To celebrate National BBQ Week, we’ve picked out some campsite-friendly recipes for you to try out, some of which have been contributed by our members. Take a look at the Club Together discussion to see all of our members’ suggestions.

  • Diced chicken breast
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 5 tbsp golden syrup

Mix together soy sauce and golden syrup in a bowl. Marinade the chicken breast in the sticky mixture overnight. When you’re ready to cook, skewer the chicken and cook on the barbecue, turning until cooked through and golden brown.

  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • Black pepper

  • 20 fresh jumbo prawns

Thread two or three jumbo prawns on skewers and put them on the BBQ. While they are cooking (they will only take a few minutes) mix the garlic and black pepper in the butter in a ramekin or small pan, then place over the heat to melt the butter and give you a very garlicky hot dip. When the prawns are done, peel them, dip them and enjoy!
