It’s no secret that summer is the perfect time to break out the barbecue and get your grill on. But unless you plan for it, plenty of barbecue recipes call for hours of marinating or whole afternoons of smoking. That’s all fine and delicious, but what about those evenings when you just want a quick and easy meal? We’ve got your back. Here are some of our favourite BBQ dishes, grilled to perfection and ready in a matter of minutes.
Grilled Salmon Steak with Hoisin BBQ Sauce
Tangy-sweet hoisin sauce turns mild salmon into a flavourful main. Simply steamed baby bok choy and hot brown rice are the only sides you’ll need (this meal is all about that salmon!).
The Best Beef Burger
The best burgers are juicy, flavourful and super-satisfying. This recipe checks all those boxes! Dijon, onion and Worcestershire sauce make the perfect seasoning for these delectable burgers.
25-Minute Grilled Pork Chops with Succotash
Forget the burgers and switch up your backyard barbecue with succulent grilled pork chops. They cook in no time, and make a complete meal when served with a summery side like succotash, made with fresh corn, ripe tomatoes and tender beans.
Barbecue Grilled Chicken
This chicken recipe involves lightly grilling the poultry with some salt and pepper before completely basting it in a homemade barbecue sauce that’s to die for. The best part is that the sauce itself takes mere minutes to whip up, but can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
BBQ Chicken Pizza with Spicy Slaw
If you have chicken thighs or breasts coated in BBQ sauce from last night’s dinner, put them to good use on top of pizza. A spicy slaw on the side rounds out the meal.
Horseradish Grill-Roasted Salmon
Moist salmon with a crispy crust is grilled to perfection in a matter of minutes with this simple dish that combines fresh dill, horseradish and a splash of vodka for a truly celebratory lunch or dinner. Add a side salad and you’ve got a nice, light summer meal.
