Simple and Delicious Summer Grilling Recipes

With summer just about here, it’s time to cue the barbecue. If you love to grill, you’re in luck: warmer weather offers all sorts of opportunities to turn up the heat and impress your taste buds. There are tons of simple and delicious recipes to choose from. Here are some of our favorites:

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Hawaiian chicken kabobs give you a little taste of paradise from your back deck. Made with onion, bell pepper, marinated chicken, and pineapple, they offer a savory mix of meaty and sweet. These kabobs are quick and easy to make and a dish you’ll want to say Aloha to again and again.

Grilled Mahi-Mahi 

Grilled mahi-mahi is a prime selection if you’re fishing for something different from the traditional barbecue fare. The lemon and lime aioli helps this dish make a name for itself, enhancing the flavors and adding a seasonal zest. Preparing this dish is nowhere near as time-consuming as actual fishing; you can catch a bite in roughly 25 minutes.

Chicken and Ranch Burger

If you’re like many people, this recipe had you at “ranch.” The chicken and ranch burger puts a new spin on a grilled chicken sandwich. Made with ground chicken, bread crumbs, garlic, parmesan cheese, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and plenty of ranch, it’s a tasty option for those who believe salad dressing deserves more than lettuce.

Mexican Grilled Corn

Music festivals and street fairs allow you to enjoy Mexican grilled corn and so does your backyard. Made with mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, parmesan cheese, and chili powder, it’s a spicy dish that’s easy to throw together and even easier to enjoy. In other words, lend this recipe your ears. 

Yakitori Salmon with Scallions and Zucchini

Yakitori-style salmon with scallions and zucchini borrows the sweet and salty flavors of yakitori (typically made with chicken) to create a salmon dish that’s healthy, fast, and sure to give you bragging rights in front of your dinner guests. Top it off with scallions, zucchini, and whatever vegetables you want (or, if your kids have a say, no vegetables at all).

You don’t have to be a genius on the grill to perfect these recipes. They’re quintessential summertime dishes, requiring little effort for some “great” grub.
