Healthy Grilled Meals You Can Make Quickly
Grilled Shrimp in Lettuce Leaves with Serrano-Mint Sauce
This recipe for Grilled Shrimp in Lettuce Leaves with Serrano-Mint Sauce from Bobby Flay is a real winner. It’s incredibly easy to make and the entire process will only take a half hour or so. Not too bad if you ask us!
The reviews for this recipe all emphasize just how easy the dish is, but many advocate for making the sauce less spicy and we think that that’s a wise move to make when you’re making food for the kids. You could swap the serrano chiles for something a little more mild or simply cut the recommended two chiles down to a single one.
Basically all you have to do is grill your shrimp, put them into lettuce leaves, drizzle wish sauce, and serve. A side of brown rice or quinoa makes it quick, easy, and healthy all around.
Chili Garlic Salmon and Broccoli Bowls
Maebells’ slogan is “simple living.” It just makes sense then that they’d share this recipe that is simply delicious. Their Chili Garlic Salmon and Broccoli Bowls are absolutely amazing and as their website notes, this dish is “packed with tangy Asian flavor, fresh broccoli and perfectly tender salmon [and] is an easy and healthy weeknight dinner ready in under 20 minutes!”
The recipe calls for cooking for salmon on a cast iron skillet, but as we all know, throwing it on the grill is the way to go! Their full write up even includes recommendations for how to plate and serve this dish, but you can trust us when we say that it’s so delicious that your whole family will be asking to have it on regular basis. Healthy, easy, and popular? It doesn’t get much better than that!
Garlic-Ginger Chicken Thighs
Is there anyone who knows more about a little location called Flavortown than Guy Fieri? We thought not, and his recipe for Garlic-Ginger Chicken Thighs has enough flavor to get you there and back easily. 8 ingredients is all it takes to knock this recipe out of the park.
One thing to keep in mind is that the ingredients will need to marinate, but if you can do a bit of prep work the night before and leave them in the fridge to soak up some flavor overnight then the actual grilling the next day will only take about 10 minutes. Be sure to left the chicken thighs rest for maximum effectiveness! The end result is something delicious and it could easily be served with a caesar salad to get some veggies in as well. Not too bad if you ask us.
