Last week I had the opportunity to visit Red Lobster to try out their Wood-Fire Grill menu. It was the perfect way to kick off summer, and as you can see from the pictures below, it was absolutely delicious!
Not only was it a very tasty meal, but it was also pretty healthy too. I thought that the portion sizes were perfect and I left feeling satisfied, but not over-stuffed – which is always nice.
If you are a local reader, you might be interested to know that Justin Coy, from the Red Lobster at 9067 Westview Road in Littleton, was one of the finalists (out of 3,600) in this year’s national Red Lobster Grill Master Challenge!
Below are a few of his insider grilling tips:
-Know the Hot Spots. For even cooking, place thicker foods at the center of the grill, smaller pieces toward the edges and leave one inch of space between each piece of food.
-Keep Proteins Lean. Select healthy, lean proteins to throw on the grill. By using leaner proteins it’s a virtual guarantee against flame flare-ups and makes cleanup easier.
-Check the Clock. Steak, fish and chicken do not have to be grilled at different temperatures, but do have to be grilled for different times. Grilling time averages per side: four minutes for steak, five minutes for fish and six to seven minutes for chicken.
