Take your grilling FLAVOR to the next level!

For more details: Please visit this page.

I love grilled foods. One wedding anniversary a few years ago, my hubby and I opted to stay at home and cook for each other instead.  

In connection with grilling,  thought it would be nice to share with you a nice grilling activity courtesy of McCormick on April 7, 2013.  But before I continue with that, I'll share my favorite grilled recipe first.  It's a dish that I make for my family every time there's a get-together ever since that first try a few years ago.

Now, going back a few years ago during our anniversary, I told hubby that I would like to try shrimp kebabs and I came up with a very simple recipe.  My hubby absolutely loved it! Of course, appearance-wise, it doesn't look as yummy as those in restaurants, but since it was cooked/grilled with love, it tasted much better than those!

This was a picture of  my yummy Shrimp Kebabs
the first time I came up with the recipe.
This was taken on our anniversary!

1 kilo of shrimps (or prawns), shelled, deveined
1 big yellow bell pepper
1 big green pepper
1/2 kilo onions (red variety, small ones)
1/2 tsp. McCormick dried rosemary
1/2 tsp. McCormick dried thyme
1/2 tsp. McCormick dried oregano
2 tbsp of  fresh lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
BBQ sticks

1. Wash and strain the deveined shrimps. 
2. Place the following in a medium-sized bowl: all the herbs, lemon juice, shrimps.  Add a little salt and pepper to taste (about 1/4 tsp each).
3. Marinade for about 30-40 minutes.
4. While marinading, prepare the griller. Dice the bell peppers into approximately 1"x2" squares.  Cut the onions into four. 
5. Skewer into a stick a piece of yellow bell pepper, shrimp, green bell pepper, shrimp and onion (or however way you like your kebab to look)  
6.  Grill for about 10 minutes or until the shrimps and the veggies turn a little brown.

If you do not like rosemary, thyme and oregano, you can replace it all with 1 tsp. McCormick Cajun.  A teaspoon really goes a long, long way!

Side note: I have been looking Cajun seasoning for the longest time, and I only got to have it when last Christmas, my friend Eve, gave me a tiny pack of it (which I'm so thankful for!).  Good thing, I discovered McCormick's Grill Line, which includes Cajun.  

I love McCormick and I have been using it ever since I learned how to cook about ten years ago. Yes, I'm a late bloomer!  

Did you know, I won a McCormick spice rack many, many years ago (when I could still only barely cook) and all my friends have attempted to ask me to give it to them instead.  I've turned down all of them since it's one of my prized possessions and I make sure to replenish all my spices when they're running very low.

Anyway, McCormick will hold an event on April 7, 2013 which highlights their Grill Mates line.  It will be called McCormick Grill Nation and it will feature McCormick's different seasoning mixes through serving grilled meats.  Again, this will be held on April 7, 2013 at Bonifacio High Street, Lane O cor. 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The event starts at 4pm.

Here's part of the announcement of McCormick: 

"The event will have a cover charge of Php 100 but with that, a lot of freebies will be given away! 
(The event is open to the public, however, food samples will be given to participants 
who purchase 5 packs of McCormick Grill Mates Seasoning Mix – you get these with the P100 already!)"

Nice!!!!!! So please, do come and let's have fun grilling!

Oh by the way, each pack of McCormick Grill Mates Seasoning Mixes (Pepper Steak, Hickory Smoked, Cajun, Steak a la Pobre, and Korean BBQ) gives you a wonderful blend of authentic McCormick herbs and spices!) Hmmmm... Yummylicious!!!!

Next time, I want to try McCormick's Hickory Smoked Seasoning Mix. I bet it's as good as the other McCormick Flavorings that I've tried.

Enjoy steaks the way Americans do with McCormick Hickory Smoked Seasoning Mix.  It gives that sweet, hickory-smoked, hot-off-the-grill flavor to beef, pork or chicken.

Now I'm feeling hungry...
