1) GRILLED HAWAIIAN MAHI MAHI FOIL PACKETS

PREP TIME 25 min. TOTAL TIME 45 min. NUMBER OF INGREDIENTS: 11 SERVES: 4

1 tablespoon lime juice

1 cup chopped fresh pineapple

1 cup chopped fresh mango

1 cup chopped red bell pepper

1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded, chopped (1 large = 1/4 cup chopped)

2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic

PAM® Coconut Oil No-Stick Cooking Spray

4 mahi mahi fillets, thawed if frozen, patted dry (4 fillets = 1-1/2 pounds)

3/4 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

Chopped macadamia nuts and chopped cilantro, optional

Directions

Preheat gas grill for medium-high heat. Meanwhile, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar and lime juice in large bowl. Add pineapple, mango, bell pepper, jalapeno and garlic; toss together. Place four 18×12 pieces of heavy aluminum foil on counter. Spray each with cooking spray. Divide fruit mixture evenly between pieces of foil. Top each with a mahi mahi fillet; sprinkle with chipotle pepper and salt. Double fold top and ends of each piece of foil, leaving space for steam to gather. Place packets on grate; cover grill.

Grill 12 to 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork (145°F). Carefully open packets; sprinkle with nuts and cilantro before serving, if desired. Cook’s Tips: Packets may be baked on a shallow pan in 425°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork (145°F). 2)

2) GRILLED POTATO SALAD WITH MUSTARD DRESSING

PREP TIME 40 min. TOTAL TIME 50 min. NUMBER OF INGREDIENTS: 9 SERVES: 16

Ingredients

3 pounds baby Yukon gold potatoes

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 onion (sweet), thickly sliced

6 slices thick cut bacon

1/4 cup roughly cut fresh dill weed

1/2 cup sliced green onions

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup Gulden’s® Spicy Brown Mustard

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Directions

Preheat the grill to high. Add the potatoes to a large pot of boiling salted water and cook for 8 minutes or until just before al dente. Strain the potatoes and add them to a bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and add them to the grill, to slightly char and finish cooking. While the potatoes are cooking, coat the onion slices in the remaining oil and add them to the grill to roast. Once the potatoes are slightly charred and cooked through, remove them from the grill along with the onions and chill. Next add the bacon strips to a cooler part of the grill and cook until crispy. Note the bacon will cause a lot of flames so constantly turn them and move them. The bacon will also cook very fast. Once the bacon is cooked, remove and chop. In a large bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard and apple cider vinegar until combined and add in the potatoes and onions once cool along with the bacon, dill, green onions, salt and pepper and toss and chill. Serve cold.

3) ITALIAN SAUSAGE AND MUSHROOM GRILLED PIZZA

PREP TIME 40 min. TOTAL TIME 40 min. NUMBER OF INGREDIENTS:7  SERVES: 6

Ingredients PAM® Grilling Spray 1 can (28 oz each)

Hunt’s® Whole Peeled Plum Tomatoes, drained well

1 clove garlic

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 pkg (16 oz each) ready to bake pizza dough

1/2 pound hot Italian pork sausage links (1/2 pound = 2 links)

4 ounces baby portobello mushrooms

1-1/2 cups shredded Italian blend or mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup fresh torn basil leaves

Directions

Spray cold grates of gas grill with grilling spray. Preheat grill for medium-low heat. Meanwhile, pulse tomatoes, garlic and salt in food processor until well blended; set aside. Spray rimless baking sheet or pizza pan with grilling spray. Roll dough in a 12-inch circle on lightly floured surface. Carefully transfer dough to baking sheet and then directly onto grill grates. Grill dough until lightly charred, about 2 minutes per side. Grill sausage until cooked through (160°F), about 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Thread mushrooms on wooden skewer. Grill until lightly charred, about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Slice sausages into 1/4-inch rounds; cut mushrooms into quarters. Spread tomato sauce evenly on grilled crust; top with cheese, sausage, mushrooms and basil. Grill pizza until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes, rotating pizza if needed for even heating. Cut into 6 slices.

Cook’s Tips: To quickly make your own pizza dough: Add 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon instant yeast, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar to food processor; pulse until well combined, about 15 seconds. Add 3/4 cup warm water and 1 tablespoon olive oil and continue to pulse until dough forms a ball, about 30 seconds. Remove dough and knead until smooth. Place dough in medium bowl; cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
