Father’s Day Menu: Contributed by Kelly Sterling
When it comes to grilling, most Americans would agree that meat is the heart of any good backyard cookout. Yet seafood becomes smoky and sublime when cooked over an open flame. We say, why not go for both?
Hot off the grill, the oysters, tenderloin and lobster below make a show-stopping meal. Paired with the sides, the menu becomes the ultimate Father’s Day feast.
Grilling the oysters eliminates the obstacle of shucking them, as they simply steam open. Pair the oysters (and the lobster tail below) with the Sendero des Santos, an Albariño from Spain’s Rías Baixas that’s included in the Frontgate Reserve Top 12.
12 large oysters, rinsed and scrubbed
1 cup rice wine vinegar
1 shallot, minced
1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
¼ cup minced carrot
¼ cup minced red bell pepper
¼ cup minced cucumber
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Several turns freshly ground black pepper
To make the mignonette, combine all ingredients except the oysters in a bowl. [...]
