Summer is fast approaching, and that means it’s time for backyard hangouts by the pool.
Don’t be caught with your grill unprepared! Thankfully, it just takes a little planning and inspiration to throw together a keto-friendly spread that’ll have your guests clamoring for recipes.
With that in mind, I’ve found some of the best grilled recipes to keep any summer event delicious and low-carb!
Grilled Sausage Portobello Pizzas
Saying goodbye to traditional pizza is one of the hardest parts about the keto diet, but thankfully there are some awesome crust substitutes out there.
These mouthwatering sausage pizzas use portobello mushroom caps as a base, and they work perfectly for the grill.
As an added bonus, they are small enough that you can customize them to each guest’s liking.
Tikka Chicken Wings
Chicken tikka masala is a classic, bursting with bold Indian spices, but it’s far from a finger-food that you would eat at a barbecue.
Luckily, Kim from Low Carb Maven has captured those amazing flavors with her party-friendly tikka chicken wings.
To top it all off, the cilantro-citrus dipping sauce is divine – you’d never know this recipe was healthy!
Thai Grilled Beef Salad
This Thai grilled beef salad delivers amazing umami flavor thanks to the fish sauce in its dressing.
With less than a pound of steak making four servings, this recipe doesn’t break the bank – and it’s a great way to cure a red meat craving without overdoing it!
Steak and Mushroom Kabobs
Kabobs on the grill are a summertime classic, and there aren’t many pairings better than steak and mushrooms.
If you make this recipe, just be careful with the Worcestershire sauce. Some brands contain sugar while others don’t have any, so be sure to read that label!
Grilled Salmon With Avocado Salsa
I love a good grilled salmon in the summertime, especially when paired with this fresh, colorful avocado salsa.
Fish grills quickly, so don’t overdo it!
Always use fresh lime and cilantro – the difference in the vibrancy of the flavors is incredible.
Alabama White Wings
Alabama’s white BBQ sauce is one of the South’s best kept culinary secrets.
It’s a mayonnaise-based sauce, so it fits perfectly with a keto diet. The addition of mustard, horseradish, and vinegar really give it some unique zing and brightness.
It’s great on grilled or smoked chicken wings, so definitely give it a try at your next cookout!
Teriyaki Beef On a Stick
This teriyaki beef recipe ditches the traditional sugar glaze but doesn’t skimp on big Asian flavor!
Skewer some peppers, onions, mushrooms, and other veggies of your choice to accompany it, or serve over cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles.
