If you’re tired of serving up standard burgers and hot dogs, try something a little different this summer with a few of our favourite unique BBQ recipes below:
Grilled Onion Blossoms
A favourite for everyone, this is the perfect app or accompaniment to your regular BBQ menu. You get a whole onion, cut it so it resembles a flower, add the recommended seasonings including pepper, horseradish, and dijon mustard, pop it on the grill, and wait for the mouth-watering magic.
Jamaican Street Corn
Grilled corn on the cob is always a summer staple. But if you want to crank things up a notch, this recipe will do the trick. Similar to Mexican street corn, this version is even better. Combine jerk spice, curry and mayo topped with coconut flakes and you’ll experience a whole new burst of flavours that’ll make you want to keep it on the menu for every future BBQ.
Steak with Whiskey Marinade
If you’re a fan of steak and whiskey, you can combine both for an outstanding main. Sometimes, the beauty is in the unique marinades that you can use on your favourite slabs of meat, and this one is guaranteed to impress.
Tofu Skewers with Memphis-Style Dry Rub
If you’re hosting a summer BBQ, don’t forget about the vegetarians! Going without meat shouldn’t mean you need to go without flavour. And tofu is a great option to place on the grill. With this Memphis-style rub, it might even get those meat eaters curious.
Grilled Cabbage Wedges
To add some more side greens to your table while still creating something tasty and unique, try grilled cabbage wedges with a Thai-inspired dressing. Super quick and simple to make, they’ll tingle your taste buds every time.
You might be scratching your head with the idea of putting watermelon on the BBQ. But they are surprisingly delicious when topped with some honey, mint and lime. It’s an ideal sweet treat when you want something new and refreshing on those hot summer days.
Grilled Portobello Mushroom Tacos
Portobello mushrooms are a favourite for vegetarians because of their meaty-like texture. This also makes them great for throwing on the grill. Cooking them low and slow is the key to getting the most flavour for veggie style tacos.
