SIDES AND STARTERS
BARBECUED SALMON & ZUCCHINI WITH DILLI-LEMON SAUCE
In just 20 minutes, you'll have this summer starter ready to serve up to 8 drooling mouths as soon as they witness its beauty. The final result is thin slices of barbecued bread topped with broken pieces of barbecued salmon, zucchini and complete with a sprinkling of fresh dill-lemon sauce.
BARBECUED CORN WITH FETTA
It’s getting hot in here...but not too hot. Smoky meets sweet and it's time for fun in the sun because this side-starter is one you might not want to share. Delicious and ideal for snacking on between meals, this barbecued corn is a tasty concoction of chilies, fresh lime juice, chopped fresh coriander and more.
Drinks? Lorry Boys Pale Ale, Two Churches Barossa Shiraz or Rock Paper Scissors Moscato.
MOROCCAN SEED SALAD
With the weather heating up, this main feed is perfect for cooling things down. For serving four people, this meal can be prepared in just 15 minutes. This salad includes couscous, sultanas, pepitas, flaked almonds, sesame seeds and more, and is enjoyably filling yet lighter on the stomach so that you can ensure your guests have just enough room for dessert.
PRAWN COCKTAIL BAGUETTES
Fishy meets French in this sandwich-wrapped creation of pure bliss, providing you the opportunity to slightly modify fillings as you please. The main ingredients include whole-egg mayonnaise, cooked medium king prawns, Lebanese cucumbers, avocado and more.
