Sobey's BBQ Part1- The Appetizer
When I was contacted to participate in the Sobey's "Fire Up the Grill" event, i was stoked! We are a BIG bbq'ing family (you know, the kind that shovels out the Bbq in the winter because steaks simply taste better that way!) and this product review sounded super yummy!
"I have two basil plants in the greenhouse..." i think to myself (thankfully to myself. I am quite known to just talk to people in the grocery store, lol).
"Not enough. Hmm..."
On a trip to the store prior, i had picked up a copy of "Inspired". Last minute i had decided to throw it in my bag, just.in.case! I knew what i had chosen to make for dinner, but i wondered if i should change my recipe due to the limited basil? A few yummy options were presented, but in the end i decided to buy Sobey's Compliments Sensation brand Traditional Style Pesto (page 14) and to make a third recipe that also highlighted Sobey's awesome Compliments Sensation Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena!
Back home and ready to start grilling...
Grilled Pesto Prawn Skewers
32 Medium Sized Prawns
1 package of Sobey's Compliment Sensation Traditional Style Pesto
1. In a bowl, coat prawns with pesto, cover and refrigerate for up to 30 minutes.
2. Preheat grill to low.
3. Remove prawns from fridge and thread onto 8 soaked bamboo skewers. Grill skewers for 2-3 minutes on each side.
4. Serve immediately.
The pesto really was a great addition to the prawns. It coated the prawns up nice and thick and *most* of the Pesto even stayed on during cooking. We definitely enjoyed them and will be cooking them like this again! I do however, wish that i was able to make my own Pesto... but will have to save that for another time.
I totally encourage you to try this simple appetizer yourself!
