To help your summer along, Foobooz plans to give you some recipes by notable chefs and bartenders in Philadelphia. We’re calling it the DIY Down the Shore series, and we’ll be posting them all week. We’re bringing Philly’s dining scene into your summer homes.

Keep the coals hot, because this summer spent seaside is made for grilling. Chef Eli Collins, exec at Pub & Kitchen, says it best, “I think cooking at the Shore should be simple, centered around outdoor cooking and celebrating summer produce.”

We couldn’t agree more and the recipe chef Collins has chosen to share is precisely that. A chili rubbed skirt steak with cherry tomato vinaigrette that sounds exactly like what you should be cooking this weekend.
