Fire up the grill this weekend and impress your friends with these crowd-pleasing, easy recipes. They're sure to become your go-to favorites of the summer!

1. Juicy Steakhouse Burgers


These burgers are tender, juicy and full of flavor -- just like the ones served at your favorite steakhouse. GET THE RECIPE

2. Grilled Thai Curry Chicken with Coconut-Peanut Sauce


This wonderful recipe originally comes from Alice Currah of the blog and book, Sweet Savory Life. It's the sauce that makes it so good -- if you're anything like me, you'll be tempted to eat it with a spoon. GET THE RECIPE

3. Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Salsa


These tacos are perfect for a party. You can prepare the avocado salsa ahead of time, so all that's left to do when your guests arrive is grill the shrimp and warm the tortillas. GET THE RECIPE

4. Grilled Turkey Burgers


Turkey burgers are usually dry and tasteless. Not these! The secret is adding Italian turkey sausage -- a trick often used with meatballs. GET THE RECIPE

This salmon is simply grilled and topped with a tangy and refreshing cucumber salad -- the essence of summer! GET THE RECIPE

Marinated in garlic, rosemary and olive oil, this flank steak is juicy, flavorful and deliciously charred. GET THE RECIPE

7. Asian BBQ Chicken


Think of this dish as Chicken Teriyaki with a South Asian flair, or India meets the other flavors of Asia. GET THE RECIPE

Think outside the burger box with these delicious lamb patties topped with tzatziki, feta, tomatoes, red onions, and shredded lettuce. GET THE RECIPE

9. Perfectly Grilled Chicken Breasts with Lemon, Garlic & Herbs


This is my basic, go-to grilled chicken -- perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or cookout -- and so versatile. You can serve the fillets on their own (kids love them), topped with cheese on a toasted bun, chopped up in a quesadilla or, as I often do, sliced over a Greek or Caesar salad. GET THE RECIPE

10. Grilled Asparagus & Feta Salad


This is the kind of wholly satisfying dish that makes you wonder if you might possibly be a very happy vegetarian. It's delicious for lunch or a light bite, or as a side to grilled fish, chicken or steak. GET THE RECIPE
