Romanian Grilled Minced Meat Rolls (MICI) are great when grilled, but you could roast or pan-fry. Serve hot with good Italian bread and mustard accompanied by a cold beer. It is great for backyard parties. My friends just love it !
The nice thing about this recipe is that the dish doesn't taste burnt even though you can get a nice blackened look. The sugar and the thyme caramelize and give it a wonderful flavor. All my friends love it.
This is the most fun you can have with your seafood. It started with the idea of a fun get-together clam bake then took off with a life of its own. This recipe is a general guide. Have fun, mix and match your favorite seafood. I would ask your fish monger what is fresh, and then decide what seafood to add. I've even added a whole octopus before. Serve with a nice white wine, turn on some music and have fun. Great outdoor meal.
