Southwestern Style Rotisserie Pork Tenderloin

Rotisserie cooking is a great way to extend the versatility of your Fire Magic Grill. All of our Echelon Series Grills include a heavy-duty rotisserie kit with high torque motor, stainless steel spit rod, spit forks and a counter balance. The system comes optional with our Aurora Series Grills. Rotisserie cooking is the perfect way to cook larger items such as whole chickens or roasts.

Marinated Halibut with Mango Slaw

• 4 1″-2″ thick halibut or grouper fillets
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 7 tablespoons fresh lime juice
• 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
• 2 large garlic cloves (finely chopped)
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (plus additional for grilling)
• 1 ripe mango
• 3 celery stalks (cut into julienne strips)
• 3 scallions (dark-green part only (cut into 2-inch-long thin strips)
• 1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves (cut lengthwise into thin strips)
• 1/2 pound shitake mushrooms (caps only, discard the stems)
• 4 long metal skewers

1. Marinated Halibut: Rinse fish and pat dry. Whisk together honey, 5 tablespoons lime juice, pepper flakes, garlic and oil in a glass dish just large enough to fit fish in a single layer. Coat the fish and marinate at room temperature, turning halfway through, for 20 minutes.

2. Mango Slaw: Peel the mango and starting from the outside moving in toward pit, cut into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Cut into julienne strips and transfer to a serving bowl along with celery, scallion, and basil.

3. Preheat grill and lightly oil rack. Thread mushrooms through length of caps onto skewers; season with salt and pepper.

4. Remove fish from marinade and season with salt and pepper. Grill mushrooms and fish, turning once, until fish is cooked through and mushrooms are tender, about 7 minutes. Transfer fish to a serving platter. When cool enough to handle, remove mushrooms from skewers and thinly slice.

5. Add mushrooms and remaining 2 tablespoons juice to Mango Slaw; toss to combine. Salt and pepper to taste.

Makes 4 servings. Serve fish warm with slaw on the side.

Spicy Chicken with Grilled Pineapple

• 8 scallions (chopped)

• 1 medium onion (chopped)
• 3 garlic cloves (chopped)
• 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
• 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
• 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

• 1 habanero or jalapeno chile (chopped)
• 1 1/2 tablespoons thyme leaves
• 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
• 2 teaspoons allspice
• 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 3 1/2 pounds chicken parts (thighs and drumsticks)
• 1 fresh pineapple, app. 4 pounds
• 2 1/2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1. Make sauce/marinade: Place first 12 ingredients in a food processor and puree until almost smooth. Transfer half of puree to a small bowl to be used as the sauce. Keep the bowl chilled and covered.

2. Place remaining puree in a large heavy-duty resealable plastic bag with chicken and seal the bag, turning to coat well. Marinate, chilled, turning bag occasionally, at least 8 hours or overnight, placing bag in a large bowl to catch any leaks.

3. Preheat grill and lightly oil rack. Let chicken stand in marinade at room temperature 30 minutes before grilling. Meanwhile, cut sides and ends off pineapple. Cut crosswise into 15 slices about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle one side of each slice with 1/2 teaspoon packed light brown sugar. Place sugared side down on rack and grill, turning once, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a platter, alternating slices with scallion garnish.

4. Remove chicken from marinade and grill over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until cooked through, approximately 35 to 45 minutes. Transfer to platter with pineapple and serve with remaining sauce on side.
