Beat the Kitchen Heat With Easy Grilling Recipes

Summer and grilling go together like chocolate and peanut butter. They’re the perfect pair. No one wants to spend time cooking away in a hot kitchen so as the temperatures heat up, look to add more grilled recipes to your repertoire and you can beat the kitchen heat this summer!
Grilling isn’t just for brats and burgers anymore. You can make pretty much anything on the grill these days including fish, veggies and even desserts! Challenge yourself this summer to take a few recipes you’d normally throw in the oven and try them on the grill instead!

Looking for some inspiration? Here are some ideas:
Think fish! It’s easy to think about steak or chicken on the grill but fish can be a great healthy option as well! Try this Grilled Tilapia in Corn Husks or these Grilled Fish Tacos.

Move the oven outside. There are lots of things you traditionally make in oven during colder months that can be moved out to the grill. Think pizza or chicken sandwiches.
