OK. Who else here is crazy like my husband and you go out on the deck, back patio, etc. in the middle of the freezing cold winter? My husband does. We like grilling too much to only eat it during the warm months, especially now that my husband has a Traeger smoker grill. We’ve had it for a few years and we’re totally in love with it. Now we’re spoiled and don’t like gas grills because they make food taste like propane.
I hope you like my recipes, some of them are my favorites, especially the first four because they are my very own. I’d like to include some other recipes I have that I think you would like.

9 of the Best Ever Clean Eating Grill Recipes – Get Out the Grill
1. 20 Minute Clean BBQ Sauce – Clean Eating Recipes
This is an awesome generic barbeque sauce recipe that can be used for all kinds of different meals. My favorite ways to use it are on sloppy joes, pulled pork and ribs. I also like on hamburgers, smoked meat and chicken nuggets. It can replace ketchup too. Just use it any way you always used to used BBQ sauce in a bottle. This doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup either, so it’s more healthy for anyone.
2. Grilled Mahi Mahi in a Lemon Butter Sauce – My Natural Family
Mahi Mahi – Onion – Garlic – Lemons – Chicken Stock
Once you make this lemon butter sauce you will want to make it every night and put it on almost everything you prepare. It’s nice enough to make for company but it’s also easy enough to make on a week night. Mahi Mahi is a good fish to grill because it is firm enough to not fall apart on the grill. It doesn’t have a very fishy taste so if you know someone that doesn’t love fish for that reason, make it for them and they’ll change their mind.
3. Teriyaki Chicken Skewers – My Natural Family
This teriyaki sauce is not sweetened with sugar, it’s sweetened with dates and a little bit of honey. All good wholesome natural ingredients that are so much more healthy than sugar. Once it’s pureed, the sweet onion and dates also help to thicken the sauce. That way you don’t need a thickening agent.
4. 30 Minute Red Pepper and Garlic Butter Foil-Grilled Salmon – My Natural Family
Salmon – Red Bell Pepper – Lemon – Honey
If you want to impress your guests and still have a really easy meal to prepare this is the recipe for you. It only takes half an hour to prepare AND it’s really healthy. The sauce with herbs and red peppers are really good on this because salmon has a bit of a stronger flavor than other fish and this sauce balances out the flavors. This salmon is really good served over a bed of arugula with a little salt and lemon juice instead of dressing. Healthy all around.
5. Grilled Salmon Tacos with Avocado Salsa – Cooking Classy
Salmon – Olive Oil – Lime Juice – Avocados – Red Onion – Cilantro – Jalapeno – Garlic – Corn Tortillas – Red Cabbage – Cotija Cheese
These tacos are delicious, they have just the right spices to enhance the flavor of the salmon. With the cabbage they have just the right amount of crunch and the fresh avocado salsa is just delightful. It’s perfect with the corn tortillas but you can use flour tortillas if you want to. It’s great with corn on the cob on the side too.
These fajitas are actually really easy to make. All you do is marinade the meat and veggies, that only takes an hour. You can do anything you want while it’s marinating. Then you cook them all on the BBQ grill. Included is the best chimichurri sauce recipe and the best Paleo tortilla recipe.
7. Peri Peri Marinated Chicken Skewers – African Bites
These BBQ chicken skewers are marinated in a sauce that is made with spicy peppers, basil, lime, garlic and oregano. They are a really nice option for entertaining. You can make them the night before and let them marinate until you’re ready to cook them on the grill.
8. Grilled Moroccan Vegetable Skewers – Natashas Kitchen
Zucchini – Bell Peppers – Onion – Mushrooms – Olive Oil – Lemon Juice – Garlic – Parsley – Cilantro
I don’t usually like onions but I really like these onions and zucchini, peppers and mushroom when they are marinated in this marinade sauce. They were so flavorful and juicy. I usually make a double recipe for the marinade and then I marinade some chicken to go with these veggies and grill them all at the same time.
9. Grilled Garlic Potatoes – Ready to Yumble
Potatoes – Onion – Butter – Olive Oil – Garlic – Parsley – Seasoning Blend – Cheddar Cheese – Shredded Parmesan Cheese
I think these should be called easy peasy cheesy potatoes. They are cooked in tin foil on the grill which makes them very tender and gives them time for all of the flavor to blend together. I love to cook in foil because clean up is so easy. Just throw that foil away baby! I love using my grill because I don’t have to heat up my kitchen with the oven when it’s so hot outside.
I hope you love these clean eating grill recipes as much as I do.
