Indian Grouper Tikka Recipe

The word tikka refers to small pieces of spicy pungent meat typically cooked in a tandoor (outdoor clay) oven.  The dish likely originated from northern India (Punjab) or Pakistan.

In our home, Bacon is basically a food group. I know better than to return home from a grocery run without some. Of all of the meats out there, in my opinion, it's the most versatile. Additionally, Mexican food seems to happen with some frequency in our kitchen, as well.  In fact, I think Mike…

In my opinion, Lamb and Spring go hand-in-hand. Most of the time when you think of lamb, you probably associate it with a beautiful rack served medium rare for Easter Dinner that took most of the day to prep. While there's nothing wrong with a rack of lamb, it just isn't the most conducive meal…
