The sun doesn’t have his hat on, but we’re not going to let that bother us. We’ve got our raincoats, wellingtons and shorts on. And the barbecue is on, but what shall we put on it? We did some critical research at Seasalt HQ in preparation for a weekend of staunchly British outdoor cooking. Here are our best recipes…

Ultimate BBQ tomato relish
Finely chopped red onion
Juice of 1 lime
Bit of vinegar
Spoonful of sugar
Finely chopped tomatoes (nice ripe ones are best)
Generous dollop of Tomato puree
Paprika
Tiny bit of olive oil

You can also add fancy bits like pepperdews, roast pepper, gherkins, jalapenos etc

BBQ Salmon
Salmon with salt and lemon juice. Whack it in some tin foil… done! Simple, yummy and healthy.

BBQ Mexican Prawns
Skewer some king prawns on a kebab skewer and brush over the following marinade:
3tbs honey
Juice 1 lime
1 chopped chilli
1 handful coriander chopped small
1 clove minced garlic
Glug of olive oil

Japanese Beef (or any kind of meat you like!)
Marinade meat for several hours in a tub of the following:
4tbs mirin
4tbs dark soy sauce
A few drops of fish sauce
Thinly sliced onion
Thinly sliced carrot
4tbs sesame seed oil
Teaspoon of sesame seeds

Then BBQ it good! (all measurements are approx. so do it to taste.)

Fish Parcels
Fillet of white fish, or whole fish such as bass or bream.
Put fish in a foil parcel with enough spare foil to loop over the sides
Chuck in a generous glug of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Couple handfuls of spinach
Some grated fennel
Juice of one lemon and slices of it.
Cover and cook for several minutes

Halloumi Kebabs
Make kebabs from chopped pepper, chopped courgette, whole cherry tomatoes, and cubed halloumi. Spoon over an olive oil and mint dressing.

Mexican Salad (not a BBQ but its good to have a salad!)
2 chopped romaine lettuces
2 grated carrots
Several chopped sticks of celery
Mixed leaf salad
Seeds of half a pomegranate
Whole chopped green chilli

Dressing:
Juice 1 lime
Generous glug of olive oil
Juice half a pomegranate
Salt and pepper
Spoonful of honey

Sticky Donuts
Simply, jammy donuts wrapped in tin foil at the end of a barbeque, toasted for a little while and served with a dollop of clotted cream on top. Deeeelicious!
