The smell of barbecues,
the warm sunshine and your family and friends! All of these signal the start of
the fantastic British summer and what a brilliant time of year it is!
We’re hoping for some
good weather this May bank holiday so we’re able to get outside and fire up the
old barbecue! We had to do a post on barbecues for this bank holiday and after
extensive research, these are our 3 favourite barbecue dishes. So if you are
hoping to dust off your barbecue and use it this weekend, take a look at these
three scrummy dishes!
Chargrilled Halloumi and Vegetable
Just looking at the
picture of these delicious skewers makes us hungry! A perfect alternative to
the traditional meat skewers that are served at barbecues, these chargrilled
halloumi and vegetable skewers are a delicious vegetarian dish that every will
take a shine to!
You can serve the
chargrilled halloumi with any vegetables that you want to, but to make it feel
and taste like summer, we recommend serving with pepper, courgette and possibly
some perfectly ripe tomatoes.
The combination of
flavours that these skewers provide is brilliant, with the halloumi and
vegetables being mixed with lemon juice and mint to provide a really refreshing
taste. To see the full recipe, click here!
Ginger and Honey Chicken Wings
How good do these
ginger and honey chicken wings look? The brilliant Jamie Oliver has done it
again serving up a mouth-watering recipe that will leave everyone at your
barbecue wanting just one more bite of these chicken wings.
The recipe from the
main man himself recommends that you let the chicken wings marinate in the
ginger and honey marinade over night before barbecuing them. Once they are suitably
barbecued, the marinade will become deliciously sticky and the outside of the
chicken wings will go crispy. A guaranteed favourite at a BBQ! If you fancy
giving these wings a go this weekend, click here

Barbecued Sirloin with Chimichurri
It wouldn't be a barbecue without steak,
and this recipe has an Argentinian twist to it thanks to the Chimichurri sauce
that BBC Food recommends that you serve with it.
You can cook the steak to your own personal liking
and then add the Chimichurri sauce for a delicious burst of flavour, as well as
a bit of spice! You could even slice it up and add it to a salad using the
chimichurri sauce as a dressing. For the steak, we recommend some sirloin or
possible thinner cuts of good quality minute steak. If you would like to see
this recipe in full, simply visit the website here!
We hope these three fantastic dishes have given you some inspiration for what to cook on your BBQ this weekend, now all we need is for the weather to stay dry!
