End of Summer Grilling Recipes!

By The Paula Deen Test Kitchen

As the month of August nears its end, we all feel that end of summer push.  Maybe it’s a last weekend getaway to the beach or a few extra days off to work in the garden or lounge in the sun by the pool.  Whatever it is you choose, that need to take advantage of every sunny day and warm evening is something we all feel.  A great way to enjoy the end of summer is with an outdoor BBQ.  Nobody wants to cook outside on a chilly winter night, so get that grill going at least one more time and cook up some of these delicious Paula Deen summertime favorites:

Chicken on the Grill Crispy smoky skin with delicious and juicy meat, this is the perfect dish to feed a family.  Take advantage of the last peaches of summer and make Paula’s grilled peach salad to go along side.  Keep it all on the grill and fix up some grilled potatoes to round out the meal.  A simple and hearty summer dinner.

Grilled NY Strip Tease A wonderful cut of tender and juicy steak served with a decedent red wine sauce, your friends will be so impressed.  Add some vegetables with Paula’s truffle potato and carrot puree, and it’s a perfect meal.

Cedar Plank Salmon with Wasabi Dip Cedar planks are a great way to grill fish with no worries of it sticking to the grates.  The wasabi dip gives this fish a real kick.  Keep with the Asian theme and serve it with Paula’s broccoli cole slaw made with crunchy ramen noodles and Asian-inspired seasoning.

Grilled Boneless Sirloin with Vidalia Onions Deliciously seasoned steak on a skewer with sweet grilled onions is a great combination.  Coal roasted sweet potatoes cook right in the hot coals of your grill or on the grate and will go wonderfully with the skewers.  Toss up a corn and asparagus salad and dinner is done.

Tuna Steaks with Lemon Pepper Butter Meaty tuna steaks smothered in creamy and fresh lemon butter over a piece of grilled bread, this is not your average sandwich.  Give this meal a real kick and serve it with some Creole french fries.  Round it all out with some of Paula’s easy grilled vegetables.

Jerk Shrimp Kebobs Full of flavoring from the jerk seasoning this is shrimp like you have never had it.  Balanced out with the sweetness from the tomato and bell peppers this is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.  Mix up a batch of creamy and cheesy tomato grits on the side and there you have a twist on the classic.

Thanks so much for the tip on freezing herbs. I have a good variety of herbs and the last few years I've picked and dried them for the winter.THis sounds like a great alternative.

Dear Paula, my name is Lil I just want to drop you a letter to let you know my prayers are with you. I am sorry that you are going through this right now but I also know that we have trials and tribulations that we have to go through. I have always told everyone that you are my long lost grandmother. My grandma died the year I was born and I have adopted several women who have had a major inffluence in my life who I call grandma. I am a black woman. I cook well because of my Mom and Aunt Mary but I cook great because of you. I love you Paula Deen! You make me a star. I just made your cornucopia salad, your "not your mommas banana pudding" and your cornbread saladWe all say Inappropriate things and I am sure your friend is willing to forgive you as long as you are willing to make the proper restitution that is due her. You are a role model Paula Deen and unfortunately for you, you are held at a higher standard. It is not o.k for you to use the N word, nor is it o.k. For you to forget the little people. I will continue to support you because you are my long lost grandmother

Dear Paula and Sons, I have loved your show forever - lived in beautiful So Carolina and still miss it today; there was a local special called "Chicken Stew" (in the Laurens area) that a wonderful lady, Ms. Moore, used to make for my late husband and me and it was FABULOUS!, Her recipe used her own "colored bowls" as sizes for 'taters, onions, corn, sweet milk along with ingredients and I could NEVER get it to come out right! The local stores also sold it by quarts - fantastic!! Wondering if you know about this great dish and if so, do you have the recipe to share? I miss little Laurens, South Carolina so much every day - wishing I could come back there in a year or so when I am retired. Love you Paula!!!

I just love all your recipes. My Momma came from the south and I recognize so many of the things you make. I am happy for your climb to fame and don't let this mess that the media has blown out of proportion get to you girl. I'm 68 and have been though some adversities in my time too, so I totally understand. It seems when someone makes good, there is always someone looking to take you down. It happened to Martha Stewart and she rose like a pheonix out of the ashes. They just can't keep a good,smart woman down. Love those gooey butter cakes. Have you ever heard of cheese egg. That's what Momma used to call it. Love you, take care and fight those trouble makers to the ground. Cher. in Wisconsin. Who adores your shows and is hoping you will find another outlet so I can see more.
