Bring in the season by adding some great citrus flavors to your chicken and shrimp.

Savory is usually the default for summer grilling, maybe a sweet BBQ sauce here and there, but the tang of citrus usually falls by the wayside. So here are two great citrus options – for both chicken and shrimp – for surprising your palette with a little lime and orange flavor.

And we’ve added a third shrimp-grilling recipe at the end, if neither of the first two citrus options are your thing.

Lime Cilantro Chicken

Skinless chicken thighs, tenders or breasts (about 3 pounds)
4 limes
1 cup cilantro (leaves and stems are fine)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Place the chicken in a dish or re-sealable plastic bag
  2. Juice and zest the limes, and then mix them with all the remaining ingredients (everything but the chicken, essentially) in a food processor and combine for about 30 seconds

Tip: If you don’t have a food processor, a hand blender works. If you don’t have a hand blender, just chop up the cilantro and whisk it all together.

  1. Save some of the marinade (1/4 to 1/2 cup) and pour the rest onto the chicken. Seal and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (overnight is fine)

2. Pre-heat the grill, remove the chicken from the bag and get cooking! Depending on the thickness of the chicken, it will probably take 12-15 minutes to cook. Use a meat thermometer to be sure it’s done

1. Remove from the grill, drizzle some of the remaining marinade on top and serve immediately
