Chef's Tips

There are two styles of grill baskets. Some are “wok-style” metal containers with holes in the sides and bottom and no tops. Others are similar to fish grill baskets- flat, two-sided grill baskets that open up to fill with food, then clamp shut. The wok-style grill baskets work best for this recipe; you may lose some of the smaller pieces of vegetables if you use the other kind.
