With Father's Day around the corner, I thought it prudent to share a few recipes for easy dishes that you can cook on the grill. Father's Day is the perfect day for a backyard gathering, as not only do dads love grilling, but celebrating the day has a more laid-back flair, compared to other 'holidays'.

This week, in addition to our top-quality cuts of beef, lamb and pork, Butcher Block will have fresh, never-frozen seafood. Treat dad to salmon, mussels and langoustines, in addition to a juicy New York strip or cowboy steak — talk about a modern take on surf and turf! Don't be intimidated by cooking seafood for a crowd. Our family-friendly butchers can easily fillet a side of salmon for you. Rub with our Private Label by Gregory Burrowes salmon seasoning, add some fresh herbs, and place on a cedar plank, which we sell in-store, and place on the grill and within 20 minutes you'll have a crowd-pleasing dish.

Mussels and langoustines don't need much fuss — sauté garlic, tomatoes and shallots in olive oil, add the molluscs or crustaceans to the pan with a splash of white wine, salt, cracked black pepper and a knob of butter. That's it, folks!

We also have fresh local blackberries in-store and, man, are they delicious! Besides making desserts, there are many things that you can do with these succulent and slightly tart berries. Add a handful to your favourite salad, make a compote to top baked brie, or make a savoury sauce to accompany grilled steak. Combine two cups fresh blackberries with two tablespoons red wine (we have a great selection from which to choose), a half tablespoon honey, a quarter cup of Private Label by Gregory Burrowes BBQ sauce, and two tablespoons rice vinegar. Simmer for 30 minutes, and you'll have a tangy, delicious sauce to drizzle over your perfectly grilled steaks.
