There is little that I enjoy doing more than eating outdoors with my family. Whether it’s a picnic, lunch on my patio or a barbeque on the beach, I’m rarely happier. As much as I love to eat outdoors, I also love to cook outdoors. Furthermore I’m not someone who needs the sunshine in order to get the barbeque going, that said it does help!
I created this very simple barbeque dish for my youngest daughter who previously would not eat any barbequed food. She used to be a very fussy eater, thankfully this is no longer the case. However, she would always eat chicken and has never been afraid of spice. Therefore I kept things simple, using a few of her favourite flavours (and mine too).
These chicken kebabs are very quick to prepare which is why I like to make them when cooking outdoors on our family camping trips. I place the marinade and chicken into a ziplock bag ready for cooking wherever we decide to set up the barbeque, whether on the campsite or the nearest beach.
When cooking away from home I find the less fuss the better. For me it’s not about being particularly elabourate, more about just enjoying the fresh air and the company of the people you’re with. It’s even better if your chosen spot is within walking distance, as was the case in the photo below. That way you can pack a bottle of wine, enjoying a glass while you’re cooking!
Besides I am firmly of the opinion that there’s little better on holiday than a barbeque on the beach. Finally, it’s only natural that any barbeque is followed by toasting marshmallows. The cracking sunset was an added bonus.0
