20 Great Grilled Seafood Recipes To Make This Summer
One of our favorite parts about a beach vacation is enjoying a delicious plate of seafood. Instead of waiting for your family vacation to eat seafood this year, try grilling some up in your own backyard to make every day feel like an afternoon by the beach. Grilling is one of the best ways to get flavorful food during the heat of summer. We will take any excuse to bypass turning on the oven, especially when it tastes this good. While we would never say no to BBQ chicken or steak on the grill, something about seafood gives the meal a light, summery feeling. Get inventive with your seafood combinations with fun recipes like our Grilled Sallop-and-Mango Salad or our Sausage-and-Shrimp Pizzas with Spinach-Basil Pesto.
