How to Make a Healthy BBQ at Home

1. Barbecued Squid Salad 

For the Squid: 

For the salad

Method:

1. Heat the barbecue. Meanwhile, marinate the squid for at least 30 mins, or up to 4 hrs. First, slash the squid tubes all over at 5mm-1cm intervals on each side, cutting through most of the flesh but leaving the sides intact. If there are any particularly large tubes, cut them in half width-ways. Put into a non-metallic bowl with the other squid ingredients and leave to marinate.

2. For the salad, toss the onion, mango and chilli with the lime juice (from the limes used for the squid) and a pinch of salt and leave for at least 10 mins, or until the onion turns pink. Add the beans to one side of the bowl.

3. Halve, stone and scoop the avocado into the salad bowl, then add plenty of seasoning and season the squid with sea salt.

4.When the barbecue is ready, barbecue the squid tubes and tentacles for no more than 11⁄2 mins in total – the flesh should just change from greyish to opaque and shrink up into a spiral shape where you’ve made your cuts. Toss the salad ingredients together very roughly, pile onto a platter and top with the hot squid and coriander. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and serve with lime wedges on the side.

2. Chopped Herb and Pomegranate Salad

Ingredients:

Method: 

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon zest and juice, pomegranate molasses, olive oil, sugar and some seasoning.

2. Add cucumbers, tomatoes, deseeded and finely chopped, pomegranate seeds and parsley, dill and mint. Toss everything together and serve.

Chilli Ginger Lamb Chops 

Ingredients: 

Method: 

  1. Put the garlic in a bowl with the ginger, lemon juice, oil, spices and seasoning. Blitz with a hand blender until smooth, then use to coat the lamb chops on both sides. Leave to marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.

2. Heat a barbecue until hot. Barbecue the chops over the coals for 3 mins on each side until cooked but still pink and juicy in the centre.

Grilled Corn with Chilli, Coriander and Feta 

Ingredients: 

Method

1. Cook the corncobs in a large pan of boiling water for 5 mins. Remove the pan from the heat and leave the corn in the water until ready to grill.

2. Heat a griddle barbecue using direct heat. Just before serving, remove the cobs from the water, pat dry and brush all over with mayonnaise and chilli flakes. Season to taste, then cook for 5 mins, turning regularly until grill marks appear. Sprinkle the cobs with feta and coriander, then serve immediately with lime wedges to squeeze over when eating.

Italian Bean and Olive Salad 

Ingredients

Method: 

  1. On the barbecue, under the grill or over a flame, blacken the peppers all over, then pop into a bowl and cover with cling film. Once cool, peel, deseed and cut into strips, keeping any juices.

2. Cook the beans in boiling salted water until crunchy but not squeaky, then drain and drop straight into iced water. To serve, toss everything together, adding the shredded basil at the last minute, and scattering with the small basil leaves to finish.
