You may be short on time or energy but fear not as BBQ has put together a list of quick and easy BBQ recipe ideas that will make your 2023 grilling a breeze. Whether you're looking to impress your guests with a mouth-watering grilled chicken dish or keep it simple with a steak, we've got you covered. So, light up the grill and get ready to impress your taste buds with these hassle-free BBQ recipes.

When it comes to easy BBQ recipe ideas, there are a few key factors to consider. An easy BBQ recipe should have minimal prep time, using simple ingredients that are easy to find and commonly used in everyday cooking. It should also have a short cooking time and clear, non-complicated instructions. Furthermore, the recipe should be versatile enough to allow substitutions or variations, and can be made with common grilling equipment. All these factors work together to create easy BBQ recipe ideas that are simple to prepare and execute, allowing you to enjoy delicious BBQ dishes with minimal effort.

Here are 7 Easy BBQ Recipe Ideas 

Grilled Sriracha Salmon

One easy BBQ recipe idea that is sure to impress is Grilled Sriracha Salmon. This recipe is simple to prepare and is packed with flavor. This recipe is a perfect example of minimal prep time, using simple ingredients, and having a short cooking time.. Furthermore, Sriracha sauce and soy sauce are commonly found in most households, making the recipe very accessible. This recipe is great for any occasion, from a casual dinner party to a weeknight dinner.

Chicken Seekh Kebabs

These juicy chicken kebabs can also be made with minced turkey. If purchasing your meat from a butcher, ask them to finely mince chicken thighs as they have the most flavour. Chicken seekh kebabs can be a bit dry, which is why I add rendered beef or lamb fat to mine. You can make your own or just purchase beef or lamb dripping. The dripping not only makes the kebabs juicy but also helps to keep the chicken on the skewers. These kebabs make a delicious and easy BBQ dinner..

Miso-charred aubergines

An easy BBQ recipe that is perfect for vegetarians is Miso-charred Aubergines. This recipe is easy to prepare and packed with savoury and umami flavours. This recipe is a perfect example of minimal prep time, using simple ingredients and having a short cooking time. The marinade can be prepared in minutes, and the aubergine only needs a few minutes per side to cook. The recipe also allows for easy adaptation, as you can use courgettes or any other vegetables that suit your taste or have on hand. This recipe is perfect for a meatless meal or as a side dish, with a delicious and unique flavour that is sure to be a hit with any crowd.

Smash burgers

Smash burgers are a great easy BBQ recipe idea for any grill enthusiast. They are simple to prepare, made with minimal ingredients, and have a quick cooking time. To make a smash burger, all you need is ground beef, salt, pepper, and a good quality bun. First, season your ground beef with salt and pepper, and then form them into small, thin patties. Next, place the patties on a hot grill and press them down with a spatula, creating a "smashed" appearance. This technique helps to create a crust on the outside while keeping the inside juicy and flavorful. The cooking time is short, usually around 2-3 minutes per side, which makes this recipe perfect for a quick and easy meal.

Pizza Chicken Drumsticks

Butterflied chicken drumsticks have become a bit of a thing on BBC social media over the last couple of years. I felt that the butterflied flattened chicken drumstick was a perfect mini “pizza” base with a built-in handle. Why not give this easy BBQ recipe idea a try and elevate your grilling game with minimal effort and maximum flavor

Prawns with chilli garlic butter and pineapple salsa

Any ingredients found at a 1970s’ dinner party are perfect for us, and prawns and pineapple make a great combination. We always use prawn with shell on (and usually heads) as this protects them from being overcooked. For this cook we used skewers but grilling over direct heat would have the same effect. This recipe take a matter of minutes at the grill so it is a perfect quick and easy bbq recipe that will be sure to impress.
