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.
