British BBQ Summertime Favourites

The British summer is a glorious time to fire up the barbecue and indulge in mouth-watering culinary creations. From perfectly grilled meats to smoky vegetables and delectable desserts, the possibilities are endless. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of British BBQ summertime favourites, exploring a variety of interesting dishes that will take your outdoor cooking to new heights.

Classic Meat Delights.

Of course meat normally always takes centre stage at any British BBQ, and there's a vast range of options to tantalize your taste buds. Start with classic favourites like juicy beef burgers, succulent lamb chops, and marinated chicken skewers. For the more adventurous, try cooking a whole spatchcocked chicken or slow-roasted pork shoulder, allowing the flavours to infuse and the meat to become tender and irresistible.

Flavourful Veggie Creations.

Vegetarians and veggie-loving barbecue enthusiasts have plenty of options too. Grilled halloumi cheese is a popular choice, providing a salty and slightly charred flavour. Create vibrant vegetable skewers using a variety of colourful peppers, onions, courgettes, and cherry tomatoes. Grilled cauliflower is another fantastic choice as it soaks up the smoky flavours and become a delicious meaty alternative or side dish.

Exciting Seafood.

British coastlines offer a bounty of fresh seafood, making it a fantastic addition to your BBQ spread. Grilled prawns or king prawn skewers are quick and easy to prepare, simply marinated in garlic and lemon for a burst of flavour. Whole fish, such as sea bass or salmon, can be wrapped in foil with herbs and cooked to perfection on the grill, ensuring moist and flaky results.

Unique Side Dishes.

Elevate your BBQ experience with a selection of enticing side dishes. Consider serving a classic potato salad with a creamy dressing, or try grilled sweet potatoes for a healthier alternative. Thai summer rolls make a delightful alternative to traditional green salads as a side dish for BBQs, offering a refreshing and healthy option. These rice paper rolls can be filled with anything from vibrant vegetables, to king prawns or tofu.

Who said the barbecue was only for savoury dishes? Grilled peaches or pineapple slices are a delicious treat when lightly caramelized and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. For an extra indulgent twist, try grilling bananas filled with chocolate and marshmallows, creating a gooey and irresistible delight.
