Editor’s Note: As Robin Leach invests family time in La Jolla, Calif., after returning to the United States from his annual Italian travels, numerous of our Strip characters have actually stepped forward in his absence to pen their words of wisdom.
We continue today with “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace acrobat Alexa Hukari, who found love up in the air with hubby Ming Hukari, and celebrity chef Barry Dakake at the star-studded N9NE Steakhouse in the Palms. Right here’s Barry as he steps from behind the grill at work to discover peace and cool on his patio area in your home:
Summer cooking is everything about working with fresh ingredients that can be prepared rapidly.
When July melts its way into August, the summer harvest is at its peak. As the weather condition remains to get warmer, there are numerous tasty reasons to delight in cooking throughout the most plentiful season.
Right now, the grill takes spotlight. I recommend barbecuing marinated fresh Alaskan halibut, scallops, New England lobster, steaks and chops. A simple fast marinade includes extra virgin olive oil, thinly sliced shallots, very finely sliced garlic, broken pepper and the season’s freshest herbs.
A few of my favorite grilled vegetables that howl summertime include heirloom tomatoes, sunburst squash, infant zucchini, squash flowers, sweet corn, eggplant, green beans, asparagus, bell peppers, beets and endive.
The caramelizing flames highlight the natural tastes in these veggies, and the touch of smoke from the grill improves the taste. (I enjoy barbecuing with different fruitwood). Making great kebobs, cut proteins and vegetables in 1-inch cubes and marinate. Skewer some kebobs and let that fruitwood and fire do its work.
I like to pop open a bottle of 2012 Blindfold by Prisoner Wine Co. and rest on my patio area while grilling and relaxing.
On those starry-skied summer season nights when you ‘d rather let me put on the chef coat, I extremely advise you attempt some of N9NE’s most popular dishes:
Fresh Dover: Sole, simply sauteed and sprinkled with fresh lemon and extra-virgin olive oil. You can really experience the best taste on your taste buds with the simplicity of the seasoning.
Barry’s Steak: This 10-ounce prime rib cap is marinated in extra-virgin olive oil, sliced up shallots and garlic, then grilled with a small char to boost the flavor and topped with roasted shishito peppers and cipollini onions. If a steak is called after me, you understand it’s got ta be really tasty!
Organic Roasted Fire Chicken: Served with Fresno Chili, jalapeno peppers and a tip of lemon. This dish literally melts in your mouth!
Colorado lamb chops: Half-rack, sauteed with a parmesan pine nut crust and doned with red wine rosemary jus. This is such a staple dish that this recipe has actually never altered.
Some More S’mores: Among our bestselling desserts served together with pistachio-, raspberry- and orange-flavored house-made marshmallows and white, milk and chocolate ganache-covered graham crackers served along with skewers and open hibachi-style flame.
Being a Rhode Island native, I raiseded consuming the best lobster and fish from the Atlantic Ocean. I have numerous fond memories of going to the beach this time of year with my family and later on cracking open fresh lobsters in the beach home kitchen area.
The only part about this I always did not like was the mess it left behind, so at N9NE we make it easy for you and take the lobster out of its shell serving our signature browse and grass in a lazy man’s design type of way (no shell, laying carefully on a filet mignon sprinkled with truffle aioli and doned with red wine sauce.)
I could not discuss N9NE without pointing out a few of our current star visitors: Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, Macklemore, Adrien Brody, Steve Lawrence, Jerry Lewis, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Chris Weidman, Chuck Zeto, Jenna Marbles, Vince Neil and Nicolas Cage.
You are simply as essential to me, so come go to at N9NE– and I’ll treat you like a VIP, too!
