Grilled Mahi-Mahi & Asparagus with Lemon Butter

In this quick grilled fish recipe, we grill firm mahi-mahi and fresh spring asparagus alongside one another, then drizzle them with a bit of tart lemon butter. We like mahi-mahi in this recipe, but any firm fish fillet can be used in its place.

Grilled Leg of Lamb with Mint-Garlic Rub

In this elegant lamb recipe perfect for entertaining, boneless leg of lamb gets a mint and garlic rub. The butterflied lamb cooks in record time and the varying thickness means some slices will be more done than others, so there’s something for everyone. The recipe calls for a cut that’s large enough to serve about 16 people and still have enough leftovers to make an awesome sandwich or pasta.

Fire up your grill and try one of these healthy grilling recipes!

Warm weather (and even cold weather, for some hardy souls) inspires us to cook on the grill. Anything grilled has a unique, smoky flavor, and grilling is a super-quick cooking method. The grill’s flames can develop rich, complex flavors in standard fare like burgers and chicken and in nontraditional dishes, such as pizza and desserts.
