|Cilantro and Lime in EVERY Bite!|
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup water
1 lime, zested
3 tbsp cilantro
Dissolve the sugar and water in a small sauce pan. Add the lime zest and cilantro and bring to boil for about 2 minutes. Pour the pale green syrup over a mesh strainer to remove the cilantro (it's a little crispy)
1/2 cup marscapone
1 tbsp cilantro lime simple syrup
pinch of salt
Stir all ingredients for a great complement to fruit!
Grilled Fruit Skewers and Challah Bread
chunks of pineapple
Cilantro Lime Simple Syrup
For the Fruit: Skewer on the metal skewers or SOAKED bamboo skewers. For the strawberries, hull and thread on the skewer so that the hulls will all be face down on the grill at one time. Using a silicone pastry brush (life and time saver!) brush the fruit with the syrup. Grill until there are pretty grill marks. This will take longer if you're going the Alton Brown route and using the last of the grill's heat.
For the Challah: Cut the bread into thick slices, about 3/4 inches. Brush one side of the bread with the simple syrup and place in a grill pan over medium high heat syrup side down. I used a flat lid from a smaller pot and two large cans to weight it down to ensure a great crust on the bread. After 2-3 minutes I brushed the other side of the bread, flipped, and replaced the lid and can apparatus. You end up with crunchy sweet toasted challah with pretty grill marks.
