With the weather heating up, it’s the perfect time to heat up the grill and give the oven a break. It also feels like a break for me when I get to spend time outside on the deck, enjoying the sunshine while grilling a delicious summer meal (or better yet, when Tony does the grilling!). Sadly, we have no deck at the moment and will probably be without a deck for the remainder of the summer (it’s a long story). We’re going camping though, so I’ve been on the lookout for easy grilling recipes for our trip.
I tried out this grilled shrimp recipe from Clubhouse.ca using the new Club House La Grille Smokehouse Maple Marinade. I love that the sauce is nice and thick so it stays on the shrimp when you cook it on the grill, maximizing the amazing sweet and smoky flavour of the marinade.
This meal looks and tastes so sophisticated that one will ever believe how easy and fast it is to make. It literally took me less than 10 minutes to put this together for lunch. Shrimp cooks so quickly, making it a great choice for a speedy weekday meal on the grill, or a no-hassle dinner while camping.
The maple vinaigrette was beautiful over mixed greens, and I poured extra over the shrimp because it was so good. I didn’t have all my Whine Critics with me because my boys are away with their grandparents this week, and Tony was out golfing. Only Ayla and I had the pleasure of eating this meal. Ayla was a little uncertain about the shrimp and wouldn’t eat the greens either, so I poured the vinaigrette over steamed vegetables for her instead and she loved that.
I’m going to bring the rest of the bottle of marinade with me on our camping trip to use for other easy grilling meals. There are a lot of great recipes at Clubhouse.ca that I’d love to try.
I’d love to hear about your favourite things to make on the grill. Please leave a comment or share them with me on Twitter @Food_Whine using the hashtag #FlavourStory.
