Barbeque Recipes and To do list

Here are some simple ideas and recipes based on the menu

(remember this barbeque is for 20 people)
1) Fish
After cleaning and scaling the fish, freeze it till the barbeque day. On that day, defrost it, and then season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. If using foil, just leave lemon in the fish, to make sure it stays moist. You'll taste the freshness of fish with a bit of lemony taste.

2) Chicken wings
Marinade the chicken wings the day before. A simple marinade is

4 whole garlic, crushed
2 medium size onions
12 tbsp soy sauce
8 tbsp honey
4 tbs tomato sauce
8 tsp grated ginger
1/2 cup oil
black pepper
Some commercial barbeque sauce (i use LIFE)

3) For beef and pork
Marinade the meat a day before

Handful of Garlic
Handful of Onion
3 squirts of mustard
2 cups ketchup
8 tbs brown sugar
8tbs worchester sauce
4 tbs vinegar
Lemon/ Lime juice
Mint, thyme, mixed herbs

4) Easy potato salad

1kg potatoes(peeled, cut to bite size pieces)
300g bacon
salt and pepper to taste
basil, mint or any herbs

1) Cook potatoes in salted water till almost soft. (careful we dont want mash potatoes).Drain, set aside.
2) Fry up bacon with a bit of oil. When it looks crisp, dish out. Crumble it. (Use knife and chop if you want)
3) Combine all.
4) Serve hot. WONDERFUL!! And Voila!! Simple, right?

Use a piece of foil and put a banana with skin in it. Slit the banana, and place a piece of
chocolate in the middle. Seal the packet and barbeque it for 5-10 mins. Serve with ice cream.

To-do list
Before the actual day: Buy all the meats, marinade ingredients, bread, drinks, fruits, other ingredients. Prepare the salad dressing for the vegetable salad, marinade the meats. Extra garlic can be mixed with melted butter for the garlic bread.

Actual day: Get your friends together and have some talk time while preparing the food. Ask the girls to prepare the garlic bread, chop up vegetables for the salad, set up drink counter, dessert counter including cut the watermelon while you make the potato salad and wash the corn. An hour before the crowd comes in, ask the guys to set up the barbeque and start off with some of the meat.
