What Food Can Be Grilled?

Grilling your food never goes out of style. Today grilling is trendier than ever because it is a fun and entertaining outdoor activity to do with friends and family and has many health benefits. Plus, it won't be wrong if you say that grilled food has a richer and more natural taste than fried or baked food.

If you are looking to host your friends, colleagues, or family members for a party and want to impress your guests with your grilling skills, we have got you covered. Remember, there are no hard and fast rules for what can be grilled or whatnot. You can grill any food as long as it is fresh and tastes good.

So, without further ado, let's look at some amazing dishes you can grill and win compliments.

Hamburgers and Hotdogs

Let's admit, when someone mentions grilling, most people think of America's iconic food; hamburgers and hotdogs. These are every family's go-to favorites because even the pickiest eaters don't complain about it.

A very big advantage of a burger is that there are many ways to season and cook them. However, the safest option that everybody likes is a medium-well burger stuffed with cheese and topped with caramelized onions. Then, of course, below the patty would be lettuce, tomato, and a slight touch of mayo! Ta-Da, people will call you the king of the grill!

Also, whenever you are grilling burgers, it doesn't hurt to throw some hotdogs on the grill. When grilled right, they are smoky and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Once they are ready, set them aside and toast your buns on the grill, which should take a minute. When they start getting brown, immediately pop the hotdogs into the buns. This will ensure that any wayward juices go right in the bun and are served smoky hot right off the grill.

Chicken

You can't disagree; this bird tastes delicious when it's seasoned well and grilled to perfection.

The most amazing thing about chicken is that all of its parts can be made into different items, and every person has their favorites among them.

If you ask your kids, they'd say they love chicken legs, mainly because they are tender and kind of easy to hold. Men & women would devour some spicy chicken wings and never get enough of it. But, it doesn't just end there. When it comes to the breast part, you can easily turn it into a delicious chicken steak and serve it with sauté vegetables or mashed potato.  

However, No matter what part you are grilling, you can season chicken with various things like a marinade, barbecue sauce, or a combination of garlic and mustard. It will always taste great, and guests will always ask for more.

Beef Steak

Beefsteak is the national favorite dish at all family cookouts because it goes great with just about anything.

There are several cuts to choose from when it comes to grilling, and each has its unique features. However, seasoning the steak right is more important than choosing the cut. Because salting the meat too early can draw out all the moisture, making the meat dry and hard to chew. The correct approach is to add the salt over 15 or 20 minutes after putting it on the grill. It will be a good thing as the salt will begin to dissolve into that little bit of moisture that's been drawn out.

Also, the salt will mix with any other seasonings that you might have added, creating a perfectly crisp crust. Besides the salt and seasoning, it's the fat in your meat that gives it the right tenderness and juice.

When that fat drips down onto the fire or coal, the crackling flame rises and sizzles the meat intensely. That sight alone would be enough to water your guests' mouths.

Grilled Salmon

If you are tired of eating chicken and beef, there is always an escape: seafood!

Whenever you think of doing something new for your grill gatherings, fish is always a great option. Though it must be grilled with care, it is one of the most heavenly things to devour when done right.

The best way is to buy un-cut raw fish, clean it yourself, and cut out some hefty filets, so you and your guests get more meaty bites and less skin.

Next, lay the steaks on the preheated grill and cook until the flesh starts to turn brown. When you are done cutting it, season each side of the steak with Italian seasoning, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Don't forget to keep turning the side every 7-8 minutes; otherwise, it might stick to the grates. When it's nearly done, add the magic touch; sprinkle each steak with lime juice and brown sugar, and serve it right to your guests' plates.

They will love the tangy sweetness of this grilled salmon!

Assorted Veggies & Fruits

If you or your guests don't like meat, you can try adding some plants to your meals. By plants, we mean vegetables or fruits (of course).

Either pair a good roasted chicken or beef steak with an assortment of grilled veggies, or go full vegetarian mode and make it an all veg party.

One of the most exotic and loved plants to grill is the fruit Avocado. It tastes amazing after grilling and is simple to make. Just cut the fruit in half (keeping the skin on), take out the seed, and coat it with olive oil. Place the two halves on the grill for 5 to 7 minutes, and that's it. Your grilled avocados are ready. If you want an extra summery flavor, you can top them with some herbs and tomatoes.

However, your kids might ask for something fancier. For that, corn on the cob is a great choice as it is fun to eat and is also endorsed by picky backyard guests. Further, you can experiment with zucchini, squash, mushrooms, onions, carrots, and peppers.

To sum it all, there is a wide variety of ways you can grill meat and vegetables. You need to be creative and aware of your family preferences.
