1. Grilled Grouper
A delightful flaky fish grilled grouper has a delicious kick from my Cajun seasoning and a beautiful floral note from my herbs de Provence. Though grouper is not a very common fish like salmon or tuna, it has a remarkable texture and a mild, slightly sweet flavor.
Grilling this fish brings out more of the sweetness and pairs perfectly with the smokey, char taste!
2. Cowboy Ribeye Steak
What sounds better off the grill than a tasty, juicy, grilled cowboy ribeye steak?! Ribeye steaks are made for the grill, and my steak seasoning will have your mouth watering in seconds!
Grill your cowboy ribeye steak to the perfect temperature and watch your loved ones eat it all up! Pair with your favorite potato dish and a delicious grilled vegetable, and you have a perfect dinner!
3. Grilled Lamb Chops
Going for something a bit different, grilled lamb chops set a new bar to try and top! My luscious grilled lamb chops are a perfect summer dish that will make everyone want a tasty chop!
Spring and summer are the seasons for delicious, fresh lamb to shine! My recipe uses an herb-forward seasoning that provides a fresh taste to the lamb.
What a summer classic grilled brats are, perfectly scrumptious and juicy with a burst of flavor! The mustard, the sauerkraut, all the different textures, and flavors, plus, who doesn’t love bratwursts on a nice summer’s day?
Much more complex in flavor than a hot dog, bratwursts give so much flavor on their own. All the delicious toppings, and if you enjoy a bit of beer, I also have a beer simmer option in this recipe!
5. Grilled Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
Craving some pasta with some grilled flair, grilled chicken fettuccine alfredo will hit the spot! Hearty, creamy, and obviously tasty, you cannot go wrong with this dish!
My grilled chicken fettuccine alfredo recipe is simple to make and doesn’t require anything more than your everyday ingredients!
6. Grilled Haddock
Slightly sweet and super tasty, grilled haddock is a beautiful recipe to have in your back pocket for a rainy day! Haddock is typically used in fish and chips because of the flakiness of the fish, which makes it very desirable.
While haddock has a mild flavor, it takes on flavors very well, which is why I prepare mine with dill. I also like to pair grilled haddock with an incredible lemon cream sauce!
7. Marinated Grilled Pork Chops
Marinated grilled pork chops, nothing sounds better when having a delicious picnic or a poolside lunch! Savory soy sauce, tangy mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar - my marinade is perfection!
8. Hawaiian Burger
What says summer more than a Hawaiian burger topped with tasty teriyaki sauce and fresh grilled pineapple? So many different flavors and textures, but this meal is so easy to make!
Homemade teriyaki sauce, grilled pineapple, a juicy burger, and a fluffy brioche bun all combine to be a match made in heaven!
9. BBQ Bacon Wrapped Brussel Sprouts
One of my favorite recipes, BBQ bacon-wrapped brussel sprouts, is so unique and oh-so-delicious! Tasty little morsels that you can eat all day, along with some gorgeous grilled steaks or pork chops!
Easy to make and with only a few ingredients, my BBQ bacon-wrapped brussel sprouts have so much flavor!
10. Grilled Bok Choy
When you think of firing up the grill, bok choy may not be the first thing to come to mind. Once you try the tender, perfectly charred leaves and flavorful Asian dipping sauce, it will quickly become a new favorite!
11. Grilled Yellow Squash
Fresh grilled summer squash paired with a sprinkle of garlic salt, this dish needs to be your go-to side! It's ready to eat in minutes and tastes great with pork, beef, chicken, seafood, and more!
12. Grilled BBQ Chicken Breast
A classic with a tasty twist, this grilled BBQ chicken breast will have your taste buds in a frenzy! The BBQ sauce caramelizes over the chicken to create a gorgeous dish!

22. Grilled Spatchcock Turkey
The skin of this spatchcocked turkey crisps up beautifully on the grill while the meat remains succulent and tender. It is dry-brined overnight so that it doesn't lose any moisture on the grill.
23. Grilled Prime Rib
Not only is this grilled prime rib absolutely delicious, but the leftover prime rib (if there is any) can be used in so many wonderful recipes! All you need is a prime rib roast, my simple prime rib rub, and a little oil.
24. Grilled Acorn Squash
Acorn squash is a delicious and nutritious side dish that is best when it is in season during the fall and winter. Serve it alongside beef, pork, fish, or chicken!
25. Grilled Lamb Shanks
These lamb shanks are so tender that you can pull the meat right off the bone. I like to marinate them overnight so all of the delicious flavors have time to absorb into the meat.

30. Grilled Boneless Chicken Thighs
Chicken thighs have so much more flavor than chicken breasts, and the meat is buttery and succulent. It absorbs all of that flame-kissed flavor that you can only achieve when grilling meat.
31. Grilled Corn on the Cob
I love a side dish you can cook on the grill alongside the main course. Slather some grilled corn on the cob in garlic butter, and it will hold its own against even the most delicious grilled meats!
32. Grilled Cajun Aligator Bites
33. Grilled T-Bone Steak
The bone in a T-bone steak gives the meat extra flavor, which is highlighted even more by grilling it just right. All it takes is a great steak and a little of my easy DIY steak seasoning!
34. Grilled Mahi Mahi
This grilled mahi mahi only takes 15 minutes to prepare, and you can serve it with so many tasty side dishes! It's a very mild fish that lends itself well to a variety of flavors!

Best Grill Recipes: Grilled Cowboy Ribeye Steak (+More Great Dishes!)
- Set your steak out an hour ahead of time so it can come to room temperature (this helps it cook evenly). Preheat your grill to high heat. As it heats up, place your steak on a large platter and season thoroughly with steak seasoning, rubbing it in on all sides. Do not season until right before you put them on the grill (*see note).
- Once your grill is hot, transfer over your seasoned steak. Cook them for 4-6 minutes per side for medium-rare, or longer if desired (*see note).
- Remove the steak from the grill and transfer it to a cutting board or plate. If using the optional butter (or garlic herb compound), add a pat on top of the steak. Loosely tent a piece of foil over top.
- Then, allow them to rest for a minimum of 5 minutes before serving, but ideally for half the amount of time they were grilled (i.e.: 12 minutes on the grill, rest for 6 minutes).
Equipment You May Need
- The USDA suggests any steak be at least 145°F (63°C)to be considered 'safe'. Keep in mind that once removed from heat, a steak will continue to cook another 5°F (this is referred to as 'carryover cooking'). Other levels of doneness are as follows:
- Rare: 125°F-120°F (52°C-54°C)
- Medium-rare: 130°F-135°F (54°C-57°C)
- Medium: 135°F-145°F (57°C-63°C)
- Medium well: 145°F-155°F (63°C-68°C)
- Well-done: 155+°F (68+°C)
- Remember that your steaks will continue to cook when removed from heat and during the resting time. This 'carryover cooking' typically increases the final temperature by about 5°F.
- This resting time is another way to ensure that your meat is juicy. Heat relaxes the muscle fibers in the meat and the liquids (juices) are much more likely to run onto your plate and result in a not-as-good-as-it-could be steak.
