A Seasonal & Stoney Summer Menu for Two

Whether you are looking for last minute ideas for the 4th, or just looking for some Summer recipe inspiration using fresh seasonal ingredients, we got you covered! This is one of our favorite fresh & faded menus for a night grilling in the backyard or on the beach. These dishes are infused with flavor and stoney goodness!

Appetizer Round

Strawberries are in season, and we love throwing these into our menu because they are rich in Vitamin C, antioxidants, magnesium and phosphorous. These bad boys can help prevent disease and keep the body guarded and protected. Paired with your favorite infused honey and butter, this dish is sure to impress your summer guests. Scallops are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and rich in magnesium, grilled and garlicky, these will be gone before you know it.

What you need to make this:

  • From the garden: 1 lb strawberries, 1 tsp lemon zest, 1 tbsp infused honey, fresh basil, lemon wedges

  • From the farm: 3 tbsp melted canna-butter, ricotta cheese

  • From the pantry: Wooden skewers, pinch of sea salt flakes, crusty baguette, balsamic glaze

Let's get cooking:

Soak the wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes. Thread the strawberries onto the skewers and set aside. In a small bowl whisk together melted canna-butter, infused honey, lemon zest and kosher salt. Brush onto the strawberries with a basting brush.

Heat the grill (or a pan) to medium heat and cook strawberry skewers until slightly charred on each side, continue to baste with sauce as they cook. Remove from heat and top with a squeeze of lemon.

Mix your ricotta, salt and pepper in a medium to small bowl. Slice your bread to your desired thickness and chop basil. Place baguette slices onto a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil (infused for a triple infused appetizer). Bake at 350 for 10-14 minutes, or until golden brown.

Time to assemble, start with 1-2 tbsps of ricotta onto the crostini, followed with roasted strawberries, balsamic glaze and basil slices. Enjoy!

What you need to make this:

  • From the garden: Zest from 1 lemon, 2 minced garlic cloves, dill leaves

  • From the sea: 12 sea scallops stuck to shell

  • From the pantry: Oil, 3/4 cup of white wine, salt and pepper

Let's get cooking:

Preheat pan over high heat, add butter, lemon zest, garlic and cook 2-3 minutes. Add white wine, and be careful of splatter. Stir constantly until there is no wine remaining (or until it is fully absorbed).

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush with oil with a basting brush till well coated. Place the scallops onto the grill shell side up and cook without moving for 1 minute. Flip and cook for another minute and top with sauce and chopped dill.

Let's Talk Drinks
