Grilled Polenta

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Corn Grits
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 6 Cups Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Method

Step 1

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the water and salt. Bring just to a boil then reduce the heat to low.

Step 2

Gradually whisk in the polenta with EVOO. Continue whisking for 2 minutes, or until the mixture begins to tighten up.

Step 3

Rub a 10-inch springform pan with Olive Oil then use a rubber spatula to spread the hot polenta in the pan, smoothing out the top.

Step 4

Set aside to cool for 30 minutes, or until the polenta reaches room temperature. Cover the cooled polenta with plastic wrap then refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to a day to set.

Step 5

Preheat a grill to 400°F. Lightly oil the grill and brush each side of the polenta with olive oil. Carefully place the polenta pieces onto the hot grill. Grill for 5 minutes on each side, or until nicely seared and golden in color. Serve hot.
