A Little Taste Of Argentina

Travel Virginia Jan\Feb 08 Column

Grllin and Outdoor Livin with Jim Baugh
Reporting dockside

Hello everyone! Yes it is true, we have just been caching a ton of MONSTER rockfish during Jan and Feb of 08. This has been one of the best years yet fishing for Rockfish out of Hampton Virginia and we have been keeping the Suzuki’s purrin all fall. The fishing has just been fantastic. Now, we do so many Rockfish recipe’s, today I thought I would share a new and different dish that we cooked up right here on the boat Dockside downtown in Hampton.

Now this is not a seafood dish, but the Argentine relish that is used in this dish can go on just about anything, steak, chicken, or any meaty seafood like Rockfish, Sea Bass, etc. I must give credit to this dish to a good friend and family member, Uncle Bill from Roanoke Virginia. Uncle Bill is a master of the grill and has even built one of those custom tow behind trailer type grills. Bill also is a real champ when it comes to sauces for his barbecue. Well, this dish is a basic flank steak that can be grilled with or without seasoning the streak. The real key here is this relish that Bill made that is based on an old Argentinean Chimichurri recipe, where he got it form, I have no idea, but it is the best thing you will ever try.

First thing to do is get the grill ready and prepare your flank steak. A good marinade is a little ginger, honey, soy, garlic, and jalapeno seasoning. Some fresh cracked pepper to taste and some sea salt. However for this dish, seasoning the Flank is not really necessary because the relish has so much flavor, it is quite unreal. A very tasty dish!!

Here are the ingredients:
One bunch of Parsley
Five cloves of garlic
Two shallots
One fresh jalapeno
Three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
One fresh line, squeezed
Dash of crushed red pepper, and a dash of cumin
Sea Salt to taste.

Now, take ALL the ingredients and blend in a Blender or Food processor. Chill, then stand at room temp. The finished product will look like a green thick relish. Simply serve tableside and put on your grilled flank steak, and you will have one of the best dishes you will ever have.
I cooked this on the boat, and also used it to marinade Rockfish and I did a chicken in the crock-pot with this relish. It all was just fantastic.

Some great tips to try?? Also make up a nice summer tomato salsa fresh with a bit of Cilantro. Also make up a sour cream and Horseradish sauce, serve them all as toppings for your fresh grilled Flank steak, or whatever main dish you happen to be serving.

Now, this may not seem like a hard recipe to do, and it is not. Fast and easy, but I will tell you for sure, it is one of the best things you will ever taste!!

See everyone in Hampton on the water, or Dockside for a bite of waterfront living!!
