Spring and summer can only mean one thing for food and cooking enthusiasts: Grilling! However, you shouldn’t always limit your grilling choices to the typical heavy options: burgers, steaks, and ribs are great, but represent only a sampling of the possibilities. Take a look at the lighter side. The meals may fascinate you!
Fairway market offers a wide array of lighter grilling fair, including USDA-certified and farm-fresh poultry, such as from Murray’s, in Pennsylvania, along with a huge assortment of different types of fresh seafood. Grilled vegetables are also a nutritional and colorful addition to any meal, and you won’t have any issues finding the perfect side dish in Fairway’s vast produce section. If you’re looking to spice up your favorite grilling recipe, look no further than Fairway’s immense collection of high-quality private label herbs, spices, and extra-virgin olive oils.
To start, the lean protein from chicken breasts and fish, along with nutrient-filled fresh vegetables, are three of our best options when making healthier picks. Including vegetables as part of your diet not only can supply your body with various vitamins and minerals, but they’re also a great source of antioxidants and dietary fiber.
So whether you’re craving salmon, halibut, tuna, scallops, or chicken, Fairway can provide you with endless and imaginative possibilities. Depending on your preference, you can take the minimalist approach, and simply prep your fillet with Fairway extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, and lemon. However, if you prefer a more bold taste, you can try adding teriyaki, soy, or ginger sauce to your favorite fillet. Creating a homemade mango salsa with tomatoes, onions, and peppers can also be a fresh, delicious and tangy addition to any grilled fish plate.
If you’re looking for a hassle-free and easy way to prepare your chicken, simply use your favorite salad dressing and let the chicken marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator. If you happen to love the traditional taste of barbecue, Fairway supplies their own exceptional BBQ sauces (that come in three flavors: shweet, shmokey, and hawt, for those who need to feel heat when they eat), which will complement your grilled chicken with smoky perfection. You may also be inspired to be more adventurous with your cuisine. Give your recipes a remarkable new kick by seasoning your chicken with Szechuan peppercorns, chipotle chili powder, the Aleppo pepper in Fairway’s Grill Master Spice Set, or any of the spices in Fairway’s Exotic Spice Set (the spice sets are available at Fairway’s online store, FairwayMarketplace.com). And since olive oil can be one of the most vital aspects of light grilling — adding flavor, a silky texture, and heart-healthy fats to you dishes — don’t forget that Fairway is famous for its extraordinary array of extra virgin olive oils from around the world. The assortment varies from the grassy Australian Picual to the buttery Barbera Sicilian.
