More and more BBQ fanatics are getting quite creative with their BBQ food ideas, aside from just your typical beef burger.
Top 4 Unique Items to Grill on Your BBQ
Consider some of the following unique and simply weird ideas to throw on your grill. Get even more ideas from top BBQ websites like BBQAtYourPlace.com.au:
Grilled Clams – Most people associate a BBQ with grilled meat, not necessarily grilled shellfish. However, this is a great option for those who are looking to do something different. Clams are quite affordable, and can be quickly and easily grilled to perfection on the barbeque! They’re also great for appetizers, and can be popped into your mouth right off the grill.
Grilled Radicchio – Radicchio is a hearty type of salad, that tends to have a bit of a bite. It is loaded with vitamins and minerals, which makes it a great option for those who are watching their waistlines. Who would ever think of putting salad on the grill? Because radicchio is so hearty and stiff, it will survive the hot grill. Drizzle it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle some salt for a simply irresistible grilled treat!
Pizza – Grilled pizza on the BBQ is so incredibly delicious, and somewhat mimics wood-oven pizzas. You can place the dough directly on the grill, or else separate the grill bars and the dough with a sheet of aluminum foil. Top your pizza with whatever you like, and enjoy your barbequed pizza like none other! However, you don’t need to invent your own recipes, top grill caterers will often feature some of the most creative items on their online menus, I personlally often find inspiration in the BBQ At Your Place menus.
Grilled Pineapple Skewers – Fruit doesn’t have to be served fresh at a backyard BBQ! Try placing cubes of pineapple on a skewer, and barbeque them along side your meat and vegetables. Grilled pineapple provides a great accompaniment to any grilled food, and tastes great when paired with a freshly grilled piece of meat or poultry. Experiment with other fruits as well, such as berries or peaches.
BBQ – The Options Are Seemingly Unlimited!
The options are endless when it comes to grilling food on the BBQ. You can really get creative and invent some of the most delicious meals by simply doing a little experimentation. There is really nothing off limits – test out fish, fruit, and maybe even desserts on the grill! You might be surprised with the delicious outcome.
