Ten Father’s Day Recipes For The Grill

bumble bee father's day recipes for the grill

Show dad how much you love him with a delicious, healthy meal. Whether he’s a steak and potatoes kind of guy, a vegetarian, or a fish fanatic, we’ve rounded up delicious grilled options for all the dads out there (including dessert!) Fire up those grills and watch him gobble it up.


Many dads think about grilling and a juicy steak may come to mind. These grilled steak recipes use lean cuts of beef with flavorful sauces and the right preparation techniques to keep them tender.

Another grilling staple, burgers can come in many styles and flavors. We’ve chosen a classic beef burger that’s made with mushrooms, both to add more savory flavor and decrease the need for a larger portion of beef (he’ll love it and appreciate the veggie boost!). Or you can play with tuna burgers by exploring the different textures of albacore tuna and chunk light.

Fish is delicious on the grill. But, the same flaky and tender texture that makes grilled fish so amazing also makes it a little trickier to get just right without sticking and/or falling through the grill. Thankfully, a few tricks can lead you to a successful grilled fish dish. The key is choosing the right type of fish and preparing the grill correctly. Typically, fish steaks (think salmon, halibut, or cod steaks) will do better when placed directly on the grill than fillets will. Whole fish also work well. Next, make sure to oil the preheated grates (do this with and oiled paper towel and tongs) AND the fish before grilling. Place the skin side of the fish down (if fish has skin) diagonally on the grates and wait 4-5 minutes before trying to flip (if the skin doesn’t release give it another minute.) To cook fish fillets, or more tender fish, on the grill, use a special grill pan or cook in a piece of heavy duty foil. Here are some of our favorite grilled fish recipes:

Grilled Pork Tenderloin

If you’ve never cooked a pork tenderloin on the grill, we highly recommend trying it. The flavor is amazing, and if you do it right you’ll end up with a perfectly cooked, juicy and flavorful tenderloin. The trick is in the marinade and the cooking time, both of which this recipe from Grilling Companion will help you with. Serve with one of the grilled veggie recipes below and roasted or grilled potatoes.

There’s more to grilling than protein! Most types of veggies do well on the grill, even lettuce! The recipes below are sure to please even the pickiest of taste buds. Try the mushrooms as a perfect compliment to steak or the veggie platter if you’re entertaining for a crowd and want something beautiful to present. The sweet potatoes are delicious and a great way to completely skip firing up the oven.

When fruit is grilled, the sugar in it caramelizes and becomes even sweeter. Serve these recipes as-is or pair them with a little vanilla ice cream for a special treat.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x
Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
