Birch River Grill Brings Picnic Fare to WGN-TV

It's summer, and that means it's perfect weather for a picnic. John Ayaleanos, executive chef of Birch River Grill (75 W. Algonquin Rd., Arlington Heights; 847-427-4242), demonstrated how to prepare the perfect summer picnic meal today during WGN-TV's Noon News. Chef John's Grilled and Chilled Cajun Shrimp is a perfect light dish for an afternoon meal in the fresh air, and paired with Chef John's corn relish, the dish brings seasonal vegetables into the mix for not only a tasty but healthy picnic.

Chef John, with the help of WGN anchor Micah Materre, showed the versatility of the dish. Served warm off the grill or chilled for a picnic, the Grilled and Chilled Cajun Shrimp is perfect for a midsummer picnic.
