Omaha Steaks – Alaskan skin on salmon

Looking for summer BBQ dinner ideas that don’t involve meat? Omaha Steaks also had a wide selection of fresh fish and seafood. Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon tastes great on the grill. Plus, they come with the skin, so it locks in more juices and flavor while being BBQed. Pair it with a creamy lemon dill tartar sauce for a delicious (and healthy) meal!

Lobster Tail Skewers

Omaha Steaks – lobster tail skewers

Let’s face it – lobster is delicious no matter which way you cook it. But these pre-skewered lobster tails are especially tasty when they’re fired on the grill. They come split and basted in lemon garlic butter, so you can simply toss them on the BBQ when you’re ready!

Side Dishes

Omaha Steaks – stuffed baked potatoes

When cooking summer meals on the grill, you can’t forget a few delicious side dishes! For example, potatoes go very well with all cuts of meat. Try stuffed baked potatoes, smashed red potatoes, or even whipped sweet potatoes!

A side of greens is also good to have on the table. A bowl of Brussel sprouts and bacon is the perfect smokey complement to your BBQ mains. Or stick with a classic green bean casserole. We also love broccoli and cauliflower gratin for a satisfying side that’s tasty enough to be eaten on its own!
