This marinade is reminiscent of bulgogi. The wings absorb alot of flavor and are great on the grill, just make sure not to scorch.

The longer the marinate the better they get.

Garam Masala

Garam Masala is the Indian equivalent of French herbes de Provence or Chinese five-spice powder.

The recipe changes from region to region within northern India, make it the way you like.

The flavors will be much stronger is fresh spices are used.

Rosebuds (found in Indian or Middle Eastern markets) can add an exciting floral note, you can use black cardamom, or fennel seeds . Once you taste the difference that this simple powder makes in your cooking, you will find it worth the investment of cupboard space.

As a rule (one that certainly gets broken all the time):

Garam Masala is only added at the last step of cooking, almost like a fresh herb, because it tends to become bitter if cooked too long.

Shrimp Provencial with Lemoncello®

This Dish is reminiscent of a dish I ordered many years ago in a fine French Restaurant in Quebec.

I remember calling it Shrimp Proffa Sally: I was a little kid after all. It looked so good but….. I couldn’t stand garlic, and would not eat one bit of if after I tasted the garlic.

Now I love this dish and This is pretty close to the original, only better with the Lemoncello® Sauce.

You can do the same thing with sea scallops.
