Tequila Lime Shrimp Zoodles
This recipe is simply drool-worthy. The flavor of the shrimp truly makes for a full-flavored dish that tastes like restaurant quality, while only taking minutes to prepare! A perfect low-carb option when you’re looking for a quick healthy dinner that’s packed with flavor.
The zoodles can be hit or miss for some people but the nice thing about cooking is that you can always switch out ingredients and make the meal your own.
Grilled Vegetable Skewers
If all dishes were like this, I could easily give up meat and become a vegetarian tomorrow. … That may be a little dramatic but you get the point. These marinated fresh veggie kabobs are packed with tons of flavor – perfect as a healthy side dish to any meal!
Grilled Salmon with Avocado Cucumber Salsa
Some times mixing flavors can be a little chaotic, but between the mix of spicy (from the seasoning mix) and cool (from the avocado cucumber salsa), when you put everything together it’s a recipe for success! There’s tons of salmon types to get from your local super market, but my favorite is wild Alaskan salmon from the icy waters of the Pacific.
Pineapple Salsa Grilled Chicken
Fresh, flavorful, and perfect for weeknight summer dinners. Grilled chicken in the summer is easy and quick! But it can get boring when you only try the same recipes – this is why we switched it up with the pineapple salsa. These flavorful chicken breasts are grilled to perfection, then topped with a sweet and spicy, colorful pineapple salsa.
Spicy Cocoa Steak Rub
Of course we saved the best for last. If you’re looking to wow your family or treat the Mr. to a nice dinner this is it. Grilled skirt steak with cocoa spice rub is perfection. It’s flavored with a sweet and spicy dry rub and will be a hit at dinner tonight. The rub adds the perfect balance of sweet and savory flavors.
If you don’t try any other recipe on this list, I beg of you to try to spicy cocoa steak rub! *Chef’s kiss* We promise you can’t go wrong. In case some nights you want to skip cooking all together, check out my Top 5 Atlanta Food Trucks
