Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From California across to Texas, an abundance of dry sunny days send home cooks out to the backyard grill as nowhere else in the country. Now, with Michael McLaughlin's The Southwestern Grill, outdoor chefs anywhere in the land can stoke up the fire and cook up a splendid feast of sure-to-please grilled fare with a Southwestern flair.

The genius of Southwestern cuisine lies in the use of big, bright flavors — seasonings like garlic and onion, lime and other citrus juices, herb and spice rubs, and, of course, chile peppers — to enliven the tastes of meats, seafoods, and vegetables without a lot of time and effort in the kitchen. It's a simple and straightforward yet flavor-rich way to cook that suits the easygoing experience of grilling just fine.

Grilling over an open flame goes back a long way in the Southwest. McLaughlin draws on the fire-cooking traditions of early Spaniards, as well as cowboys and Native Americans, Anglo settlers, and Mexicans and Mexican-Americans.

His recipes range from the rustic and time-tested, like arracheras, a traditional Mexican-style preparation of beef skirt steak (and the granddaddy to today's fajitas), or adobo, to the fully contemporary. Grilling plays a starring role in the kitchens of today's best Southwestern restaurant chefs, and, in the casual and elegant dishes like Grilled Salmon Burgers with Rosemary-Achiote Mop or Pecan-Grilled Rack of Lamb, McLaughlin interprets for home cooks the best ideas from these sources. He shows how subregional specialties like Baja-style fish tacos or Texas-style spice-rubbed T-bones are at their very best when the main ingredient is grilled.

With a big chapter on robust and versatile rubs, mops, salsas, and sauces, trays full of bocaditos — appetizers — to enjoy while the food grills, loads of ideas for main- and side-dish salads, and vegetable dishes, made with grilled ingredients, and dozens of inventive, assertively seasoned main courses, this is a book that will give Southwest-inspired cooks from anywhere ample reasons to leave the kitchen behind and head out to the backyard.

Review:
