If you are keen to get the barbeque out this summer and host a few good dinner parties using this outside cooking method to add a smoky flavour to your meat – take a look at these online recipes.

Whether you want to get away from the typical burger and sausage barbeque staple, or just add some interesting side dishes to the meal, these online recipes will serve you well for whatever the weather or celebration.

Meat:

If you are unwilling to give up the typical barbeque food such as sausages and burgers, then make them a bit different.  You can get different flavoured sausages with apples and pears in them from you butchers; this will add sweetness to the meat, and cut through the fat.

Try making your own beef burgers, they will be more juicy and flavoursome and cheaper than buying readymade. 

All you need to make your own burgers is some minced meat, an egg and bread crumbs to bind the meat and some herbs and spices of your choice.  If you fancy some burgers with a bit of spice then try adding a pinch of cumin powder to the recipe.

Why not try cooking fish on the barbeque. There are many Caribbean recipes available online. Barbequed kings prawns will taste great with that smoky flavour from outside cooking, and a bit of lemon squeezed on them – just make sure you cook them on a skewer to prevent them from falling down the grill.

Alternatively, trout or sardines taste great when cooked on the barbeque, and they do not take that long to cook either.

Side Dishes:

Some great vegetarian recipes for the non-meat eaters in the group usually revolve around vegetarian burgers.  Instead why not try halloumi skewers mixed with red and green peppers.  This cheese cooks really well on a barbeque as if you time it right, it will caramelise on the outside and remain gooie on the inside.

 

Among your usual summer salad why not make your own coleslaw and potato salad, or try drizzling olive oil over sliced ripe tomatoes with basil and pepper to garnish.
