Different Ways to Put Your Grill to Use this Summer

Jul 14, 2020 | Entertainment, Fish, Food

Between our pit crew at Valley Smoke and the gourmet kitchen staff at Marker 32, the Fish Camps family knows a thing or two about BBQ favorites. Floridians know the value of a functional outdoor set-up better than anyone. There isn’t a Sunshine state resident who doesn’t crave a cold pool and a night of grilling during the summer months. If this sounds like you, we’re here with a few recipes to kickstart your outdoor cooking:

Grilled Citrus Salmon in Foil

This fool-proof recipe should be in every novice home chef’s arsenal. Fish can be finicky on the grill, as it tends to flake and overcook. Foil is the ideal solution to mitigate these grilling issues. Here’s how to easily and effectively prepare a gourmet seafood dinner this summer:


1.5 lbs salmon, skin removed

4 sprigs dill

4 sprigs parsley

4 cloves minced garlic

1 ripe lemon

2 tbsp butter, melted

Kosher salt and fresh pepper

Preheat your grill to 375-degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with olive oil or baking spray. Arrange a few sprigs of dill and parsley in the center of the foil, then layer on a few thin lemon slices. Place the salmon on top. 

Drizzle the salmon with melted butter, salt, pepper and minced garlic. Top with the remaining herbs and a few more lemon slices. Fold the sides of the foil up and over the salmon until it’s covered completely. Transfer to the grill and cook with the lid closed for 15-17 minutes. Check every few minutes for doneness. 

Carefully open the foil so the top of the salmon is exposed, then cook for another 3 minutes with the grill lid on. Garnish with chopped herbs and a squeeze of lemon. 

Browned Butter Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon

This one has our mouths watering! Fresh peaches are the definition of summertime, and preparing them on the grill just takes it one step further. 


2 ripe, firm peaches or nectarines, halved with pits removed

2 tbsp butter

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

1 tbsp honey

½ tsp vanilla

Kosher salt

¼ cup crumbled Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Vanilla ice cream, for serving

To prepare your butter, add to a skillet on the stovetop over medium heat. Allow the butter to brown for about 3 minutes, until golden and aromatic. Transfer the melted butter to a bowl and mix with cinnamon, honey, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. 

Preheat the grill to 400-degrees F and lightly coat the grates with oil. Place the peaches face-down for a few minutes, until grill marks form. Flip and repeat. Remove to a serving dish and drizzle with browned butter mixture and a heaping amount of crumbled cinnamon cereal.
