BBQ Grilled Sardines

BBQ Grilled Sardines

BBQ Grilled Sardines

  • Prep Time35 min
  • Cook Time5 min
  • Total Time40 min
  • Yield2 Servings

Ingredients

For the BBQ Grilled Sardines

  • 8 whole sardines de-scaled & gutted
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbs Harissa paste
  • Moroccan style Couscous
  • 400ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbs Olive oil
  • Wholemeal bread (uncut loaf)
  • 1 x small Red chilli thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbs coriander leaves finely chopped
  • Mixed Salad leaves
  • 5 Tbs Greek style yoghurt

Method

Preparing the BBQ Grilled Sardines

1

Start the BBQ and setup for direct cook. About ¾ chimney of briquettes or charcoal. A gas BBQ can also be used here cooking direct over the burner.

2

In a small bowl add 2 Tbs Harissa paste and a 1 tsp of olive oil, give it a mix. Coat each side of the sardines.

3

In two small ramekins split the Greek style yoghurt and add a Tbs of harissa paste on top of each. Start preparing the couscous.

4

Using two tapas style ramekins (or whatever you have to hand), add the balsamic vinegar then add the extra virgin olive oil. Cut the wholemeal bread into chunky batons.

5

Place the sardines in a fish rack if you have one (helps to turn the fish without sticking to the grates), or place direct on the grates. Lightly grease the grates with a little oil if not using a fish rack. Sprinkle a little salt over the sardines.

6

Cook the sardines over direct heat for 2-3 minutes per side or until cooked through. Internal temperature should be 60°C/140°F.

7

Cut the lemon in half and grill direct for a few minutes until lightly charred.

8

Place the couscous on a serving platter, top with 4 sardines, add some chopped red chilli and coriander, add some salad leaves and the bread.

9

Finally place the dipping harissa/yoghurt combo and the extra virgin olive oil /balsamic vinegar dipping oil for the bread onto the platter.

10

Squeeze the grilled lemon over the sardines and enjoy!

Chimichurri Steak with a Coffee Rub

Chimichurri Steak

Chimichurri Steak with a Coffee Rub

  • Prep Time20 min
  • Cook Time15 min
  • Total Time35 min
  • Yield2 Servings

Ingredients

For the Steak

  • 12oz Bone-in ribeye

For the Coffee Rub

  • 3 Tbs fresh, finely ground coffee
  • 1 Tbs sea salt
  • 1 Tbs freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbs Dark Brown Sugar

For the Chimichurri

  • Bunch of Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried Tarragon
  • 1 garlic cloves
  • 1 shallot
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes (you can add more if you like it hot)
  • 2 1/2 Tbs olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Method

Preparing the Chimichurri Steak

1

Place all the ingredients in a mini chopper and blitz. If it’s too thick add some water. Taste and adjust as necessary. I like mine sharp so sometimes add more lemon juice or red wine vinegar. This can be made the day before and will even keep in the fridge for up to a week. Making it in advance allows the flavours to come together.

2

Get a nice bone in Rib Eye. Last time I made this we injected it with some Quiet Man Whiskey don’t worry if you don’t have an injector it’s just as nice without.

3

Sprinkle with Coffee Rub and leave at room temperature for 20 minutes. This can be done whilst you light the BBQ. Set up the BBQ for direct heat and bring your coals to a high heat.

4

I like my steak medium rare so we usually BBQ it to an internal temperature of 140°F or 60°C medium would be 155°F or 65°C.

5

Once cooked tent with foil (not tightly wrapped) and leave for 5-10 minutes, this allows the steak to rest and makes it tenderer. Slice and serve drizzled with the Chimichurri. Serve with Bacon wrapped onion rings, portobello mushrooms or vine tomatoes all which can be cooked on the BBQ too.

Angus & Oink Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings

Angus & Oink Chicken Wings

  • Prep Time30 min
  • Cook Time40 min
  • Total Time1 hr 10 min
  • Yield4 Servings

Ingredients

For the Chicken Wings

  • 1kg wings
  • 20g Angus and Oink “The General Rub” (you can add more to taste if you like them spicy)
  • 10g baking powder
  • 10g self raising flour
  • 1 pint buttermilk
  • Angus & Oink Rampant Angus Sauce

Method

Preparing the Chicken Wings

1

Soak the wings overnight in the buttermilk, if you can’t get buttermilk you can use 250ml milk with 1Tbs of lemon juice. I like to separate the wings at the joint but you can leave them intact if desired. After marinating take them out of the milk, drain but don’t pat dry.

2

Mix the baking powder, rub and flour together in a bowl and toss your wings. Put them on a plate and leave in the fridge to dry for 30 mins.

3

We are lucky to have a rotisserie basket but you could cook them indirect on the grill turning a few times. Cook for 40 mins.

4

Remove from bbq, and toss in sauce of choice, in this case Rampant Angus Scotch Bonnet Ketchup. Serve with blue cheese sauce and celery.
