Chicken is marinated in a combination of beer, lime juice and spices before barbecuing. Can also be fried
This is a quick and simple hamburger recipe that I threw together one night. Pretty good for a bloke! Bung it on a roll with tomatoes, lettuce and beetroot and tomato or barbecue sauce.
Sometimes I add fresh or dried chillies to the marinade to spice it up a little. I serve it warm, with lettuce in a fajita or in Lebanese bread .
This is a great recipe for falafel. It is delicious served in a pita bread with yoghurt cucumber sauce and tomatoes.
Although higher in fat than white breast meat, the darker-fleshed chicken pieces – the legs (drumsticks) and thighs – are a more concentrated source of minerals, including zinc and some iron.
Adding grated apple to chicken burgers not only gives a fruity flavour that complements the meat and herbs, but also lightens up the meaty patties and provides fibre. Served in buns with honey mustard and fresh watercress, these are a great alternative to beef burgers.
Tortilla is made from the simplest of ingredients – eggs, onions and potatoes – cooked like a flat omelette and served warm or cold, cut into wedges. All kinds of extra ingredients can be added, such as asparagus, peas and mushrooms.
The best of all salad worlds, a great mix of pasta salad, potato salad and green salad too. Serve warm as an excellent side for fish or even just as a Sunday night dinner on its own.
These corn fritters are great anytime of the day, add/subtract the amount of spicy ingredients to suit you. I've also made these into bite size pieces for finger food at parties.
Perfect on a warm day, a tangy sandwich that will kick your tastebuds back to life!
I don't like mayonnaise - so this potato salad doesn't have any. Tastes good either warm or cold.
This is the easiest quick meal I know! If you can chop an onion this is the recipe for you. You can change the spices around to your own taste, I make this with garlic and mixed Italian herbs sometimes and it works out just great. This travels well cold so it's a good choice to bring to a BBQ.
These rich crab and prawn cakes are spiced with mustard, Worcestershire sauce and a little cayenne pepper then coated with breadcrumbs and fried until the outside is a crunchy golden brown.
These are delicious made on the bbq or indoors on the stove. The patties are light and very tasty.
Great when you only have a small amount of a selection of vegetables as you can interchange the ingredients
Crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside.
The closest you'll get to a gourmet steak sandwich - pepper-fried steaks with roasted tomatoes, baby spinach and a mustard-lime mayonnaise. Roast the tomatoes beforehand in the oven or under the grill.
A great option for vegetarian or vegan BBQ. These chickpea burgers are easy to prepare in advance and can be cooked on a barbecue plate or in a frypan.
This is something I made once when I was bored. It is a quick and easy favourite in my family now. The time stated is if you are a VERY slow cook. Chilling is optional.
This is a marinade for prawns with the fresh kick of tequila, lime and garlic. You can cook the prawns on the barbecue if you prefer.
