I love the idea of an indoor grill. They’re really convenient, especially for quick meals, or for times of the year where you want to grill something but can’t do it outside.

Chapters in this book include:

  • Appetizers
  • Salads And Side Dishes
  • Sandwiches
  • Burgers
  • Main Entrees: Beef
  • Main Entrees: Chicken And Turkey
  • Main Entrees: Fish And Seafood
  • Main Entrees: Pork, Lamb And Veal
  • Desserts

The beginning of the book contains grilling tips, cooking temperatures and times, and some basic information about using an indoor grill. Each chapter includes an index of the recipes it contains. There aren’t many photos in this cookbook, but the ones that are in it are very appealing. The recipes are straightforward and easy to follow. What I would find helpful is cooking time to be highlighted instead of having to look for it, also including prep time would be helpful too. Recipes that I’d try first include Lowfat Potato Pancakes, Grilled Salisbury Steak, Weekday Barbecued Chicken, Southern Fried Chicken, Chicken Nuggets, Four Ingredient Chicken, and Hawaiian Style Pork. This cookbook would be great for anyone that likes the convenience of the indoor grill and is looking for some additional recipes and ideas to put to use. It would also pair well with an indoor grill if you’re giving one as a gift.

Here’s a recipe for Shrimp Satay, taken from page 29.
