Summer is here!  

It is the time of sun-drenched days filled with backyard grilling, seasonal salads, and cold drinks. Naturally, at Harmons we celebrate the season by crafting crave-worthy meals to share with friends and family. Seafood is an especially good protein choice for the summer season because it requires little cooking time.  

Eat the essence of summer with this ocean-inspired list of eight recipes from our talented dietitian nutritionists and professional chefs. 

Fragrant aromatics like onion and ginger weave together this Hawaiian inspired dish flavored with toasted sesame oil, zesty jalapeño, and crunchy macadamia nuts. Forget the heat! This recipe involves no cooking, just a bit of chopping. We suggest serving it over brown rice to round out the meal. 

These are the perfect little number for summer gatherings. Cool shrimp salad dressed with a buttery avocado sauce is nestled into our artisan 7-grain rolls. 

Wow your guests with flambéed shrimp and caramelized Meyer lemon. Easy wilted greens add a colorful splash of green to this dish. 

Watch the video for Chef Lesli to guide you through the technique to perfectly grill fish. You’ll also learn how to make a summery compound butter with garden basil and lemon. 

Chef Lesli teaches another method to master grilled fish with an instructional video. This time, she guides us through creating abundant shellfish skewers featuring juicy shrimp, sweet scallops, and savory salmon. 

If you need a fast, delicious summer meal that won’t heat up the house, this is your ticket. Quick grilled shrimp is served with Harmons’ corn and black bean salad and garnished with a squeeze of fresh lemon. 

Keep the house cool and fire up the grill (or use a grill pan) to cook up some juicy shrimp. Serve over ripe, in-season melon with an easy side salsa. 

Silky potatoes, crisp veggies, and briny olives are the stars in this classic salad with tuna and eggs for satisfying protein. Once you try this recipe, you’ll make it again and again!
