It is summer and it is time to get out the barbecue. Bart Spices have…
BBQ weather is nearly here. Why not try these Japanese style barbecue recipes to add a different flavour to your grill?
Recently the weather has been much warmer. It’s been nice enough to put the deckchairs into the garden and enjoy the sunshine. When the weather is warm it is always an incentive to get out the barbecue. Nothing says summer more than enjoying your food outside in the sunshine.
A barbecue is also a great way to get out of cooking. There is something primal about cooking food over hot coals that makes the men want to take over. My husband and son have fun watching the meat cook and I can sit and relax until it is ready. As long as the salads and sauces are ready then my job is done.
Japanese Style BBQ Recipes from Yutaka
Recently Yutaka got in touch to see if I would like to try out their Japanese style BBQ recipes. I am always happy to try new recipes so tried them out at the weekend. Yutaka provide a range of Japanese food products that help you create delicious and tasty Japanese recipes. I first tried their products when making sushi which was really tasty. There are two different recipes, Sushi kebabs and Panko burgers. Both of these would add an interesting twist to your barbecue.
Take some chicken, salmon or vegetables and leave them to soak in the Japanese BBQ marinade. After they have been left overnight thread the meat onto some skewers with other vegetables. The original recipe calls for courgettes, peppers and salmon for an mix of Japanese flavours. I chose to use chicken, peppers and mushrooms. Cook the kebabs on the barbecue until they are done. When they are ready add them to a bed of sushi rice and wrap in a sheet of nori. This is a nice easy way to serve the kebabs and also adds a lot of flavour. Any leftover sushi rice can be made into a side salad with the addition of some spring onions, peppers and cucumber.
Japanese Style Burgers
The family really enjoyed these recipes and we will be trying them again soon. We are planning a big barbecue for the bank holiday weekend. I suspect now that I have said that it will rain.
If you are looking for other recipes for your barbecue it is worth making some home made tomato relish. This is much nicer than shop bought and will impress your guests. Do you have any favourite barbecue recipes? Let me know below.
