Apricot preserves add a touch of sweetness to the mushrooms, shrimp and cheese inside these grilled quesadillas. Or cook them in a hot skillet until lightly browned. —Susan Manning, Burlington, North Carolina
"This grilling recipe has been in our family for many years and always gets rave reviews," comments Jane Bone. The Cape Coral, Florida subscriber combines tender marinated shrimp with bacon strips to produce these delightful appetizers that will surely disappear in a hurry.
I like to liven up typical tossed salad with tender grilled shrimp, bread cubes and feta cheese. The colorful dish is an attractive addition to party buffets. —Veronica Callaghan, Glastonbury, Connecticut
Grilling might become a year-round affair when you taste these scrumptious kabobs from Marie Rizzio of Interlochen, Michigan. This elegant entrée combines plump shrimp, tender swordfish and scallops with chunks of veggies and pineapple.
I prefer grilling in the summer because you don't need to turn on the stove and heat up the house. If you want to get fancy, serve it in a chilled martini glass for a beautiful presentation. The rice and/or shrimp can be cooked a day ahead and refrigerated until serving.&$151;Lindsay Matuszak, Reno, Nevada
