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


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


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.



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


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”.
