Have you ever grilled a Pea?
The grill technique with a sieve
This technique comes from Victor Arguinzoniz, from Asador Etxebarri in the Basque Country, Spain. The Asador Etxebarri is considered to be one of the best restaurants in the world.
There they use this technique with a sieve to grill ingredients of very small size to preserve the flavors.
Small shrimps or very small vegetables: peas, corn, carrots that otherwise could not be grilled are perfect for this technique. Any kind of food that can be cut before a barbecue (including small leftovers). You don't have to do anything with mini vegetables. Kids can thus eat with their hands, leaving parents more time for everything else. And: When barbecuing for children, you can also take the chance to "cheer on" one or two vegetables, hoping to get some vegetable enthusiasm going.
But this technique can also be of interest to the grown-ups, with many creative applications and new taste experiences. And finally: Ideal for small balconies, tiny spaces, mini barbecues...
