Who doesn't love a braai? Here are some great ideas for a fun (but still healthy) braai.
Fish braai is a favourite summer time meal in our family, snoek is a great fish to braai and definitely a healthy option, high in protein and heart-healthy fats. Just remember to make sure you buy sustainably sourced fish. Go to wwfsassi.co.za/sassi-list/ to check fish sustainability.
SOME FLAVOUR OPTIONS FOR FISH:
Mix one part apricot jam, 2 parts olive oil, add salt and pepper and ground coriander to taste. Brush on fish.
Brush fish with olive oil, squeeze over lemon juice, sprinkle with chilli flakes, salt and pepper to taste.
Brush with olive oil, sprinkle over cajun spice.
SIDE DISH OPTIONS:
Mielies, fresh fruit, and salad.
BEETROOT AND PEACH SALAD
This is so simple to prepare, and its an absolute showstopper with those beautiful colours. The peaches provide the sweetness that sugar would provide in a traditional South African beetroot salad, while adding to the flavour, the fiber and the vitamin content of this salad!
Boil beets in plain water. Peel and thinly slice.
Wash and thinly slice peaches. Layer on a flat serving plate. Drizzle generously with balsamic vinegar.
