Santa Maria Grilled Garlic Bread
Intended to accompany grilled tri-tip.
- 10 tablespoons (1-1/4 sticks) salt butter
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
- 1 loaf French bread
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and parsley, and cook until the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
Cut the bread into diagonal 1/2" slices. Lightly brush some of the garlic butter onto both sides of each slice.
Set up the grill for medium heat, direct grilling with both a hot and cold (unheated) zone. When ready to cook, brush and oil the grate. Place the bread slices over the hot zone over the coals, and toast them until golden brown, 1-3 minutes per side. Keep an eye on them, so they don't burn.
