by Madeline Weston Editor
There is nothing more relaxing or enjoyable than lounging outside with friends while a mouth-watering aroma wafts slowly upwards, drifting lazily away from a delicious meal cooking on the barbecue. Everyone loves cooking over coals, but often the liberal use of oily marinades and fatty meats result in meals that are high in fat. Fat-free Barbecues offers a solution to this dilemma by presenting a sensational collection of flame-grilled dishes that maintain taste while staying naturally low in fat content.
Many low-fat versions of classic barbecue dishes are featured; for example, the kebab is represented by Turkey Skewers, Bacon Koftas, and Citrus Kebabs. An exciting range of flavorful grilled fish dishes includes Grilled Sea Bass with Fennel, Swordfish Kebabs, and spicy Cajun Cod. Vegetarians are definitely not forgotten in this thorough volume; vegetarian dishes such as Tofu Steaks, Vegetable Skewers, and Vegetable Skewers with Mustard Dip and Herb Polenta are sure to please everyone at the barbecue. Fiery Citrus Salsa and Tomato Relish are just two of the tantalizing collection of relishes and dips that will spice up grilled dishes. Finally, multiple recipes for scrumptious salads and delicious desserts complete the occasion.
This book also includes useful information about choosing, preparing, and lighting a barbecue, as well as safety tips and cooking times. With expert advice on fat-free cooking and healthy eating, Fat-free Barbecues is an indispensable cookbook; absolutely essential reading for all barbecue lovers.
