Great for Grilling

One of the great things about grilling is its simplicity. Fire meets food. You can have virtually any level of involvement and still create a fantastic meal especially with marinades and rubs.  Fajitas are a perfect example of an easy grill meal that and can be made with a variety of meat or veg.

Our Fajita Picks
Beef, Chicken or Portobello Mushrooms

A simple mixture of lime juice, jalapeno, cilantro, salt, pepper and oil is all you need. Marinate up to 3 hours.

We Recommend

  • Smart Chicken Boneless Skinless Thighs
  • Local Windy Bar Inside or Outside Skirt Steak
  • Sirloin Flap Meat (we'll even tenderize it for you, just ask!)
  • Sirloin, Chuck or Ranch Steaks

Grill the steak in one piece, let it rest for at least 5 minutes and then slice thinly across the grain. Since that fire is already going, just grill those veggies at the same time. I like to carry at least some part if not all of the marinade through out the rest of the meal. It is helpful to keep your veggies in a cast iron skillet or on aluminum foil to keep them from falling through the grate. Bell peppers, onions and mushrooms are the traditional veggies of choice, but grilled corn(on the cob) and cherry tomatoes are nice additions to your fajitas.

Grilling Seafood

Fish tacos are a great meal to grill and Wheatsville has some awesome grilling fish. We recommend a sturdy white fish like a traditional Southern Catfish. If you are looking for a mild fish or one that takes on the flavor of your marinades and rubs, then Tilapia is would be a perfect choice.

If you are looking for something with a light flavor to pair well with your other ingredients then try the Lingcod. Very similar to Halibut in texture and taste, this high oil fish with a firm flake would be perfect for a fish taco with a crisp slaw and a spicy avocado sauce. Rehydrate some smoky chilies and dice them up into some sour cream and avocado.

Enjoy this grilling season with good food, family and friends.
