Preheat Oven to 350. Season some Flour with Salt & Pepper. In a bowl, coat wings one at a time and place on wire rack on baking sheet. Bake until crispy and add to large bowl. Drizzle wings with our Italian Herbs & Garlic  Oil (or any of our 5 great flavors) Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese and Toss Wings vigorously to fully coat in sauce.

Broiled Avocado Appetizer:

Preheat Oven to 350. Slice Avocado in half, remove pit. Scoop out some of the avocado, place small piece of Smoked Salmon or Prosciutto Ham in avocado hole. Crack an egg and separate a bit of the egg white, so egg will fit in avocado hole. Drizzle with our Italian Herbs & Garlic Oil and top with shredded Parmesan Cheese. Bake until egg is desired consistency. Remove from oven, drizzle with our Sweet Balsamic Vinaigrette and enjoy as an appetizer by the spoonful or spread on toast points.


Broiled Heirloom Tomatoes Appetizer:

In an oven safe ceramic dish, place halved Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes (Mixed Varieties) and season with Salt & Pepper. Drizzle with our Sundried Tomato Garlic Oil or Our Spicy Garlic Oil. Place in preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove dish and sprinkle with our Sweet Balsamic Vinaigrette and top with Mozzarella Cheese. Bake until Cheese is bubbling(place under broiler to brown off if desired). Serve with Crusty Italian loaf sliced in chunks for dipping.

Season with Salt & Pepper and cover with foil.Place dish in Preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil, baste with pan juices and return to oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Top with Grated Parmesan Cheese and garnish with green onion. Serve as side dish with Steak, Pork, or Chicken.


Food Truck Style Soft Tacos:

I like to make these two versions of Soft Tacos using a cast iron skillet(Regular pan will work too)

On the left is Spicy Shrimp Soft Tacos using our Spicy Garlic Oil. Just saute peeled, thawed shrimp in our Oil at high heat. Shrimp should be done in 5mins. Place Shrimp on warm, soft tortilla and add Sour Cream, Chopped Avocado & Tomato Salsa. Top with shredded Cheese and squeeze fresh lime to finish.

The other version of soft Taco is made with "Carne Picada"(chopped steak) sauted in our Spicy Oil with sliced onions, topped with cheese, sour cream, and one of our Delicious Hot sauces. I prefer our Chipotle Hot Sauce with this dish as it adds a nice sweet smoky flavor, but if you are brave-use our XXX Hot Habanero Hot Sauce. Wash it down with an ice cold Beer!


Quick & Delicious Shrimp Scampi:

Using an Oven safe ceramic dish(easy clean up) shake bottle of our Grove Gourmet Italian Herbs & Garlic Oil & drizzle in dish. Add Peeled raw Shrimp to dish and drizzle more Oil (Add a Splash of White Wine if desired). Add Bread crumbs and top with Parmesan Cheese. Broil or Bake in Preheated Oven for 8-10mins until browned. Remove from Oven and add a squeeze of fresh lemon on top(optional). Serve on a bed of pasta or make a Caprese Salad (recipe included in left column) Add in a loaf of italian bread and  a Bottle(or 2) of your favorite Wine...enjoy!
