Recipe Round-up: Lighter options for a BBQ

With the summer season approaching for those living in the northern hemisphere, I thought I would take this opportunity to re-visit some of my favourite lighter options for BBQs.

I think it is always good to offer guests something which could be considered ‘healthy’ – after all, who doesn’t know at least one person who is on a diet? Of course these dishes are also super tasty and will appeal to everyone.

These Garlic and Chilli BBQ Prawns are ideal as an appetiser or part of a buffet.

Don’t forget that side dishes are important too. This Wild Rice Salad is fresh and full of vegetables.
