These Swordfish Sandwiches certainly check off all of the boxes. Perfectly grilled swordfish steaks on crusty Italian bread with peppery arugula and […]

Sausage and Peppers Sandwiches

Sausage and Peppers

Where I come from we would call this a wedge, some people call it a hero, some call it a hoagie or grinder, so I am just going with Sausage and Peppers Sandwiches here and you can call them whatever you like. Sausage and Peppers Sandwiches rank right up there with Grilled Chicken with Salmoriglio as one […]

Grilled Swordfish with Breadcrumbs

Grilled Swordfish with Breadcrumbs

I have been fascinated by this Sicilian technique of coating marinated swordfish in breadcrumbs and grilling it ever since I first saw it in the book Coming Home to Sicily by Fabrizia Lanza. So, now that the warmer spring weather has finally hit, what better time to feature it? I made some small tweaks to her recipe, including […]

Swordfish Sicilian Style

Sword Fish Sicilian Style

Swordfish Sicilian Style is kind of a deceiving name for this dish, considering that swordfish is prepared so many different ways in Sicily. Dishes like Stuffed Swordfish Rolls and Swordfish coated in breadcrumbs and grilled are also very typically Sicilian just to name a couple. But, this tasty lemon, oil, garlic and white wine sauce just never fails to […]

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

We have actuallly had a Baked Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus recipe on the site for years. But lately, I find myself making it on the grill much more often. The prosciutto gets nice and crispy and you get a smokey flavor, expecially if you use charcoal. Plus, this recipe is about as easy as it gets. […]

Involtini di Pesce Spada

The last time I visited Sicily just about every restaurant I went to had a variation of these typically Sicilian stuffed swordfish rolls on the menu. This is one version of the dish, it can also be found with a stuffing that contains currants and pine nuts. I’m a big olive and caper fan so […]

Grilled Pizza Puttanesca

Grilled Pizza Puttanesca

I was going to include this pizza in the same post as the Grilled Pizza with Cherry Tomatoes I featured recently. At the time I was just topping it with chopped olives and capers and it was very good that way, but I still felt something was lacking. So, I held off on sharing the recipe, while […]

Grilled Pizza with Cherry Tomatoes

Grilled Pizza with Cherry Tomatoes

I recently came across some delicious cherry and grape tomatoes at my local farmers market. I was planning on making some grilled pizza and as soon as I tasted them, I knew that they had to go on least one of the pizzas. I did two versions, one replaced the sauce completely with the tomatoes, […]
