2017 Flavour Forecast Grilling Edition

Jumpstart Summertime and Try FIVE Sizzlin' Hot Flavour Ideas for the Grill

McCormick® Flavour Forecast™ 2017: GRILLING EDITION uncovers this season’s top must-grill trends

LONDON, ON, May 17, 2017 – McCormick Canada has released its annual McCormick® Flavour Forecast™ 2017: GRILLING EDITION. This grilling-centric report features five sizzling flavours and red-hot techniques that will take your backyard cooking to the next level – from seared Hawaiian poke to tangy white BBQ sauce and sticky sweet wings with bold black pepper.

This summer, reinvent BBQ classics like burgers, potatoes and wings with flavourful twists inspired by global tastes," said McCormick Executive Chef Juriaan Snellen. “Spice up BBQ chicken wings with a new sweet-heat sensation like a blackberry pepper sauce or add some zing to your potato and sausage hash with maple bacon seasoning and chipotle pepper cooked on a cast iron skillet for maximum sear."

The FIVE must-grill ideas from the McCormick® Flavour Forecast™ 2017: GRILLING EDITION include:

Next Level Korean BBQ Burgers –  Inspired by Tteokgalbi Korean beef patties, these burgers are loaded with layers of flavour. Swap marinated short rib for ground beef mixed with sesame, soy, honey and more. Then pile high with toppers like grilled kimchi and ginger garlic mayo.

  • GRILL IT: Korean BBQ Burger with Grilled Kimchi & Ginger Garlic Mayo

Backyard ‘Poke’ Shack – The Hawaiian raw seafood salad, poke, goes full-on grill. Sear fish or shrimp along with fresh summer veggies and fruits for smoky flavour. Throw in a bowl and mix with citrusy sweet ‘n spicy dressings.

  • GRILL IT: Hawaiian Grilled Tuna & Pineapple 'Poke', Grilled Tuna and Corn 'Poke' with Lime Crema, Grilled Sesame Garlic Shrimp 'Poke' with Pickled Radish & Rice

Cast Iron Spuds – Bored with your cold potato salad? Turn up the flame under old-school cast iron to create intense charred flavours in everything from loaded smashed potatoes to sausage and egg breakfast hashes.

  • GRILL IT: Smokehouse Maple Sausage and Egg Hash, Grilled & Loaded Smashed Potatoes, Charred Sweet Potatoes & Summer Vegetables 

White BBQ Sauce – We’re about to blow the cover on the south’s tangy little secret: white BBQ sauce. It’s a mayo based condiment (No tomatoes in sight!) that’s spooned over grilled or smoked chicken. Drizzle it on salad greens too, it’s craveable tang will leave you wanting more.

  • GRILL IT: McCormick’s White BBQ Sauce with Smoky Chicken

Peppered Sticky Sweet Wings – Bold black pepper teams up with ripe summer fruits like blackberries and peaches to create finger lickin’ grilled wings. Tossed in glaze then served with extra for dunking, this is one sweet-hot way to get the backyard party in full swing.

  • GRILL IT: Blackberry Pepper Wings, Peach Pepper Wings
