Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Zuppa de Pesce via the Egg for Father's Day

Happy Father's Day weekend to all the Dads out there.

Dad's would rather cook than be taken out, eh? This one would.....

One of Dad's (mine) favorite dishes all time is Zuppa de Pesce, the way they serve it over at Zuccarelli's in WPB, FL. They serve it as a pasta dish, not a soup as the name implies. We order it with a white sauce, which they call 'arragetta'. There's no such sauce on the web but it is basically a scampi sauce made with long hot peppers. To the sauce and the pasta (your choice, usually we get angel hair) are added a mountain of various shellfish and some fish filets. Put it on a large platter and you have a family event. 

The round-up this morning will be the seafood, which will come from Costco and another one or two places. Lobster, clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops, scungili, and calamari. Planning to cook all or nearly all on the Egg. Peppers from our garden, we have a ton, will get roasted on the Egg. Thinking about homemade pasta but that's not our forte. Scampi sauce is simple, use wine, butter, lotsa fresh garlic. Wife is going to make garlic knots to go with. Dinner's tonight at 6:00 (so Dad can have leftovers for breakfast on Father's Day!).

    Can't help you with that, but if you want a copycat recipe from Olive Garden for Zuppa Toscana, let me know.
