When it comes to an Australian summer, nothing quite beats the enticing aroma and mouthwatering flavours of a barbecue. Whether you’re a seasoned grill master or just eager to improve your BBQ skills, this guide will explore the finest Market options for your next BBQ. We’ll also share straightforward grilling tips and tasty accompaniments.
There’s a certain magic in grilling a beautifully marbled Ribeye Steak. Season it generously with salt and pepper before grilling. Preheat your BBQ to medium-high heat and sear the steak for approximately 4-5 minutes on each side for that perfect medium-rare. Pair it with a dollop of herb-infused butter and a side of homemade potato salad.
For a tasty seafood option, try your hand at prawn skewers. Marinate the prawns in a mixture of olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and your favourite herbs for about 30 minutes. Thread them onto skewers and grill over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side until they turn that vibrant shade of pink. Serve them with a zesty mango salsa.
Lemon-Herb Chicken Thighs
Lemon-herb chicken thighs offer a delightful burst of flavour. Marinate the chicken in a mixture of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and your preferred herbs (or purchase them pre-done at one of our Poulterers!). Grill over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes per side. Serve these succulent thighs with grilled asparagus and quinoa salad.
Grilled Veggie Medley and Fruit Skewers
For a vegetarian and fruity twist, grill a medley of fresh local veg and fruit. Brush the veggies with a light drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then grill them over medium heat for 5-6 minutes per side. Serve the veggies with a simple drizzle of basil pesto and sprinkle some chilli salt on the watermelon skewers for an intriguing blend of flavours.
For a sweeter treat, thread watermelon cubes and mint leaves onto skewers for a refreshing treat. Grill very briefly before serving with Greek yoghurt and a dollop of honey.
Camberwell, it’s time to fire up the BBQ and relish the best of Australian produce this summer!
