Grilled Vidalia Onion


2 Vidalia onions (approximately one pound), cut into 1/2-inch thick circles

2 Tbl No-Stick Grilling Marinade for Vegetables

2 tsp Black Pepper, freshly ground

12 wooden or metal skewers, soaked in water for 45 minutes


Run two soaked skewers through the side of each onion, so that each onion slice looks like a double handled lollipop. Wrap the skewers in foil.

Brush the no-stick marinade on the onions and allow them to marinate for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle the onions with the black pepper.

Prepare the grill. Cook onions over direct medium heat for 3 minutes. Rotate the onions one quarter turn, cooking for 2 minutes more. Turn the onions over and cook for three minutes covered. Remove onions from the grill and remove aluminum foil. Serve immediately.

Yield: 6-8 servings

The no-stick grilling marinade for beef works with this recipe, too.

RSJ’s Smoked Yellowfin Tuna Dip

The smoked tuna dip at Harbor docks is, by far, the best in the area. Actually, it’s the best I have ever tasted. Over the years I have taken a few stabs at recreating a Harbor Dock’s version, but always come up short. After several failed attempts, and facing a cookbook deadline, I finally worked up a recipe for smoked crab dip, which is excellent, though my wife still prefers Harbor Docks smoked tuna dip.
