BBQ season is already upon us! To make the most of it, we suggest grilling all your courses—from your appetizers to your main dish to dessert! Discover easy and delicious tips and recipes to reinvent your menu this summer.

All flavour, no hassle!

If you’re already feeling the call of the BBQ, you’re not alone! And for good reason: this cooking method has many advantages:

  • Easily prepare a meal for a large group, without over-heating the house.
  • Get some fresh air and enjoy the warm weather while cooking.
  • Prepare meats that are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
  • Enhance your grilled dishes with a delicate smoky aroma.
  • Limit the use of fat (eating a more balanced diet is always a good thing!).
  • Cook a meal without dirtying a bunch of dishes, like in this recipe for BBQ pork tournedos with seasonal vegetables.

A menu from A to . . . yum!

The BBQ also has the advantage of being super versatile! No need to settle for traditional hot dogs and burgers. Here are some original ideas for making a complete meal on the grill.

Seared starters

Skewer mode: Impress your guests with succulent colourful mini-skewers. They’re so easy to make: simply skewer whatever ingredients you have on hand! This appetizer for Fresh Herb Whitefish Skewers with Seasonal Vegetables will have the whole table asking for more.

And don’t forget the veggies! Peppers, onions, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, eggplant, and zucchini are all firm enough to withstand the grill. We also suggest grilling up some skewers of halloumi cheese—a real treat on the BBQ!

Salad mode: Why not try grilling lettuce on the BBQ? This unique way of preparing a salad won’t leave anyone indifferent, not even the most hesitant. For a one-of-a-kind Caesar salad, cut a heart of Romaine in half lengthwise and brush each half with olive oil, before browning them directly on the grill for two minutes over medium heat. Then simply garnish with vinaigrette, bacon bits, and Parmesan cheese.

Otherwise, grilled vegetables on the BBQ are just as fabulous in a salad. Add fresh herbs and cheese for a flavour-packed starter!

Pizza mode: Whether prepared with homemade or store-bought dough, on flatbread or naan, pizza is the ultimate summer dish! And it’s even better on the grill! We suggest making this double-cheese margherita pizza at your next backyard BBQ. A delight that is sure to impress all your guests!

Hearty mains

On the grill: Virtually all cuts of meat and fish can be prepared on the BBQ. Pork lovers won’t be able to resist these [apple and bacon pork skewers]. In the mood for something a little more gourmet? Treat yourself to these maple BBQ pork ribs that are tender with a delicious caramelized flavour.

And let’s not forget about steak, the indisputable king of the grill! We suggest making this rib steak drizzled with a creamy lemon-dill butter. White meat lovers are sure to enjoy this recipe for chicken with lemon and herbs sauce. And finally, serve your grilled dishes with steakhouse corn for a succulent menu the whole table will love!

En papillote: This method is ideal for cooking smaller pieces. Bonus: It promotes the preservation of vitamins and minerals. To accompany your grilled dishes this summer, our recipe for baby potatoes and bacon en papillote is a real crowd-pleaser!

The papillote method is also suitable for seafood and flaky fish. You’ll love this recipe for steelhead trout and pesto en papillote, which boasts a delicate lemon flavour.

In a cast-iron pan: Did you know that it works wonders on the BBQ? Prepare a giant frittata, where leftover cold cuts and meat are transformed into a sublime summer meal. An “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” recipe the way we like them!
