With the end of grilling season approaching, it may seem like all the grilling possibilities have been exhausted. Well, not quite yet. Fire up that grill one more time, because we've gathered together some great, Latin-inspired grilling recipes that are definitely worth a try.
Richard Sandoval, owner of numerous restaurants around the world that focus on modern Latin cuisine, offers up several noteworthy recipes, some of which are currently on the "Sea to Table" menu at Pampano, located in New York City. These menus focus on a different coastal region in Mexico each month; this month's focus is the southern Baja town of La Paz. Don't miss out on his Smoked Clams recipe — it's an easy-to-prepare and delicious appetizer, and a bona fide smoker isn't even necessary.
We rounded up some old favorites as well, but it's also worth pointing out that adding Latin flavors to your favorite grilled dishes can be as simple as whipping up a quick salsa while at the grill, or working in the right marinade the night before to infuse a little spicy, citrusy flavor and heat into your meats. Easy, simple, and flavorful — exactly the way grilling should be.
