10 sizzling barbecue recipes
Forget the burgers and chicken wings - how about these lamb steaks with barbecued ratatouille, or grilled eton mess skewers?
We love lighting up the barbecue in the warm summer months, and treating our friends to a feast. Meat and vegetables taste amazing when cooked over a charcoal grill, and these recipes are particularly tasty!
Barbecued Beef Skewers
These kebabs are simple to make and cook fast on a barbecue. Rather than eating them in a wrap, why not serve them on a slick of hummus – either buy your favourite or make a batch – and then top the meat with a really zesty mix of red onion, sumac and fresh herbs such as parsley.
James Martin’s Barbecue Lamb Steaks with Ratatouille & Salsa Verde
This is an elegant barbecue recipe that’s perfect for entertaining. Alongside grilling the lamb steaks on a medium heat, you can also use a flameproof pan to cook the ratatouille on the grill as well. Your guests will be seriously impressed with the succulent lamb, and your homemade sauce.
Tom Kerridge's Barbecued Hotdog
If you’re looking for classic grill recipes, then check out this hotdog recipe from Michelin star chef Tom Kerridge. It really elevates the classic hotdog with the yummy addition of charred scallions and bacon.
Barbecued Sweetcorn with Miso Butter
Fresh corn on the cob tastes amazing when grilled on the barbecue and drizzled with butter. This barbecued corn recipe adds an extra boost of umami to the butter with white miso and shio koji paste (a seasoning made of fermented salt and white rice). If you can’t find shio koji, just season the butter with an extra pinch of salt.
Barbecued Tandoori-Style Sea Bream
This simple recipe consists of a whole fish rubbed in tandoori spice mix and placed on your barbecue grill grate to cook until it has crispy skin. We love the pairing of smoke and spice!
James Whetlor’s Barbecued & Herbed Side of Salmon
James Whetlor’s barbecued salmon recipe requires you to use your barbecue as an oven, slowly roasting your salmon on a baking tray. Once the fish is just cooked, brush it with a delicious marinade of fresh chopped herbs and lemon juice. It’s the perfect centrepiece for a barbecue party.
Best Ever Spatchcock Chicken with Coconut & Soy
We simply adore this butterflied chicken recipe, which is basted in a soy sauce and coconut milk marinade and cooked on the barbecue over indirect heat. You spatchcock a chicken by removing its backbone which flattens out the bird; it’s a great way to barbecue because the butterflied chicken meat cooks more quickly.
Loaded BBQ Sweet Potatoes with Tahini Dressing
Vegetarians will love this delicious recipe. The sweet potatoes are wrapped in foil and cooked directly over the embers, then topped with cooked quinoa and a homemade sauce. Serve them up with a fresh green salad.
Grilled Eton Mess Skewers
This easy dessert recipe takes the quintessentially British Eton mess and adds an innovative twist by barbecuing the strawberries. The charcoal will add extra layers of flavour, and your guests will be seriously impressed when you rustle this up for dessert!
Rukmini Iyer’s Barbecued Summer Pudding Packets
If you’re stuck for food ideas for dessert, then check out this celebratory summer pud. It’s the excellent barbecue dessert - cook it over indirect heat and it’ll be ready in minutes.
