Sriracha shrimp and other tasty recipes to light up your grill

If you haven’t gotten your grill out yet, this week’s weather will make it a perfect time to dust it off and light it up.

Are you a first-time griller? Mike Miles of Miles Lab offered The Elkhart Truth tips for grilling everything from steak to tuna to fruits and vegetables. He suggests getting to know your grill, buying fresh meat and produce and prep your ingredients ahead of time.

Ready to grill? Here are a few recipes to try.

Bon Appétit has a simple recipe for beer-can chicken, a grilling classic. All you need is a half-full (or half-empty) can of light beer, a spiced chicken rub, a whole chicken, a drip pan and a hot grill. The recipe serves four.

Grilling doesn’t have to be that simple, though. You can go beyond the basics with the grilled spicy shrimp skewers recipe from Food52 that uses the popular-yet-controversial Sriracha hot sauce.

The recipe calls for items that you’re likely to already have in your kitchen, such as sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and, of course, Sriracha and shrimp. Combine the ingredients for the marinade and let the shrimp soak for a few hours before quickly grilling them – about two to three minutes on each side.

The New York Times also has several tasty yet simple grilling recipes.
