Spatchcocked Yard Bird Tonight
Posted 26 July 2012 - 08:53 PM
So, I decided to bbq something. I figured some chicken spatchcocked would be easy. Did some brussel sprouts with Louisianna hot sausage and onion and some grilled corn too.
Came out pretty decent for an adhoc dinner.

Here's a picture of one I did a couple weeks ago where I put it on the grill skin down where you can see the way it was done. You just use some heavy kitchen shears to cut down each side of the backbone. You end up taking out about a 3/4" piece of the back. Then squash it flat.

Those brussel sprouts are beginning to be a favorite of mine. Those have some carmelized onion and louisianna hot sausage in there. I think I like them better with bacon or panchetta, but the sausage was good too, and it was all we had.
The key I found to getting rid of the bitter taste is to blanch them in boiling water for 2 mins first, then cook them in the oven or skillet as you normally would. We did a side by side test and it was bitter if you don’t blanch them. When you blanch them, they are slightly sweet like corn.

Not really on topic here, but I love lima beans and have found many people don't like them. I wonder why that is? Maybe like brussel sprouts they just haven't had them or had them cooked properly.
