5 Tips

for your next

BARBECUE G

et out on your deck and enjoy a delicious meal with friends and family and your grill favourites. John Thomson, Canada's national barbecue champion, shares his tips and tricks to make sure your next feast is easy, fun and delicious.

pick the best cuts of meat To prepare the best dishes, you need to start with the right cuts of meat.

Always look for pieces that have some marbling to them. Fat serves two purposes, adding both flavour and moisture to the meat.

As it melts, fat moisturizes the meats. When the drippings hit the hot coals underneath, you add a different level of flavour. Try the Real Canadian Superstore, they carry a large selection of grilling meat, cut fresh from AAA beef, including the line of PC Free From meats that are raised without the use of antibiotics or added hormones.

brine your meats Dry-brine your steak by sprinkling kosher salt over each side, then put it on a wire rack and let it sit in the fridge for two hours prior to cooking. 1/2 tsp of kosher salt per pound of meat is a good ratio. Pork and chicken can be wet-brined for a couple of hours in a simple brine of 4 liters of cold water, 3/4 cup of kosher salt and 2/3 cup of sugar. To increase flavour, add herbs and spices. >>>

11


outdoor

keep rubs simple Thomson's simple go-to rub is four parts salt, two parts granulated garlic and one part black pepper. This versatile rub is great on all your classic barbecue meats and is especially good on beef. It's also a great base if you want to develop your own rubs; simply add other ingredients like cumin, sugar, coriander seed, chili powder and ground thyme.

try the reverse sear technique Cook slowly and then finish on a hot grill to ensure you have tender, flavourful and eye-catching meat. Thomson calls this the reverse sear, and it's a technique that is starting to catch on.

use the right tools You don't need gadgets and gizmos, just a solid pair of barbecue tongs, a long-handled spatula and an instant-read thermometer. THN www.newscanada.com

SalmonTROUT WITH SPIRALIZED ZUCCHINI, ASPARAGUS & TOMATO EN PAPILLOT SERVES

2

B

aking fish in parchment allows for the flavours to really concentrate. The steam helps to make a perfect sauce and the cleanup is minimal! I often make this when I need an easy dinner for 2 or 4.

Step FIVE

Ingredients 3/4 pound of skinless rainbow trout or salmon, one piece 2 zucchinis, spiralized or 2 cups prespiralized zucchini

Directions Step ONE On the work surface, lay the sheet of parchment paper lengthwise. The piece of parchment should be about 4 times the length of the fish. Step TWO Using the lower half of the parchment paper, lay down the spiralized zucchini (this will be the “bed� for the fish). Tuck about half the tomatoes slices and half the red chili rounds in the zucchini noodles. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of the oil, about 1 tsp of the balsamic, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

1/2 of a fresh long red chilli, sliced in rounds 6 campari tomatoes, each sliced into 3-4 rounds 1/2 bunch of asparagus, ends removed and stalks cut in half 1 tsp sea salt, divided Freshly ground black pepper to taste 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1 tbsp aged balsamic vinegar

Step THREE Lay the fish fillet on top of the spiralized zucchini and tomato bed. Step FOUR Drizzle a small amount of the oil on the fish and season with salt and pepper.

Serving Suggestion: I like to serve this over a bed of brown rice, quinoa, or millet.

Distribute the remainder of tomatoes, red chili rounds and all the asparagus spears on top of the fish. Step SIX Drizzle the contents of the package with the remainder of the oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Step SEVEN Fold the upper half of the parchment paper over the vegetable/fish mound (you should leave enough space around the food to allow the air to expand and circulate). Starting from one corner, make a fold in the parchment, staple that fold together. Make very tight, closely overlapping little folds starting from one corner and work your way around, towards the opposite corner. Fold the last fold over itself and staple this fold to itself and then a few of the folds along the parchment paper. Place the package on a cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes. Step EIGHT Cut the package open and either slide the contents onto a plate or serve directly from the open parchment (you can cut away the top flap and staples).

Renegotiating your

MORTGAGE? There's so much to think about when renegotiating your mortgage. You may be shopping around for the best rate, you may have to pay fees to switch lenders, and your bank will likely offer you a readvanceable mortgage.

Some banks bundle other financial products, like car loans or credit cards, together under a readvanceable mortgage — a term mortgage combined with a home equity line of credit. This is typically offered at an attractive interest rate. While a readvanceable mortgage has its benefits, be aware of the fees that apply and the risks of tying different credit products together before signing on the dotted line. HELOC debt is different than other forms of debt. Unlike a credit card or unsecured line of credit, a HELOC is secured by using your home as collateral. While HELOC interest rates are often lower than other forms of credit, they are variable. At any time, banks can demand that you repay your HELOC or increase your interest rate. If you can't pay back the money you owe, you may lose your home or have no choice but to sell it.

Compared to a home equity loan — a lump sum loan with a fixed interest rate, term and repayment schedule — a HELOC works more like a credit card. Your available balance decreases as you borrow and increases as you pay it back, up to a certain credit limit. Some HELOC credit limits increase automatically as you pay down your mortgage. To switch lenders the next time your mortgage is up for renewal, you may first need to repay all credit products tied together under your readvanceable mortgage. And there are additional legal fees you wouldn't incur when moving a traditional mortgage. When deciding your strategy, think longterm. Are you planning to use your home's equity to fund your retirement? How long do you plan on staying in your home? How will you use your HELOC — for renovations, to invest, to consolidate higher interest debt, for emergencies, for a second home, for a vacation? How would interest rate hikes, job loss or illness impact your ability to repay your debt? Would a HELOC tempt you to use your home like an ATM? If a HELOC is the right product for you, stick to a plan to pay it off fully and avoid continually borrowing against your home's equity. Learn more online at canada.ca/it-pays-to-know.

How to

e z i m o t s Cu DESIGN TRENDS for your home Cobalt U8 Century Paint from Benjamin Moore


E

ach year we are presented with new and innovative trends in design and home décor. But many of us often wonder how to translate these daring styles into our own homes for livability.

Here, SHARON GRECH, Benjamin Moore colour and design expert, shares her tips for incorporating bold trends into your home.

touch of velvet While you may remember velvet as a popular mid-century fabric, it has recently made a resurgence in home décor. Known for its distinctively smooth, rich texture, velvet is a popular way to make a space look and feel luxurious.

Wild Caraway U3 Century Paint from Benjamin Moore

Açaí R8 Century Paint from Benjamin Moore

“Whether you want to invest in a striking velvet sofa or velvet accent pillows, either option will add that sophisticated feel to a space. Another great way to incorporate velvet into a room is by using premium, soft-touch matte paint on a feature wall,” suggests Grech. Benjamin Moore Century is a first of-its-kind paint that creates a tactile experience, similar to that of a soft leather glove. Bedrooms, dining rooms and powder rooms are all great spaces to consider making a bold statement with a feature wall.

gorgeous geometrics When it comes to geometric shapes and patterns, a little can go a long way, so you want to ensure the pattern isn't competing with other elements in the space. Incorporate this trend without going overboard by using accents. Backsplashes are the perfect place to be daring with geometric patterns. Kitchens and bathrooms are ideal for adding geometry in design as they contain relatively small and focused areas. If you are looking for an option that requires a little less commitment, try incorporating accessories with a geo structure or pattern. Geometric-inspired coffee tables and mirrors can emulate that same modern look without having to make a big commitment in your space or budget. >>>

marvelous metals Gone are the days of choosing between silver and gold. We've expanded our metallic palette to include even more metals like chrome, rose gold, copper and brass. The art of mixing metals and metallic tones is being applied in details throughout the entire home to add depth and intrigue into a space.

“METALS ARE NO LONGER RESERVED FOR FAUCETS AND FIXTURES,” says Grech. “One of the reasons I love this trend is because of its adaptability. Metals complement so many different hues, which make them easy to add into a space and coordinate with existing décor.” Find more information at www.benjaminmoore.ca. www.newscanada.com
