The weather has finally warmed up, and you know what that means…barbecues. And LOTS of them. To celebrate the warm weather and the freedom that sitting on a patio, balcony, or in a backyard brings, we thought we’d share five of our favourite things to grill on the ol’ ‘cue.

Poached Salmon filet
Simple and delicious, grilling and poaching salmon is so easy. Use some aluminum foil to make a tray for the filet, drizzle with lemon juice, a quarter cup of white wine, some dill and butter. Close up the filet with the rest of the foil and place on the grill on medium for 12-14 minutes and you’re golden!

Pesto and Lemon Veggie Skewers
Grab some skewers from the grocery store, and while you’re there grab zucchini, red and yellow peppers and some cherry tomatoes. Skewer them up, drizzle in olive oil, lemon juice and pesto and grill for 20 minutes.

Corn on the Cob
All you need to do is shuck the corn completely. When that’s done, smother in butter, salt, pepper and smoked paprika or cumin. Slap on the grill for 10 minutes, and finish with some bacon bits or some grated mozzarella or Parmesan.

Chicken Thighs
To start,put the grill on medium-to-high heat. Mix up a bowl of ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and water and cover the thighs in the bowl of sauce. Lay down a layer of foil on the grill, dull side up and put the thighs on there for 10 minutes for each side.

We’re not going to tell you how to grill your own steak. But if we did, it would involve a strip loin, olive oil, salt and pepper. It would also involve low and slow on the grill, somewhere around medium, 6 minutes a side, and then cranking up the grill to high to give it a nice reverse sear at the end. But that’s just us…
