Paleo Barbecue Recipes

We’ve finally started to have a few sunny days – the perfect time to get the barbecue out and try out some Paleo Barbecue Recipes!

There were a few recipes I’d wanted to try in Mark Sisson’s cookbook, The Primal Blueprint Cookbook, which had been waiting for some sunshine.  I amended the recipes according to which ingredients I could get – and what I already had in my kitchen.

I managed to get hold of some turkey (I don’t know why it’s not more popular in Australia?), an essential ingredient in the Turkey Kebabs I wanted to make.  I also made Green Chili Burgers, based on a recipe in the book.  Sadly mine were made with regular beef and not bison as the recipe suggests (another type of meat I’ve not seen in Australia).

Turkey Kebabs

Ingredients:

200g minced (ground) turkey
1 egg (I’m using omega 3 enriched eggs at the moment)
1 tablespoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon each of garlic powder, cumin, paprika & salt
¼ teaspoon of cinnamon & cayenne pepper
1 spoon of olive oil
 

Method:

It doesn’t get much simpler!  I simply added the ingredients (except the oil) to the food processor and blended until everything was well mixed in.  I then formed the meat into kebabs on wooden skewers and coated with a little olive oil.

The kebabs were then barbecued until cooked thoroughly.

Burgers

Ingredients:

200g minced (ground) beef
1 teaspoon dried chilli
2 tablespoons coriander (cilantro)
Half a small finely diced onion
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon chilli powder & salt
2 eggs

Method:

I put everything except the eggs in the food processor and blended well.  I then formed the meat into burger shapes and cooked thoroughly on the barbecue.  Whilst the burgers were cooking I fried the eggs and served them on top of the burgers.

Along with the meat, I made a simple salad to complete the meal.

With it being this easy to make burgers and kebabs, I don’t know why anyone would buy them ready-made!

I love doing fresh green prawns on the bbq – marinate them in some garlic, ginger and olive oil and squeeze a bit of lime or lemon over them as they sizzle. SO YUM! A whole baby trout wrapped in foil with handfuls of fresh herbs and some butter is also really good. I so miss the seafood in Australia – I’m living in Thailand at the moment and the seafood here is nothing compared to whats available “down under”.

They sound fantastic Madeline! I thought seafood would be good in Thailand? Is there not much variety available?
