It can be a struggle thinking up tasty dinner ideas that your whole whanau will love, so we've done the hard work for you and put together our favourite fast and simple BBQ dishes that are loved by our family.
We're well and truly in to spring now, with hot summer days just around the corner, so it's time to dust off the old BBQ and make the most of the longer days.
Here are some of our favourite meals that you can do on the bbq:
Summery, fresh and zingy, our Kanuka Glazed Chicken Skewers are perfect by themselves as a delicious snack, or place on top of a fresh garden salad and you've got a complete meal.
This is a fun fakeaway meal you can make at home. You can whip these up and you'll have lots of happy full pukus at your whare.
Tacos are a summer favourite and these quick and tasty caramelised pork tacos have the perfect combo of juiciness, zing and crunch.
If you don't have all the ingredients don't worry, just use what you have for the slaw, or why not add in some fresh avocado as a guacamole.
Salmon only needs a couple of minutes cooking each side, so this is the ultimate fast food! We love serving this salmon dish with fresh salad greens out of our garden, so you'll have dinner on the table in no time.
My kids love to eat the salmon with rice, or you can have it with some fresh bread to mop up all the delicious caramelised honey sauce. You could also try this with our Fried Bread - get the recipe here.
