Hi, Wondercaders — Chef Josh Capon here with a recipe perfect for summer grilling. Now, before we jump into this dish, I have a few tips to get you started: First, you gotta make sure your grill is HCO — hot, clean, and oiled! Make sure your grill is nice and HOT. Next, give your grill a good scrub to get all of the debris off from last time you cooked. And lastly, make sure you oil it up so that you’re grilling doesn’t stick. (I like to wipe it down with a rag with a little bit of oil.) Then…it’s time to cook, baby!

Let’s dive in: This recipe is SO EASY and is absolutely perfect for grilling and entertaining outside. Don’t forget to check out my other recipes you can make right on the grill — grilled avocado with crab salad and grilled corn cacio e pepe. Doesn’t get much better than dipping a warm baguette in the garlic chili butter!
