BOOST YOUR BARBECUE WITH PRINCES – SIMPLE, TASTY IDEAS FOR LAST-MINUTE SUMMER MEALS

As the record-breaking sunny summer is set to continue into September, we’re all looking forward to more outdoor dining using the barbecue. Gone are the days of a traditional back garden barbie with over-cooked burgers, sizzled sausages, cheap cheese and ketchup galore. New trends have pathed the way for high nutrition and lean protein foods, straight from the barbecue. 

But what about those hot summer days when you fancy a barbie but haven’t had time to plan?

I’m always trying to find interesting new foods that the family will love for a last minute barbecue that doesn’t compromise on cost and quality. Instead of nipping to the supermarket for typical barbecue essentials, I save time by creating delicious recipes using canned food straight from the cupboard. Perfect for those days of unexpected sunshine when you don’t fancy fighting the crowds at the shops.

Using canned fruit and fish is convenient and fuss-free - and Princes canned Fruit is packed from fresh and has no preservatives1  - great for the whole family. 

 

Why You Should Try Canned Fish on the Barbecue

  • Eating canned fish can boost the amount of all-important protein in our diets3 – which can help to maintain strong bones and muscles4, an easy way to take care of your family’s health
  • Oily fish – such as mackerel and salmon – is also particularly high in long-chain omega 3 fatty acids1, and eating the recommended 250mg a day can help keep your heart working normally2

So, how do you use these simple canned fish recipes to make delicious meals all on the barbecue?
