We love using the grill in the summer. It creates a great smoky flavor, it allows you to get some fresh air, and it prevents you from using the oven.
At RecipeLion we have a great collection of grilling recipes that are perfect for the summer. Check out our Beer Can Chicken for one of the juiciest chicken recipes. The meat will fall right off the bone and on to your plate. And don’t forget about your side dishes. Check out our great Pouch Potatoes. Seasoned with dill and garlic, they’re delicious, and make for an easy clean up.
This brand new recipe, Cilantro Lime Grilled Shrimp, comes from our friends Kim and Ellen Grauer, also known as the Two Old Crabs. Easy to make, grill them up for your family and enjoy the fresh air. Shrimp recipes have never been so good.
