When you think of homemade Texas food, you might think of greasy meat, doughy breads, savory soups and fatty desserts. The summer is a time to gather around the fire pit or barbecue and enjoy some delicious meals together. There’s no shame in eating good old fashioned cooking, especially from Texas, which is one state known for its good eats. Some Texas recipes however, are still just as delicious as they are healthy.

Spicy Shrimp Salad

This dish includes a combination of Asian and Mexican flavors. The dish, as you can imagine, is shrimp based, with 3/4 pound of cooked shrimp over a bed of mixed greens, paired with chili sauce, mint leaves, cinantro leaves, and more. It’s best served with a white wine.

Shrimp promotes a lot of health benefits, such as weight loss. This dish is best served immediately after prepared.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Texas barbeques and cook outs are no more than burgers, hot dogs, and anything grilled–which means also corn. Grilled corn is a classic Texan side, and grilled corn does not require butter or salt. In fact, it’s best served straight off the grill. With a bit of healthy olive oil to taste and a sprinkling of herbs if you’re feeling fancy, grilled corn is a tasty treat.
