Although our moms perform their motherly duties every day and ask for nothing in return, only once a year do they get a day dedicated solely to their hard work. For this Mother’s Day, we found some yummy grill recipes to impress your mom, grill up for her, and ultimately show her how much she means to you. We hope this little act of kindness will bring you two together to enjoy some tasty grill recipes.
1. Grilled Asparagus with Balsamic Reduction
Get fancy by pulling this veggie side dish out of your pocket on Mother’s Day! This mouth-watering asparagus treat is perfect for moms who are looking for a healthy snack to nibble on or when they’re deciding what to pair with a steak dinner.
The best part about this recipe? It’s fast!
As soon as mom says she’s hungry, get your asparagus grilling and seasoning and you’ll be done within 8 minutes! Top with grated parmesan and pine nuts and watch how this grill recipe impresses mom to tears.
2. Grilled Corn
Corn may be one of the easiest grill recipes, but your mom will love how creative you get with these variations of grilled corn. While you may want to keep it simple, give mom the option to lather her corn in more than just a little salt and butter. If she’s a lover of meat, wrap some corn in bacon before grilling. If she craves a little Italian flavoring, smear a dab of pesto and sprinkle with parmesan or mozzarella cheese. If she is a fan of saucy meals, pour on the BBQ and give it a side of potato chips.
There are surprisingly many ways to eat grilled corn and mom will love every one of them because you made them with her in mind.
3. Grilled Lamb Chops with Harissa Yogurt
Want to really wow mom this Mother’s Day? Break out the lamb chops and watch her mouth drop at your culinary skills. This Mediterranean dish packs a punch in the flavor department -- cumin, coriander, paprika, garlic, mint -- need we go on? If your mom is a fan of Greek-style meals, she’ll be over the moon about this grill recipe. Add veggies and rice and that dish will look so good it’ll deserve a chef’s kiss!
4. Chile-Lime Clams with Tomatoes and Grilled Bread
If your mom enjoys a good seafood medley, you’ll want to grill this chile-lime clams recipe right up! Make sure you have a skillet to place over your grill before starting so that your clams will be able to soak in the sauce while it cooks.
You may be thinking, “Why wouldn’t I just cook this over the stove instead of grilling?” Good questions! When you place the skillet on the grill, your food picks up the smoky flavor that would be nonexistent inside your home’s kitchen. Plus, your mom will be all smiles as she watches you grill this savory dish outdoors, and you wouldn’t want to miss that!
5. Grilled Pears with Cinnamon Drizzle
Speaking of recipes to impress your mom, we couldn’t make this list without throwing a dessert grill recipe into the mix! This one is rather easy, making it the perfect dessert to make after a long day of spending quality time with your mom and family.
Cut a pear in half, remove the seed, and place on the grill. After a couple of minutes, you’ll have a warm pear ready for some caramel cinnamon drizzle with a dash of chopped pecans. Make this warm and refreshing dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to really satisfy that sweet tooth.
