Whenever we get an opportunity, we do BBQ at home. Last year, we have been doing lot of BBQ of game birds / meat. Now it is birds and fish bought from market. But we prefer to do it at home instead of going to a restaurant. Here are few pics of our recent BBQs done by me, my father and my brother Haider. I do the preparation and marination of meat (the recipes are of my father but now he tells me to do the preparation :) )

I will share some of the recipes and pics in this thread :D

BBQ Rainbow Trout:

Ingrediants:
:arrow: Rainbow Trout fillets... if you buy it from market the fillets are already cut. If you catch this while fishing, you will have to make these. A sharp fillet knife will be needed.
:arrow: Spices: Salt, freshly ground garlic paste, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilies.
:arrow: Lemon juice
:arrow: One spoon olive oil.

Marinate trout fillets in spices and Lemon juice for about 2 hour.

Image

While BBQ a trout one has to be careful because fish (specially fillets) are very tender. They will break if not handled with care. We use a closed grill set up for BBQ fish. It is easy to turn over the fish that way, without breaking the pieces as the fillets are firmly held by the grill and do not move. Timely turning over is very important otherwise the meat will burn.

Please make sure that the heat is very low. Charcoal should look more like ash. No burning hot charcoal.

BBQ for around 10 minutes. Keep turning over the grill after every minute. Mid way, apply some oil which will not let the meat burn and will also make it more tender.

BBQ Rainbow trout is ready

BBQ Basa:

This is the first time we tried this fish. Basa (Pangasius bocourti) is basically a vegetarian catfish found in Mekong River and other parts of SE Asia. It's a tasty fish and is sold all over the world in the form of fillets. We purchased basa fillets from the market but my father has been catching this fish from lakes and rivers in Malaysia and Vietnam.

Ingrediants:
:arrow: Basa fillets...
:arrow: Spices: Salt, freshly ground garlic paste, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilies.
:arrow: Fresh lemon juice
:arrow: One spoon olive oil.

We applied the same marination for basa as we did for Rainbow Trout, for two hours.

BBQ Basa is ready

I must acknowledge here that BBQ Basa tasted better than Rainbow Trout. 8-)

Baked cum Grilled Chicken with Vegetable:

We have been doing this quite often in the past. It is really very tender and tastes very good. Vegetables are baked in the same spices and taste very good.

Ingrediants:
:arrow: Chicken pieces with skin. You can also do the whole chicken. Please DO NOT remove the skin as it is the tastiest part...
:arrow: Carrots, potatoes, onions, green chillies, reddish and other vegs, as per liking. Cut them into slices.
:arrow: Spices: Salt, freshly ground garlic paste, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilies.
:arrow: Vinegar
:arrow: One spoon olive oil.

Marinate for two hours.

Image
Place sliced vegs under the marinated chicken pieces. Used oven dish with holes in it. This is allow the excess water to drain down. We used tin foil BBQ trays with holes. After baking, vegetables will be also taste the same and there will be some gravy also. Bake for 40 mins in the oven at 300* and after that, grill the chicken only for 10 minutes. It will have a better taste. (I keep trying new things in cooking every now and than :D )

Baked Chicken with vegetables is ready :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:

Basa was made at low heat for a long time.
It was fully brown, no black areas, Perfectly made.
If we had made trout that way. It could have been better than Bassa.

Hamid bhai, it is actually the pleasure of cooking own food, experimenting with recipes which makes all the difference. Eating good food is a bonus.

But there is one serious disadvantage. One doesn't like anything in other people's house and even in restaurants. The other day we were invited to one of the best restaurants in the city which is famous for its BBQ. While all were praising the quality of BBQ, we were amazed how useless it was and how exorbitantly he was charging for that rubbish. :(

Sualeh, Haider and Zain are really getting professional with their home BBQs now. And I am so happy to know this :mrgreen:

@ KBW
Restaurants have to season and cook everything to please everones taste.
So Yes, If your taste is not the same as Everyone else, then the meal will be only mildly pleasing.
even though it is very satisfying to everyone else.
But have you noticed, a families taste will be very much like everone else in the family.
It is a good thing that your sons enjoy cooking.
It is a good way to express themselves.

Perch is a very tasty fish and when BBQ, it tastes real good. In above pics, few large pieces are of Basa.

@ Haider95.
Well battered Perch sounds good to me.
I love food that is Greasy and sticks to your ribs, as well as your waistline.
You just come over here next time you want to make it that way.

I didn't like battered perch too much. It was sort of oily. Baked and BBQ is much better.

@ Haider95
What did you use to batter the fish in ?
I like to just dip the fish in beaten eggs with a little milk, and then roll them in seasoned Flour.
Olive or Peanut oil gives a better taste, and it is easier to control the heat when frying.

Haider
If I were you I would marinate the fish as usual and than add some salt, cumin seeds and chillies to crums also. In my view that will make it more tasty. :drool: :drool:

I have heard that adding a little vinigar to the oil when you fry the fish, helps keep the fish from soaking up as much of the oil.
I have never tried it, because I don't mind unhealthy food.
