Last night, I used my new LeCr grill pan and press and it came out awesome. I doubt I will be so lucky the next time.
(Sorry, not my Vitamix - have to get to WS first)
I plucked Lemon Thyme, Oregano, and French Basil from my Garden Window for the rub. I added some smoked paprika, garlic powder, and pepper to the rub.(I also have a few plants sprouting for my outside garden and then the Grow LIght goes away) I also plucked more basil and parsley for my potatoes)
I put the grill pan on one burner and the press on another burner on medium high (wanted to be sure the inside was cooked and not just burned on the outside.
I put the swordfish on the griddle and press on top and it was so moist and the grill marks made it even better.
I tossed in some goat cheese and pepper to the smashed potatoes (I almost always leave the skin in place) and put the parsley on top for color.
And on the salad - I added some more basil from my window garden.
There is hope for my presentation skills - although I didn't take a picture of the the plates - DH thought he was very special.
