10 Great Grilling Recipes

If you’ve been keeping up with us over the last month, you know that we are “Chasing BBQ” this summer. However, summer isn’t just for BBQ…Monday is the unofficial kick off to the grilling season. So, fire up the grill and toss on some of these summer feast favorites!

1. Grilled Pineapple & Avocado Dip

A chips and dip combo is classic. This fun twist features grilled pineapple, avocado, and our southwestern inspired Lodo Red Adobo seasoning.

Bonus: It’s also great for topping a Jamaican Jerk Burger!

2. Bacon-Wrapped Bajan Jalapeno Poppers

When it comes to a hot bite, this jalapeno means business. An herby, cheesy filling is just the right complement for smoky bacon and spicy jalapeno.

3. Peruvian Turkey Burgers

It’s just not possible to talk about grilling without mentioning burgers. This customer submitted recipe features one of our best-selling blends, Peruvian Chile Lime Seasoning. It’s saucy and delicious, a sure-fire crowd pleaser.

4. Grilled Steak Salad

If you haven’t grilled your salad yet, you’re missing out. Briefly grilling romaine makes it just a bit more tender, while onions and pepper grilled in a foil packet add a little sweetness and grilled zucchini and steak add a little char. It’s the best of every ingredient and a fun way to liven up your summer salads.

5. Santa Maria Steak & Potato Skewers

Seasoned with a classic California rub, these skewers are perfect right off the grill, at room temperature, or as leftovers straight from the fridge (if there are any leftovers!). You could even toss the potatoes with dressing for a hearty potato salad.

6. Citrus Marinated Shrimp Skewers

It’s not all about meat and potatoes – this recipe is a great way to welcome summer. It’s easy to scale up if you’re serving a crowd and can be paired with anything from couscous to a green salad for a complete meal.

7. Caribbean Grilled Fish Tacos with Lime Crema

Whether it’s Taco Tuesday or a lazy Saturday afternoon, this recipe is a fun twist on a restaurant favorite. Who knew a great fish taco was only 30 minutes away?!

8. Moroccan Grilled Vegetable Platter

This recipe is proof that a gluten-free, vegetarian recipe can be delicious. Serve it as a side dish for a potluck or with skewers as a DIY veggie kabob. The Moroccan Lemon Yogurt Dip is an essential to round out the recipe (and it's good with pita chips too!)

9. Grilled Watermelon “Caprese” Wedges with Pomegranate Molasses Vinaigrette

It could be a salad(ish), or maybe an appetizer, and it might even be dessert. Whatever it is, it’s worth making! Grilling watermelon causes some of the water content to evaporate, concentrating the sweetness which then pairs with the tart flavor of the vinaigrette. The resulting dish is sweet, tangy, salty and fresh – something you’re sure to come back to again and again.

10. Grilled Spiced Peaches

Like the grilled watermelon, this is savory enough to be an appetizer or snack but also sweet enough to be dessert. This cheesy, peachy bite of goodness was one of our favorite things to come out of the test kitchen last summer – it was hard to keep our resident tasters away long enough to snap some good photos!

To some, summer means smoked pork and Chasing BBQ. Others relish in showcasing the best offerings from the local farmer’s market. And some just like to fire up the grill. Let us know how you eat by submitting a recipe or telling us what you love through a recipe review.
