"One of the biggest grilling challenges is giving the meat time to cook through before the outside gets too charred."

One of the biggest grilling challenges is giving the meat time to cook through before the outside gets too charred. Hold off on applying the Lemon Pepper Glaze until the end to give chicken wings time to cook without burning. You can chill the chicken for several hours between steps, so this is an easy one to prep in the morning and finish on the grill later in the day. You can easily switch up this recipe with your favorite Lawry’s sauces and seasoning blends.

Buttermilkwings_8-copyButtermilkwings_8-copy

Prep Time: 45 mins | Total Time: 30 mins | Serves 10

Ingredients:
2 cups buttermilk, more as needed
1 tablespoon hot sauce
2 tablespoons Lawry's Seasoned Salt
3 lemons
4 lbs. whole chicken wings
¼ cup canola oil, plus more for the grill
1 tablespoon Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
1 cup Lawry's Lemon Pepper Marinade with Lemon Juice
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (or olive oil)
Fresh Italian parsley, chopped (optional garnish)

Buttermilkwings_1Buttermilkwings_1

In a large mixing bowl, whisk buttermilk, hot sauce and Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. Add the juice and zest of 1 lemon. Submerge the wings and toss to coat in the buttermilk mixture.

Buttermilkwings_2-copyButtermilkwings_2-copy

Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Drain wings from buttermilk, pat dry with paper towels and discard buttermilk. Toss wings with canola oil, zest of 2 lemons, Lawry’s Garlic Salt, smoked paprika and cracked black pepper. The wings can be grilled right away, or covered and returned to the fridge until needed (up to one day).

Buttermilkwings_3-copyButtermilkwings_3-copy

Prepare a grill for indirect or medium heat, aiming for 325°F. If you’re using a charcoal grill, you can add some wood chips for additional smoky flavor. Brush the grates with oil. Arrange the wings skin-down on the cooler side of the grill.

Buttermilkwings_6-copyButtermilkwings_6-copy

Cover grill and let wings cook about 10 minutes. Use tongs to check on the wings, moving any that may be over a hot spot and cooking too rapidly. Cover the grill and cook for another 20 to 30 minutes, until the thickest part of the wing registers at least 165°F on meat thermometer. Halve the 2 zested lemons, brush with oil and grill them with the wings for the last 15 minutes. (To get a little bit of char at the end, you can increase the grill temp or move wings to a hotter part of the grill.)

Buttermilkwings_7-copyButtermilkwings_7-copy

For the glaze, warm Lawry’s Lemon Pepper Marinade and whisk in the butter until melted. Coat wings with glaze using a silicone basting brush. Flip wings over and apply another coating of glaze. Cook for a minute or two, being careful not to let the wings burn. Transfer wings to a serving platter and squeeze with the charred lemon. Garnish with parsley and serve hot!

Angela's Quick & Easy: Lawry's Buttermilk Ranch

As a busy mom and private chef, I'm always looking for ways to save time and money in the kitchen. I like creating my own creamy salad dressings, but I often end up with more than I really need. One day I realized that the sauce I use for my potato salads and pasta salads was almost the same as what I make for a homemade ranch dressing. And a lightbulb went off. So I tweaked the ranch dressing recipe to be versatile for a range of dishes that I make. Now I only have to remember one base recipe that can be easily modified for what I have to work with that day.

"When I'm on the go, the less I need to think about the better!"

Ranch5_620x635Ranch5_620x635

"When I'm on the go, the less I need to think about the better!"

When I'm on the go, the less I need to think about the better! My Lawry’s Buttermilk Ranch Dressing has come in handy as a dip for appetizer platters, tossing with salads and as a flavorful secret ingredient in deviled eggs–often all in the same day! Using Lawry’s Seasoned Salt which is flavored with garlic, spices and herbs makes it even easier to accommodate a variety of recipes. The recipe works well with your favorite mayo, whether store bought or homemade (I recommend using a pasteurized store bought mayo if you don't plan on using the whole batch of dressing within a couple days.) When you make the dressing, just use as little or as much buttermilk as you need to get to the desired consistency. I use less for dips and more for pourable sauce. My favorite combination of herbs to use is fresh dill, tarragon, parsley and basil for a traditional ranch flavor. One batch of my Lawry’s Buttermilk Ranch Dressing is enough to try all three of the recipes below, but have fun coming up with your own fun ways to use it!

Ranch4_620x635Ranch4_620x635

Prep Time: 15 mins | Total Time: 45 mins | Makes about 2 cups

1 cup mayo
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk plus more as needed
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tsp lemon juice, plus zest
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 small shallot, minced
1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped mixed herbs (such as dill, tarragon, parsley, basil)

In a large mixing bowl, combine the mayo, sour cream and enough buttermilk to reach the desired consistency (more for a pourable dressing; less for a thicker dip).
Add the mustard, lemon juice, zest of one lemon, celery seeds, shallot, seasoned salt and black pepper.
Finally, stir in the chopped herbs. Chill for 30 minutes to let flavors meld before serving.

Bacon Ranch Chicken Salad

Growing up, my least favorite salad dressing was ranch. That all changed once I learned how to make it myself. The creamy tang and fresh herb flavors in homemade buttermilk ranch dressing is so refreshing over greens and veggies. When I'm working from home, a big salad like this is a staple for lunch and something my 2-year-old daughter enjoys sharing with me. It also makes a great dinner on weekends. I use whatever leftover protein and veggie scraps I have in the fridge to keep things quick and easy.

Ranch_620x635Ranch_620x635

Prep Time: 30 mins | Total Time: 30 mins | Serves 1-2

2 strips bacon
2 cups mixed lettuce greens
1/4 cup Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, more as needed
1/2 cup chopped rotisserie chicken
1 boiled egg, sliced
1/2 avocado, diced
2 tablespoons diced sweet onion
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
Black pepper

Add bacon to an unheated skillet. Heat skillet to medium high; cook bacon until crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and crumble bacon once cooled.
Meanwhile, in a large serving bowl, toss the lettuce with a tablespoon of dressing to lightly coat. Top with chicken, egg, avocado, onion and tomatoes. Season lightly with seasoned salt and black pepper. Drizzle with remaining dressing and crumbled bacon.

PastaSalad_620x635PastaSalad_620x635

Tuna Pasta Salad

Creamy pasta salads are perfect for picnics and barbecues. I've tossed this one with everything from diced chicken to roasted vegetables, but tuna is my son's favorite. In the summer, this same recipe transforms into an upscale lobster and fresh corn pasta salad, so it's pretty versatile! The flavor gets better if you give the pasta a chance to chill and absorb the dressing, so make it ahead of time if you can.

Ranch3_620x635Ranch3_620x635

Prep Time: 20 mins | Total Time: 1 hour | Serves 4

2 cups dry macaroni noodles
1 celery stalk, finely diced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 cup Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, more as needed
1 can solid light tuna packed in water, drained
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt, or to taste

In salted water, boil the pasta per package directions for "al dente" texture; about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta in a colander, rinsing with cool water. Shake off excess water and set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the celery, onions, peppers and 1/2 cup of dressing. Stir in the cooked noodles. Gently fold in the drained tuna, leaving some pieces in big chunks. Stir in the tomatoes. Season to taste with black pepper and seasoned salt.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld; add additional dressing if needed just before serving.

DeviledEggs_recipe_620x635DeviledEggs_recipe_620x635

Spicy Egg Salad Deviled Eggs

This is one of the easiest deviled eggs recipes I learned to make, inspired by a brunch appetizer I enjoyed at a local restaurant. My traditional recipe requires a smooth yolk filling and utilizes a piping bag. But in this version, extra egg whites are simply chopped finely and mashed with the yolks to make a chunky egg salad filling. I love the texture and flavor, plus it’s a great way to use the last of my homemade ranch dressing!

Prep Time: 30 mins | Total Time: 45 mins | Serves 6

6 extra large/jumbo eggs
1/4 cup Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, more as needed
2 teaspoons hot sauce, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
Finely chopped fresh chives (optional garnish)

Ranch3_620x635Ranch3_620x635

In a pot large enough to fit the eggs in a single layer, bring enough water to boil so that it will cover the eggs. Once water is boiling, carefully add the eggs. Boil 12 minutes for extra large eggs or 13 minutes for jumbo eggs.  Drain water from the pot, shaking the eggs back and forth to crack the shells slightly. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water and allow to cool completely. Once cool, peel the eggs under running water to help remove the shells. Pat dry.

Slice the boiled eggs in half and remove all the yolks. Set 6 of the egg whites aside. Finely dice the other 6 egg whites into tiny chunks. Add the chopped egg whites to a mixing bowl with the yolks, ranch dressing, hot sauce, salt and pepper, to taste. Use a fork to mash everything together until the yolk is evenly distributed and texture resembles egg salad. Add additional dressing only if needed, mixture should be moist but hold its shape.
Spoon the egg salad into the six remaining egg white halves. Garnish with chives and a pinch of black pepper. Serve immediately.

Amiyrah's Quick & Easy: Mediterranean Shrimp and Pasta

See Recipe
MainImageMainImage

ShrimpPasta_5ShrimpPasta_5

When I worked in a banquet hall many years ago, there was this one recipe that I always wanted to make at home. The patrons raved over how amazing “shrimp ala Pines” was, and I had to agree. It was the perfect blend of Mediterranean flavors- from the shrimp to the feta- with a little taste of sweetness that I assumed was honey. It was amazing! It’s been years since I’ve thought about that recipe, but that all changed when I had a craving for a quick shrimp recipe. It needed to be simple, delicious, and something the whole family would enjoy. This Mediterranean Shrimp and Pasta recipe is an homage to the original meal that made me so happy. For this easy meal, we used Lawry’s Herb & Garlic Marinade to bring the dish to life.

ShrimpPasta_2ShrimpPasta_2

Place shrimp in a bowl. Cover with ½ cup Lawry’s Herb & Garlic Marinade, and let marinate for 15 minutes.

Cook 1 pound of the pasta of your choice according to package directions (we chose penne). Drain and rinse; set aside.

Heat a large pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add chopped onions, and sauté until translucent. Add ground black pepper, crushed tomatoes, and 2 tablespoons of Lawry’s Herb and Garlic Marinade, stir together. (Yes! The marinade is working double duty for this recipe: as a marinade for the seafood, and as a seasoning for the tomato sauce.)

Add honey to sweeten the sauce. Cook sauce 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

ShrimpPasta_1ShrimpPasta_1

Add marinated shrimp into the bubbling sauce. Top with crumbled feta cheese, cover, and reduce the heat to low.

After 5 to 7 minutes, the shrimp will be perfectly cooked, and the sauce will taste so good, you won’t be able to believe it took less than 30 minutes to make this meal. Place some pasta in a bowl, top with your Mediterranean shrimp, and enjoy!

I’m telling you, your family is going to love this recipe.

Angela's Traditional Twist: Savory French Toast

Traditional Twist: French toast doesn’t have to be sweet. This savory version of eggy, custardy fried bread is flavored with Lawry’s Garlic Salt and freshly grated parmesan cheese.

FrenchToast2FrenchToast2

Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 15-20 mins | Serves 4

4 large eggs
¾ cup whole milk
¼ cup heavy cream
2 teaspoon Lawry’s Garlic Salt, or to taste
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
½ teaspoon black pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper
8 thick slices of day old bread (such as Challah, Brioche, French or good quality white sandwich bread)
Freshly grated parmesan cheese, as needed
Butter, as needed
Cooking oil, as needed (such as canola or grapeseed oil)

FrenchToast3FrenchToast3

Instructions:

Whisk together the eggs, milk and heavy cream until no streaks of egg remain. Stir in garlic salt, mustard, black pepper and cayenne.

Soak each slice of bread until it absorbs a good amount of the egg mixture, but not so much that it’s mushy or falling apart. Transfer the soaked bread to a cooking rack set over a baking sheet, allowing excess egg mixture to drip off. Grate parmesan cheese over the tops of the bread.

Meanwhile, preheat a large griddle or cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add a couple tablespoons of butter and a tablespoon of cooking oil, swirling to coat the bottom of the pan. Once sizzling, place bread parmesan-side down. Only cook as many slices of bread that will fit in the skillet comfortably at once, so you’ll probably need to work in batches. Grate parmesan cheese over the tops of the bread slices while they cook. After a couple minutes or when the bread is golden brown, flip and cook the other side. Once both sides are golden brown, transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Grate a dusting of cheese over the tops. Continue cooking the remaining slices in bread, adding butter and oil to the skillet in between batches as needed. If desired, the cooked French bread can be kept warm in an oven heated to 200° F until ready to serve.

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high. Place peppers and onions in skillet. Cook, stirring frequently for 5 to 7 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Add spinach, one cup at a time, until each batch is just wilted. Add black pepper and stir.

Remove salmon fillets from bowl, discard any remaining marinade, and nestle each fillet in between the vegetables. Each fillet should be placed in its own little “pocket” within the pan. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and let cook for 7 to 10 minutes or until salmon is cooked through.

Serve salmon and veggies over quinoa and enjoy.

In a large bowl, mix ground beef, Lawry’s Hawaiian Marinade, pineapple juice and black pepper. Be sure not to over-mix; just stir together until ingredients are combined. Use your hands if need be.

Form the mixture into 8 sausage shapes and thread onto skewers or chopsticks.

Heat outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium. Brush kabobs with olive oil.

Place kabobs on the grill and cook about 4 minutes per side, until meat is cooked through. They should be cooked after 7 to 8 minutes.

HawaiianBeefKabobs_11-copyHawaiianBeefKabobs_11-copy

Place kabobs on a plate and set aside.

Now grill the sliced pineapple and onions for 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Serve Hawaiian Beef Kabobs alone or with a hearty side salad. Enjoy!


MOM TIP #1: After forming kabobs, refrigerate them 15 to 20 minutes. This helps them stay intact on the grill.

MOM TIP #2: Don’t forget to grill those pineapple slices and onions! After kabobs are finished, use the residual heat to char the pineapple and onion slices.

Yvette's Traditional Twist: Ground Turkey Nachos

Nachos are a favorite in my home. We usually make nachos whenever we have grilled meat or shredded chicken leftovers. This recipe is made with ground turkey making these nachos simple to make any day of the week. The best part is they only take 30 minutes to make and I guarantee your family will love them.

Tacos4Tacos4

These nachos are topped with lots of delicious toppings and are super satisfying. When it comes to cheese for my nachos, I like to use white melty cheese such as Oaxaca, Quesadilla, or Monterey Jack, but in this recipe I couldn’t resist using pepper jack cheese for a kick of spice.

Prep: 15 mins | Cook Time: 30 mins | Serves 4-6
1 tablespoon olive oil
1⁄2 cup chopped white onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 teaspoon Lawry’s Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Corn tortilla chips
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
2 jalapeños, sliced
2 cups shredded cheese, such as pepper jack, Monterey jack, oaxaca or quesadilla

Yvette's Quick & Easy: Beef Short Ribs

Every once in a while I crave short ribs surrounded with potatoes, carrots and onions just like my grandma would make. On Sundays, she would make beef short ribs sprinkled with basic seasonings and cook them low and slow in an electric skillet. Then after Sunday mass, all my aunts, uncles and cousins would stop by for lunch. She would feed everyone who visited and somehow the food never ran out. Like the miracle of the five loaves and two fishes, how she fed so many visitors still remains a mystery. Her warm, inviting home with friends and relatives in place at her kitchen table is a vision that lives fondly in my memory.

"She would feed everyone who visited and somehow the food never ran out."

BeefShortRibs2_620x635BeefShortRibs2_620x635

"She would feed everyone who visited and somehow the food never ran out."

I gave these ribs a moderate sprinkling of the Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and Garlic Salt, and baked them for a little over two hours. My house smelled amazing and the seasoning let the full flavor of the beef ribs shine.

Prep Time: 10 mins | Total Time: About 2 ½ hours | Serves 8

4 pounds beef short ribs
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 ounces beer
3 russet potatoes, quartered
2 carrots, peeled and quartered
1 tablespoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
1 tablespoon Lawry’s Garlic Salt
1 tablespoon ground pepper
2 bay leaves
½ onion, sliced

BeefShortRibs_620x635BeefShortRibs_620x635

Preheat oven to 350°F. Arrange all the ribs in a roasting pan, casserole dish or Dutch oven.

Pour olive oil and beer over the ribs and surround with potatoes and carrots.

Sprinkle Lawry's Seasoned Salt, Lawry's Garlic Salt and pepper over meat and place bay leaves and onion slices on top.

Cover with aluminum foil or oven-safe lid and bake for 2 to 2 ½ hours.

Carefully remove the foil or lid and turn the meat over.

Replace covering and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove bay leaves before serving.

Tip: Ribs are done when you try prying the meat off the bone; the meat will be loose and spin with little to no resistance.
