Recipe Ideas That Make The Most Of Summer

What is it about adult time that means that one day it’s January and the next it’s summer? Rather than let the summer slide by with the same old dishes, why not try something new? The TK recipes below are great for everything from burger nights with the family to backyard barbecues and potluck picnics. Make the most of summer or just get out of a cooking rut with these delicious ideas to make in your HexClad pans.

RECIPE IDEAS THAT MAKE THE MOST OF SUMMER

A GORGEOUS CHARCUTERIE BOARD

Okay, while not technically a recipe, a great charcuterie board is a must for summer entertaining. Pile your favorite meats, cheeses, spreads, and finger foods onto your largest HexClad cutting board to make a gorgeous snack feast that requires very little effort and even less clean up. A charcuterie board is the perfect laid back hosting plan or way to start off a dinner party. Want some direction? Check our guide to assembling the best charcuterie board.

SWEET-HOT STICKY CHICKEN WINGS

Forget the frozen kind already drenched in sauce. You need ultra-flavorful wings coated in a spicy honey barbecue sauce paired with shishito peppers. You’ll make it all in your HexClad 12” Hybrid BBQ Grill Pan, which allows the smoky goodness of the grill to get to the food without worrying about anything falling through the grates. Get the recipe for Grilled Sweet Honey Glazed Chicken Wings & Shishito Peppers. Make it a meal by pairing them with white or brown rice or serve them as an appetizer.

THE PERFECT GRILLED ZUCCHINI SIDE DISH

We’re not saying that competitiveness is absolutely necessary at a summer party, but we are saying that if you are tasked with bringing a side and want to impress, Warm Grilled Zucchini, Feta, & Basil Salad is the one to bring. It combines perfectly charred zucchini and feta with a crispy caper, basil, pistachio, and honey dressing. Serve it alongside grilled salmon or steak, or turn it into a pasta salad by folding in your favorite short shape like penne, radiatori, casarecce, or orecchiette.

FISH TACOS THAT CHANNEL MEXICO

While you might not be able to get to Baja this summer, you can bring the taste of the sea to your kitchen with Baja Fish Tacos. You’ll top warmed tortillas with battered and fried fish, avocado, shredded cabbage, pickled onions, cilantro, and a spicy crema. Served with light beers on a warm summer night, you can just imagine the sound of the waves crashing.

AN EASIER CHICKEN KEBAB

Rather than spend your time threading raw chicken onto skewers alongside pieces of veg that tend to slip away, combine the best of kebabs (the meat and vegetables) in your HexClad 12” Hybrid BBQ Grill Pan to give them all the delicious flavor without the work. Served with a yogurt sauce and pita, the result is an easy dinner that takes very little prep time. To make it dinner party-worthy, arrange everything on a platter with warmed pita in baskets so everyone can assemble their own kebab. Get the recipe for Skewerless Chicken Kebabs

FAST FOOD-STYLE CALIFORNIA BURGERS

Surfs up and the smash burger is on the grill with our recipe for California Burgers, which combine a thin, griddled patty with umami-rich caramelized onions and a secret sauce to rival the most famous California burger chain. Make them on your Hybrid Double Burner Griddle to get the maximum crispy surface area on the patty. Serve with a milkshake and fries to truly channel a pitstop for burgers while driving up the Pacific Coast Highway.

AN ELEGANT SALMON MAIN FOR LAID BACK DINNER PARTIES

The ratio of work to impressiveness is extremely good for a roasted side of salmon. Our recipe for Citrus Roasted Salmon with Salsa Verde takes just 35 minutes to come together and is relatively hands off, meaning you have more time to enjoy the good summer weather or get the rest of the menu together. You’ll bake the salmon with citrus and shallots and top it with an anchovy-infused salsa verde. Serve it with steamed new potatoes, grilled asparagus, roasted cauliflower, or anything that strikes your fancy at the farmers’ market.
