When a warm summer night entices you to dine outdoors, try these healthy barbecue ideas with a Mediterranean twist. Classic ingredients like sweet basil, charred tomato, pungent olives, and tangy balsamic vinegar awaken the palate. Invite your friends, fire up the grill, and enjoy this savory feast.
Grape leaves prevent the fish from sticking to the grill while keeping it tender and moist. Branzino is a variety of sea bass; if you can't find it, you can substitute whole trout.
Fennel tastes best thinly sliced. Serve it flat on a plate and topped with a savory mix of blood oranges and just a few oil-cured olives, roughly chopped to give the illusion of volume.
