Right now I’m really into grilling stuff. Yes, it makes my hair smell like a bonfire, but the taste of meat that was cooked on a hot grill is just not the same as meat that’s been baked/panfried/roasted etc. What can I say, I’m no vegetarian, I can appreciate the taste of charred meat.
So on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon, I took a trip to the Granville Island market with a friend, and picked out some pre-marinated lamb souvlaki. For the record, I absolutely love Granville Island and cannot help but want to buy EVERYTHING when I’m there! Fresh, local produce is a major weakness of mine! Whenever I go, I always stock up on different kinds of cheese, foie gras (goose and black truffle is my favourite!), berries, and either meat or fresh fish. On this day, I picked up the lamb souvlaki since they were only $5 a skewer, and three skewers were more than enough to feed two people! I also got a huge basket of massive blueberries, goat cheese, and romaine lettuce.
Back at home (home is only a 15min walk away down the seawall!), I threw the kebabs on the grill on high heat while I assembled a delicious salad comprised of:
- Romaine lettuce
- Goat cheese rolled in crushed walnuts
- Almond slivers
- Parmesan cheese
- Honey-dijon vinaigrette
This is a very small portion of the sea wall in Vancouver! It’s nowhere near the route I took to get to Granville Island, but you get the idea. It was a pretty walk!
And YES it was as delicious as it looks!! Dinner was served in under 30min 🙂
