Our favourite grilled food recipes

The 10th of January is the day that most of us apparently give up our healthy New Year’s Resolutions. If you’re bucking the trend and still going strong, then it may be of interest to you that grilling food is a great way to reduce your fat intake. In light of this, we’ve pulled together some healthy recipes for inspiration on how to bet utilise your Intelligrill.


Salmon fillets & Asparagus

 
 
Ingredients:
Salmon fillets
Low fat oil
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Asparagus
Lemon wedges

Preparation:


1. Turn on the Intelligrill and set to a high temperature; 218c is a good benchmark. Make sure to place the temperature probe in the salmon fillet to allow for constant monitoring.

2. Meanwhile, prepare salmon fillet. Rinse and pat dry and remove any bones (you can pull these out with tweezers if you’re really struggling). Very lightly brush the skin with low-fat oil, and then sprinkle the flesh side of the fillet with salt and pepper.

3. Place the salmon fillet inside the Intelligrill with the skin-side-down and then cover. 

4. Cut the tips off the asparagus and place and boil for 5 minutes.

5. Cook the fillet until the salmon starts to release its fat and/or the flesh begins to flake easily. This normally occurs after 10 to 12 minutes for most 1-inch-thick fillets. Allow another 10 minutes for each extra inch of thickness. 

6. Use a spatula to carefully remove the salmon fillet from the Intelligrill and serve with asparagus and drizzling of lemon juice.

Lemon chicken & cous cous

 
 
Ingredients:
4 chicken breasts
80g couscous
100ml hot vegetable stock
Low fat olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp toasted pine nuts
Chopped parsley 
Green beans 
Lemon wedges


Preparation:

1. Bash the chicken breasts flat between sheets of cling film. Lightly brush the chicken with oil and place in the Intelligrill for 4 minutes on each side, until cooked through.


2. In a bowl, mix the couscous with the vegetable stock. Ensure that you cover and leave for 5 minutes. Stir in the olive oil and microwave on high for 3 minutes.


3. Stir in the lemon juice and toasted pine nuts, some chopped parsley and season.


4. Serve with green beans and the chicken, sliced into 3. Squeeze the lemon wedges over to finish.


Chicken and prawn skewers on Greek salad 
 
 

Ingredients:
1 large skinless chicken breast, cut into pieces
8 large, raw peeled prawns
3 tbsp low-fat olive oil
1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
300g fresh (or frozen and thawed) broad beans
Handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped
100g feta, crumbled

Preparation:


1. Place the chopped up chicken fillets in a bowl and toss with the prawns, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the zest and juice of 1/2 lemon and the dried oregano. Season and set aside for roughly 10 minutes.


2. Meanwhile, cook the broad beans in lightly salted water for 4 minutes. Once done, then drain and place in cold water, drain again and slip out of their skins. Put these into a bowl and toss with the mint, feta and a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Season with freshly ground black pepper and set aside.


3. Place in the Intelligrill and cook on for 3 minutes on each side, until relatively charred and cooked through. Thread the chicken and prawns onto 4 skewers, and then divide between plates, along with the bean salad. Cut the lemon into wedges, and sprinkle the juice over all the skewers.
