Grilled Lamb Chops – Madras Hot!
Features Editor, Danielle, has been experimenting in the kitchen in preparation for BBQ season.
“Last week I co-erced my other half into visiting the dark depths of the back of the shed, in order to retrieve the barbecue. After a thorough clean, a trip to the shop for coal and much begging for BBQ dinner from the kids, we sat down at the table to eat… yes you guessed it… burgers.
While it’s nice to enjoy the odd burger on a barbecue from time to time, I crave something spicy and interesting to cook al fresco. And so over the past week I’ve been experimenting in my kitchen, coming up with ideas to inject a little excitement into cooking, on a budget that won’t break the bank. You will be amazed what amazing twists you can make on traditional barbecue food with just a couple of ingredients or even a jar!
My turn to product of late has been Fern’s Pastes and Pickles, which are available in several online independent retailers. The pastes may usually be intended as bases for curry gravies, but I have found that they make excellent marinades. A particular favourite of the family has been Lamb Chops which have been brushed with Ferns Madras Paste, and marinated during the afternoon, before being grilled on the barbecue and served with a refreshing cucumber & coriander cous cous!”
