  • 1 carton raspberries
  • 1 cup chopped fresh coconut
  • 4 ounces feta, crumbled

Directions
For the rib-eye:

Combine all the ingredients and spread half over the top of steaks. Put plastic wrap over steaks and flip to coat other side with remaining gremolata. Wrap and let sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour. (Also can be done using a plastic resealable bag.) Flip steaks once while marinating.

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Grill steaks for 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Remove to a serving platter and let rest for at least 10 minutes.

For the cream sauce:

Grill poblano peppers until they are charred and soft. Remove to a cutting board and chop. Add them to a blender along with the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth

Transfer to a serving bowl.

For the salad:

Place watermelon slices on the grill until they get nice char marks. Remove to a cutting board and chop. Place the watermelon into a large bowl and add the raspberries, coconut and crumbled feta. In another bowl whisk the onion, vinegar, olive oil, vanilla salt, and cayenne to combine. Pour over the watermelon mixture, add mint, and toss.

For the onions:

In a medium saucepan over low heat, add the figs, balsamic vinegar and chili flakes. Simmer until it reduces by 1/3, then strain the vinegar into a medium bowl. Add the onions and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and let marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Place on the grill for a few minutes to char each side.

Serve rib-eyes with cream sauce, salad and glazed onions.
