I'm being optimistic and planning a BBQ for the bank holiday weekend and I wanted to do something a bit different for a change, other than the usual burgers, sausages etc. Salad ideas and other things would be appreciated too, and there will be one vegetarian. Thanks
My barbeque staples are:
pork kebabs (pork fillet marinated in hoisin sauce, soy sauce, chinese wine, sesame oil) - cut fillet into chunks, marinate and then put on skewars with pieces of pepper, onion and cherry tomatoes.
chicken satay - chichen fillet cut into strips an marinated in a mixtsure of peanut butter and chilli sauce - and a bit of seasme oil. Mix up a sililar sauce diluted with a bit of water to dip them in after coking
tiger prawns marinated in chilli sauce, lime juice, garlic, ginger, honey and sesame oil
I don't really "do" salads - apart from a green salad and a tomato one - beef toms sliced up and drizzled with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, fresh basil. Do in advance to teh juices all mix together.
chicken wings are a hot fav for bbqs. You can marinate them beforehand, but i refer them plain .. and can drizzle some honey over after
yep, tiger prawns too
corn on the cob, sweet potatoes, etc wrap well in kitchen foil and place with the coal .. move at times, then when cooked, eat!
huge mushrooms in bbq, then bit of salt, pepper and put slice of cheese on top to melt
boil some baby potatoes, drain, cool then add mayo and chopped chives, refrigerate (i prefer overnight) .. yummy
i love ceasar salads ..
all rounder salad that kids love is simply slice cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, add to salad bowl with large can of sweetcorn .. add cooked pasta fusilli or spirali .. leave plain to drizzle preferred dressing or good with salad cream
