Top 5 Tasty Summer Dinner Ideas Perfect For The GrillGetting out of work soon or wrapping up your day with no dinner ideas or plans? No worries, you are in luck. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is grill out. My nights typically revolve around working out, prepping dinner and cooking dinner; however, some nights when I get home I tend crave something that is grilled. Whether it be a simple piece of meat or a balsamic-marinated eggplant, I love how the grill brings out unique and strong flavors out in food.

Behold, five phenomenal dishes with full recipes to start your summer evening off perfectly using a grill. Not only are these dishes healthy, but they are also jam-packed full of bold flavors.

1.) Grilled Citrus-Marinated Mexican Chicken (Recipe)

This grilled citrus-marinated Mexican chicken is made with fresh orange, lime juice, and chipotle peppers and it is to die for. Sweet, smoky and perfect for the grill, this dish will be a meal the entire family will love.

2.) Grilled Flank Steak Kebabs (Recipe)

Whenever choosing to grill steak, I generally go with flank. Inexpensive, juicy and delicious, it goes great on kebabs. When I want to splurge I'll pick up a rib eye steak, which is a more fatty and flavoursome cut. With a little bit of ginger, honey and soy sauce marinade, these kebabs are a perfect dinner for the grill.

3.) Grilled Greek Chicken (Recipe)

Looking to switch it up a little? This grilled Greek chicken dish made with plain yogurt, garlic, lemon and a few other simple ingredients is to die for. It is highly recommended serving with a lemon, cucumber and feta salad. This dish is an all-star on the grill on any summer night.

4.) Grilled Eggplant Parmigiana (Recipe)

For any non-meat eaters out there, this dish is truly one of my favorites. Very cheap and easy to prepare, as well as cook, this grilled basil parmesan eggplant is a hearty dish that will satisfy the entire family. Served on a bed of arugula or spinach, this dish goes great on any summer evening.

5.) Grilled Thai Chile Garlic Shrimp (Recipe)

With a simple, six ingredient marinade, this seafood dish is absolutely amazing on the grill. Grilling for roughly three minutes on each side, this quick, easy and delicious dinner will certainly please any seafood lover. We recommend serving with a side of saffron rice and a vegetable of your choice.
