Grilled Flat-bread

It’s 100 degrees outside and the last thing I’m doing is cranking the oven to 500 to bake a loaf of bread. So to me that translates to another excuse to use the grill. Plus, grilled flat-bread is a lighter twist to the usual rustic style bread I bake up on the regular. Best part…no stone!  Cook these directly on the grill grates!

Prep time: 30mins (after dough has been made)
Grill time: ~6mins

Get yourself:

  • Batch of bread dough
  • Sea salt or Kosher
  • Cracked black pepper
  • .25C Olive oil
  • Basting brush
  • Spray oil
  • Parchment paper
  • Tongs

Let’s get it poppin’

Form dough balls into 6-8oz balls and let rest covered for about 30mins

Preheat grill on high while dough rests

Flour your surface and flatten out dough into a round, size does not matter…

…neither does shape…

I made these two ways:

1) Hand method – best results: soft, airy, and fluffy

2) Rolling pin – Not so good: chewy and dense

Roll ’em out, not too thin or they will be cracker-y

You want them to be thick enough to puff up a bit on the grill…

…soft and fluffy is texture we are going for

Line sheet pan with parchment and brush with a little oil

Lay dough on top and brush with oil

Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper

Pattern…parchment, oil, dough, oil, parchment, repeat

Make sure the dough is not holding any pools of oil…

…or you will experience great conflagration…

Grill grates should be smoking hot…

Quickly – shut off flame, spray grates with spray oil like Pam olive oil…

…turn flame back on to medium high

Grab the parchment and slap the dough onto the grill…

…peel the parchment back

If you feel you might destroy the dough doing this than I recommend you…

…roll out the dough rounds and grill one at a time using a pizza peel to transfer dough to grill

Grill for a few mins on each side

Flip and grill for a few more mins

Keep knockin’ ’em out and stack the flat-breads as they come off the grill

Serve warm on the side of whatever you happen to be eating…

…everything goes with grilled flat-bread…

…yum…

Here’s another version I did…

This one is the pizza peel version that I mentioned above…

Either way is off the hook

Enjoy!

Grilled Tilapia with Fresh Avocado Salsa

Call me the Colonel because I have a bangin’ original recipe for you. I’m talking lite, healthy, bursting with flavor, quick, easy, and sexy. I take a nice hunk of simply dressed tilapia and throw it on the grill for a few and dress it with a super flavorful avocado salsa. It screams fresh…throw this into a tortilla and hit it with some spice and call it a fish taco or do what I did and serve it with a side of warm grilled flat-bread. Money.

Serves 4
Prep time: 15mins
Cook time: 6mins

Get yourself:

  • 4 Fresh Tilapia filets
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Tomato (you can use a beefsteak or a handful of cherry/grape)
  • .25 Red Onion, diced
  • .5 Lemon, juiced
  • 1.5T Red wine vinegar
  • 1t Fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 Garlic clove, small and diced fine or grated
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • .5t Kosher salt
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Get that avocado opened

…nice and easy when you drop the blade on the pit…

Let tilapia get to room temperature and brush some evoo on

Sprinkle with some kosher salt and a few grinds of black pepper

Spray your grates with Pam or brush grates with evoo

Preheat your grill on medium

Salsa time!

…muy caliente..

Chop your avocado, tomato, red onion, garlic, and parsley and toss into a bowl

Add in your fresh squeezed lemon juice, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper

Stomp your feet in a fit of joy

Throw the tilapia on the grill for a few minutes on each side

Fish is done when flesh is opaque and flaky

Careful when handling on grill…get a good spatula….

…it can easily go from…

“Oh my, look at that beautiful hunk of fish” to “OMG! I just smashed my fish into smithereens!

Hopefully your fish comes off in one piece…

Dress it up with a little of that delicious avocado salsa…

Break off a piece of that luscious warm grilled flat-bread…

…and EAT!

I will post a recipe for the flat-bread ASAP!
