How to make your grill stale
If you forget to pick up non-stick spray at the store, do not worry. If you want to prevent food from sticking to the grilles of your grill, all you need is a potato and a fork. And so goes:
- Heat the grill to the desired temperature.
- Cut a potato in half.
- Spit the end of the potato with a fork with two prongs (a fork works just as well), leaving the inside of the potato free.
- Lift the lid onto the grill and rub the exposed center of the potato on the griddle. Be sure to cover the entire cooking surface.
This process releases the starch in the potato and creates a barrier between the bars and the food.
If you do not have a potato on hand, it will also work half an onion or lemon. Keep in mind, however, that this will have an obvious effect on the taste of the food.
Consider this as your cooking guide like a pro at your next BBQ.
