If you live in a cold country in summer you have to BBQ as much as you can. Use up the opportunity for the hot weather. Grilling every day gives you an excuse to be outside (not that you need one) and you get great food. Grilling is easier than most other forms of cooking and it is quick. Call a few friends over and you can have an amazing BBQ. It doesn’t even require much effort. Whether you are a chicken, beef or vegetarian we have summer grilling ideas that you will love!
Summer grilling ideas
Olive oil salt and pepper and grill. You can of course do this on the frying pan as well.
Brown sugar and cinnamon and grill the pineapples. This is great for a healthy dessert
· 2 medium zucchini, Slice them to ¼ inch thickness (long pieces) 1 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
· 1 tsp parsley flakes
· 1 tsp basil flakes
· 1/2 tsp garlic powder
· black pepper
· 1 pound lean minced beef
· 1tsp seasoned salt
· ½ tsp garlic powder
· ½ tsp onion powder
· ½ tsp black pepper
· 1 tablespoon oil
To get the best results wait till the end to marinate your minced beef. When you put salt in beef it leaves water so when you marinate too early it makes the beef a bit dry. So wait till prior to BBQing before you put the marination. Don’t freeze your meat for burgers.
Spicy Chicken (Chicken tikka or Tandoori Chicken)
· 1 chicken about 4 pounds
· 2tsp garlic
· 2 tsp ginger
· 2 tsp salt
· 1 tsp chili powder

If you aren’t used to eating spicy food put less chili powder. Keep the chicken tikka marinated for at least 5 hours (more hours is better).
