Summer Street Food, Sicilian-Style

“This is the best time of year for the produce that fits Sicilian food,” says Chef Craig Richards of St. Cecilia in Atlanta, Georgia, says. “They are simple but creative dishes, with big flavors and locally-grown ingredients.”

St. Cecilia began a street food option on the menu this summer, but in staying true to its style, the restaurant is definitely putting a glamorous spin on it. Take the Spiedini, for example. In Sicily, simple skewers of grilled fish might be served steps away from the fishing docks, but St. Cecilia presents a more elegant option atop salsa verde.

While you can’t replicate the wonderful experience of a summer meal at St. Cecilia, you can replicate the flavors of the Sicilian-style summer dish. Grilling is always the way to go this season.
