Serves 8

Mixed Grill with Roasted Garlic-and-Pepper Salsa Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 5 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1-pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 pounds of bone-in chicken parts
  • 3 heads of garlic, halved crosswise
  • 6 ounces mixed small sweet and hot peppers, thinly sliced (2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 8 half-sour pickles (1 pound), halved lengthwise
  • 3 pounds assorted sausages
  • Lime wedges for serving

Mixed Grill with Roasted Garlic-and-Pepper Salsa Directions

  1. Light a grill. In a very large bowl, whisk the oregano and crushed red pepper with the 1/2 cup of olive oil and two tablespoons of lime juice. Toss the shrimp with a few tablespoons of the mixture in a medium bowl—season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the large bowl and toss to coat.
  2. On a sheet of heavy-duty foil, drizzle the garlic with oil; wrap tightly. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Grill the chicken and garlic packet over moderate heat, turning until the chicken is cooked through and the garlic is tender - about 40 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a platter; keep warm.
  3. Unwrap the garlic and let cool slightly, then squeeze the cloves into a medium bowl. Stir in the peppers, cilantro, and the remaining three tablespoons of lime juice.
  4. Brush the grill grates with oil. Arrange the shrimp, pickles, and sausages on the grill. Grill until the pickles are lightly charred and the shrimp are pink, 3 to 4 minutes; transfer to the platter. Grill the sausages for 10 minutes, turning, until well-browned all over and cooked through. Add them to the platter. Serve with the salsa and lime wedges.
