30 quick and easy grilling recipes you can make in 30 minutes or less

Summertime is synonymous with grilling. Whether you're at a beach, cookout, or just in your own backyard, almost any kind of meal will taste better and match the season if you throw it on the grill. It's a social activity that also brings out the flavors of certain foods—seasonal ones, particularly—like no other cooking method could.

It goes without saying that meats of all kinds taste great coming off the grill. This is true for seafood as much as it is for old standards like hamburgers and hot dogs. A particularly excellent activity for those fortunate enough to live near a body of water can be to catch your own dinner before tossing it on the grill. And don't overlook the transformative power the grill has on vegetables, another food group with a flavor profile that can be entirely transformed by this cooking method. Think onions, peppers, and tomatoes, which char beautifully, and can be particularly tasty paired with seafood—even on a kebab.

And since the last thing you want to do when gathering with friends and family for a delicious meal is spend all of your time cooking, Stacker compiled a list of grilling recipes you can make in 30 minutes or less from Allrecipes. Read on for some 30 quick and easy recipes you can prepare in a jiffy.
