Australia Day BBQ recipe ideas

You’ve just gotten over the Christmas and New Year madness, only to find yourself agreeing to host an Australia Day party, food and all. Fear not! Whether you’re celebrating with a huge group or a small gathering, we’ve got your Barbecue recipe ideas covered.

Nibbly Bits

In the hope that you’re not all prawned out after Christmas, grab a bucket load of prawns and throw a shrimp on the barbie with this grilled lime & chilli prawn recipe. Remove the heads from the prawns and split them down the centre so there is no need for messy peeling when it comes time to devour them!

And as Australians love their avocados, we had to include this ultra tasty, zesty guacamole recipe. And for the ultimate Australia Day finger food, you can’t go past good old cocktail franks! This recipe from DON Smallgoods for fresh cocktail frank wraps gives the humble frank a fancy little dress up, and they really are quite yum.

Meaty Ideas

Nothing is more Aussie than the classic summer barbie, so fire it up and get cooking! And as Sam Kekovich tells us, we all need to eat Aussie lamb on Australia Day, so the barbecued butterflied leg of lamb is our pick. It’s succulent and tender with a bit of a modern twist with the Asian marinade.

You could be even more Aussie and clebrate our national day with this great Aussie beef burger. To finish off your selection of meaty morsels, you cannot forget to throw a few snags on the barbie. Try these pork, fresh herb and prune sausages, they are seriously tops!

Salad Time

Some say you don’t make friends with salad, but a greenery on your Australia Day is essential we think. To keep it delicious, try the greek-style mushrooms with haloumi salad. All you really need to do is chuck the mushrooms and haloumi on the barbie then get the kids to lend a hand and toss all of the ingredients together. To keep everyone happy, even the health nuts, whip up a bowl of the quinoa, chicken and feta salad. The pop of fruity pomegranate flavour will surprise and delight. And for a bit of classic Aussie beetroot at your barbie without those sticky juices running down your arms, give the beetroot salad with balsamic dressing a go.
