Smokey Barbecue Ribs
What is important is that you invited your family and friends over, you got to connect with them, your kids got to play and everyone had a good time. Prepare for them these delicious barbecue ribs and enjoy the day!
Sweet Soy-Glazed Grilled Salmon
The marinade is easy to throw together, the salmon gets caramelized on the grill, and the dreaded “fishy” taste is gone! Serve this with some brown rice and a green veggie, and you can celebrate doing a great thing for yourself.
Grilled Tri-Tip Steak with Molasses Chili Marinade
Tri-tip steaks are particularly popular in California, but the reputation of this tender and flavourful cut is gradually spreading eastward. It is a small triangle that is cut from the bottom sirloin and is similar to, or can be found under the name of triangle, Santa Maria, Newport or culotte steak. If none of these are available, flank steak can be substituted.
Grilled Fajita Skirt Steak
A sweet and spicy Fajita Steak Marinade mixture made with sweet bell peppers, spicy jalapeños, and fresh herbs. Then seared to perfection on the grill!
Grilled Tilapia and Lemon Garlic Green Beans
This is another idea what to cook for the July 4th: Grilled Tilapia with Green Beans. This is super healthy, low in calories, and tasty. We hope you’re staying healthy and keeping happy too.
Grilled Lobster with Garlic Parsley Butter
In this recipe, lobster is flash-grilled, then poached in its own shell in a pool of melted garlic-parsley butter. Enjoy the good food, the warm weather and celebrate the holiday with your dearest ones!
Pork and Apple Skewers with Orange Balsamic Glaze
Pork and apples together are such a terrific food pairing – and when they become tender and caramelized on the grill as they do in this recipe – the flavours are even better! But – what puts these pork and apple skewers over the top is the orange balsamic glaze that gets brushed on at the end, just before you take them off the grill.
