4 Outdoor Grilling Recipes To Try This Spring


As the days grow longer and the weather warms, outdoor dining becomes irresistible. Spring offers the perfect backdrop for exploring bold flavors. Whether you’re aiming to master the art of outdoor cooking or looking to add some new recipes to your repertoire, the season is ripe for culinary adventure. Fire up your grill for these four outdoor grilling recipes to try this spring.

1. Honey Sriracha Grilled Shrimp

For a sweet and spicy twist on grilled shrimp, try this honey sriracha marinade. In a bowl, whisk together honey, sriracha sauce, lime juice, and minced garlic. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Let marinate for 15–20 minutes, then thread the shrimp onto skewers. Grill the shrimp over medium-high heat for 2–3 minutes per side, until pink and slightly charred. Enjoy!

2. Grilled Vegetable Skewers

Grilled vegetable skewers are a healthy and flavorful option for any outdoor meal. To make them, simply chop up your favorite vegetables (such as zucchini, bell peppers, and onions) into bite-sized pieces. Thread them onto skewers, brush with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.

Grill the veggies over medium-high heat for 8–10 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender and lightly charred. Opt for metal skewers or soak wooden skewers in water beforehand to prevent burning.

3. Grilled Beef Fajitas

Grilled beef fajitas are a sizzling delight. Begin by marinating thinly sliced beef (flank or skirt steak works best) in a mixture of lime juice, garlic, cumin, chili powder, and a little olive oil for at least one hour. Marinate overnight for maximum flavor.

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill the beef to your preferred doneness, usually about 5–6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Once grilled, slice the beef against the grain into thin strips and serve with grilled vegetables on warm tortillas. Top with fresh cilantro, sour cream, and a squeeze of lime for an authentic touch.

The FireDisc portable outdoor grill features distinct heat zones, allowing you to cook many different types of food to perfection on the same cooking surface. This means you can efficiently prepare different dishes simultaneously. Grill vegetables for your fajitas, such as bell peppers and onions, at the same time as the meat is cooking!

4. Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken

Grilled lemon herb chicken is a light and flavorful dish. To make it, marinate chicken breasts in a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and herbs (such as rosemary and thyme) for at least 30 minutes.

Grill over medium-high heat for 6–8 minutes per side until slightly charred. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve the grilled lemon herb chicken sliced on a bed of mixed greens for a refreshing and healthy spring salad. Alternatively, pair it with roasted vegetables and a side of quinoa for a hearty, nutritious meal.
