Summertime and good food bring family and friends together best. The delicious seasonal ingredients range from peaches to striped bass. Using these abundant supplies, here are a few recipes to make the most of summer meals this year.
Watermelon and Feta Salad
Full of nutrients and hydrating properties, watermelons are beneficial in the summer. Balance the sweetness by pairing them with contrasting flavors like in this Watermelon and Feta Salad recipe from Michael Symon.
Adobo Grilled Chicken
Adobo seasoning is convenient to make in advance and store for up to two weeks in a cool, dry place. When ready to cook, use this Latin staple in Ingrid Hoffmann’s Delicioso Adobo Grilled Chicken recipe.
Making jam when peaches are at their peak allows optimal enjoyment throughout the year. This Peach Jam recipe works with either clingstone or freestone varieties.
Savory Breakfast Kabobs
Try a Savory Breakfast Kabob recipe with protein and fiber to provide fuel for summer activities. Easily stack a skewer with sausage links, cheese omelets, onions, and bell peppers cooked on a skillet.
Grilled Sea Bass with Salsa
A sustainable fish best enjoyed during the summer in the East and West coast of America is the Sea Bass. Jalapeños are also in season and pair well in a Grilled Sea Bass with Jalapeño-Mango Salsa recipe.
Zucchinis are plentiful in the summer and can substitute deli meat or steaks. Try a Zucchini Panini with Havarti or Swiss cheese for a vegetarian option at summer events.
Grilled Corn on the Cob
Sweet corn tastes best in the summer and when home-grown. Skip the steaming and make Bobby Flay’s Perfectly Grilled Corn on the Cob. Serve it with his BBQ butter and herb butter.

Cook a Pancetta-Wrapped Pork Roast in the oven as an alternative to grilling. This recipe involves a mixture of garlic, rosemary, and thyme.
Roasted Tomato Basil Soup
Tomato and basil are dominant summer ingredients. This Roasted Tomato Basil Soup recipe extracts flavors by roasting the tomatoes and combining them with basil, thyme, and other aromatics.
Grilling steak with just salt and pepper can be delicious with the right techniques. Bobby Flay shows how in his Perfectly Grilled Steak recipe.
