There’s nothing that says breezy beach barbecue like fish tacos. In this recipe, we layer grilled cod with poblanos, avocados and gremolata, a mix of fragrant chopped herbs, garlic and lime zest. We chop the herbs by hand here, but feel free to pulse ingredients in the food processor if you prefer.
A quick soy-lime dressing adds serious oomph to this crunchy slaw. The beauty of a slaw made with heartier ingredients such as broccoli, carrots and radishes is that you can toss it in the dressing before leaving the house and it won’t get soggy. If you don’t have a portable grill, you can also cook the tofu in a skillet or grill pan before leaving the house.
By removing the backbone, you get a juicy, whole chicken cooked in less time. The process takes only minutes but can be intimidating for first-timers; however, you can always ask your butcher to do it for you. Serve with additional lime wedges around the platter.
This spice-rubbed steak on the grill is special enough. But here, a good thing gets even better with a bold tomato and pepper sauce reminiscent of gazpacho. For a change of pace, try substituting chicken, pork chops or even shrimp for the beef.
