If you prepare chopped vegetables, roast them on aluminum foil or in a specific tray, so that they are not lost on the grill.A barbecue classic
To start off on the right foot, dare with a pork chop (or beef steak) accompanied by mushrooms and roasted potatoes (does not require more than 20 minutes of attention).
Roast the wedges and whole mushrooms first, remove these when they are golden brown and leave the potatoes, while the meat is made. Paint the cutlet with a pinch of olive oil, spend a minute and a half on each side and give it several turns until it is to the point you like.
Serve with a cheese sheet on top and with a sprout salad. It will look great on you.From the grilled sea
Prawns, prawns, prawns and other fruits of our seas are delicious grilled and made in just a few minutes. Prepare them in portions of six so you can serve them on the barbecue as they deserve. When they change the color, you can remove them from the grill. Add the salt when they are on the plate and sprinkle them with a few drops of lemon before serving.
If you have enough time, you can prepare at home the base of this typical Mexican dish (wheat or corn pancakes), although in any supermarket you can find them already formed. For the filling you need: corn, pepper of different colors diced, tomato, diced chicken, chopped onion and sliced cheddar cheese. Fill them to taste as a cake or shaped like a pie. To close them, spread the edges with a pinch of beaten egg.
Once prepared, before putting them on the grill, spray the cake with a mist of water. In three minutes they will be ready.Pork ribs
Very easy to prepare, even for those who rarely approach the kitchen. You need about 250 g of meat per person and have different types of sauces to add later. Paint the piece of meat with a pinch of olive oil so that in the first moments, it does not stick to the grill. When the meat loses its original color, add fine aromatic herbs (rosemary, fennel, basil ...) and salt.
A very tasty option is to add to the meat, half-cooked, a sauce based on honey and lemon.Lemon Chicken Skewer
As easy as chopping chicken meat, assembling the skewer and putting it on the barbecue. But, to make it perfect, we tell you a couple of tricks. Wet the chopsticks before pricking the chicken, so you avoid burning with the coals and the meat glides better. Sandwich chicken and vegetables (type pepper, tomato, onion ...), with the heat they release juices and thus the meat does not dry out. Turn the chopsticks several times and on the last, add a dash of natural lemon and salt to the skewer.Roasted dorado
You need a clean gilthead, per person. Prepare cherry tomatoes, onion and diced potatoes. Make foil packages with potatoes and vegetables and others with fish, separately. To each packet of fish, add a pinch of white wine and lemon. Put them on the barbecue and in 10 minutes they will be ready to drink.
