Grilled leeks are a culinary preparation in which fresh leeks are cooked on a grill, typically over an open flame or on a barbecue. To prepare grilled leeks, the leeks are often cleaned and trimmed to remove the root ends and any tough outer leaves. They are then typically brushed with oil and seasoned with herbs, salt, and pepper before being placed on the grill. The leeks are grilled until they become tender and develop charred grill marks, which add a smoky flavor and a pleasant caramelization. Grilled leeks can be served as a side dish, added to salads, or used as a flavorful ingredient in various recipes. They offer a unique combination of smokiness and the leek’s natural sweetness.
