Spring has officially arrived. If you’re like millions of Californians, you’re contemplating breaking out the propane grill, and doing some serious barbecuing. After all, there’s nothing quite like freshly-grilled and well-seasoned foods on a warm, spring day. If you’re new to barbecuing, however, you could probably use a few delicious recipes to get you started:
- Grilled chicken with apricot glaze- Grilled chicken is a favorite among grillers all over the country. Besides, grilled chicken contains significantly less fat than other meats. Before you grill anything, it’s important that you scrub the grill with a wire brush and rub it with vegetable oil. After cutting up a whole chicken into drumsticks, thighs, wings, and breasts, you should lightly season the meat with salt and pepper and cook each side at 165 degrees for five to ten minutes. To make it extra delicious, you might top it off with a sweet and savory apricot-balsamic vinegar glaze.
- Grilled lamb with mint sauce- For a slightly different taste, you might surprise your guests with a delicious grilled leg of lamb. After buying a boneless leg of lamb from the store, you should trim away the excess fat and marinate the lamb in mustard, garlic, and herbs for at least a day. After grilling each side of lamb for about eight minutes, you should serve the lamb with either store-bought or homemade mint sauce.
- Grilled asparagus with herb sauce- There are still plenty of the delicious grilled foods for vegetarians to eat. Asparagus, for example, lends itself very well to the grill. After grilling asparagus for about four minutes, just add a garlic-herb sauce and you should have something that everyone can enjoy.
