Labor Day is the grand finale of summer season. Savor all the delicious summer produce and crank up the grill for a festive weekend with friends and family. Here are our picks for recipes to make this Labor Day:

Middle Eastern Nachos

Compound Butter

Keep a flavorful compound butter on the table to spread onto bread or add a dollop onto Grilled Branzino (see recipe below) for an extra burst of flavor.  The foil trick in the recipe makes crispy skin with easy cleanup while keeping all that buttery flavor in the fish.

Pasha is the perfect blend for adding to kebabs with a great balance of chocolatey Urfa chili, tart sumac, and herby oregano. Tuck these mini kebabs into pitas or include them in an array small plates.
