We have a gas grill at home, and you would be hard press to find me cooking (meat especially) anywhere else during the summer time. And this, for me, is quintessential summer cooking: fresh ingredients, prepared simply to enhance their own natural flavors. Here I made a mango salsa with fresh ripe mango, red onion, jalapeño pepper, cilantro, freshly squeezed lime juice, garlic, salt and freshly ground black pepper, to accompany some very basic grilled shrimp (and by basic, I mean seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, salt, freshly ground black pepper, and garlic, and thrown on a very hot grill for about ninety seconds per side). An extra squeeze of lime on the plate, and you have a super fast, super easy, and super tasty meal perfect for a hot summer afternoon (or an overcast Memorial Day weekend, as it were). Happy grilling!
