Grilled Citrus Margarita

3 Lemons - halved crosswise

3 Limes - halved crosswise

2 Oranges - halved crosswise

4oz Simple syrup

1 Tbsp. Dry Canyon Salt White Wine Blend

1/8 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

Ice

12 oz Silver tequila

Lime wedge for garnish

 

Light the grill! Grill halved citrus fruits over high heat, cut side down, until lightly charred, about 5 minutes.

Transfer to a plate and cool.

Juice the limes, lemons and oranges into separate cups, strain the seeds and pulp; you should get about 4oz juice each. This step can be done ahead of time, keep the juices in the fridge 1-2 days.

 

Mix Dry Canyon Salt White Wine Blend and cayenne pepper on a shallow plate. Using a lime wedge, moisten half of the outer rim of 6 rocks or margarita glasses. Lightly coat the moistened rims with salt mix. Then fill each glass with ice.

 

In a pitcher, add the tequila, simple syrup and 3 oz each of the lime, lemon, and orange juices. Stir well and pour into prepared glasses. Garnish the margaritas with a lime wedge dipped into salt mix.

Serves 6

 

** To make the simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a pan and bring to a boil. Stir, simmering until the sugar melts. Remove from heat and allow it to cool. Can be kept in the fridge for up to one month

While the chicken is grilling, prepare the eggplant by slicing off the top and bottom, and then slicing longways through the eggplant. You should get 3-4 “steaks” per eggplant. 6-8 total

3 Zucchini - sliced ¼” thick 
¼ Medium onion - sliced ¼” thick 
⅓ C. Cherry tomatoes - halved 
2 Tbsp Butter 
2 tsp. Dry Canyon White Wine Salt Blend

¼ of the Zucchini slices, ¼ of the sliced onion, ¼ of the sliced tomatoes, 1/2Tbsp. Butter.

Sprinkle ½ tsp. Dry Canyon White Wine Salt Blend over the top. Roll foil together to seal. You want to get a good seal so no steam escapes.

Repeat with the rest of the ingredients until you have four packets altogether.

Place packets on a baking sheet and bake, in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Adjust the cooking time for thick fish filets. 

The packets will be very hot and steamy when you first take them out of the oven. Take care when opening them. 
Finish with a squeeze of lemon.

Serves four
This recipe can be halved or doubled or tripled depending on how many meals you need for your family. 
The packets can be placed on a medium-hot BBQ and makes a fun camping meal.
