As creators and purveyors of high-end barbecue ovens, the team here at Aemyrie like to keep our fingers on the pulse of the latest barbecue trends. This summer, Korean BBQ looks set to be the hottest new trend amongst foodies. Traditionally, it entails cooking meat (usually beef, pork, or chicken) in Korean style on a grill that is built into the same table where food is served. Although not everyone is able to acquire such a grill, Korean flavours can be replicated on any wood-fired oven or grill, so why not throw your own themed barbecue at home? The following fantastic recipes are an ideal place to start…
Are you tired of eating the same old grilled seafood? This recipe is sure to spice up your opinion of classic barbecued shrimp! The inclusion of red chilli paste completely transforms the dish –both visually and flavour-wise – into something absolutely breathtaking that is sure to prove popular among your dinner guests. These skewers have a very distinct taste that you wouldn’t normally find at a more traditional barbecue. Serve with salad or grilled vegetables to complement the sensational array of flavours.
Not everyone is a fan of spicy food, and these pork skewers make the perfect mild (but still amazingly flavoursome) alternative when you have guests who are not keen on heat, but like their pork nice and crispy.
Do you want to offer up something unique that your guests will not have seen before at a barbecue? Grilled squid is the perfect option! This recipe has such simple preparation steps that all you will need to focus on is cooking it to perfection, which will be easy with the help of an Aemyrie grill.
Bulgogi is probably the most well known Korean BBQ dish amongst Westerners – and not only is it almost universally loved, but it is also pretty simple to make! A Bulgogi marinade traditionally utilises the juices of an Asian pear, but depending on your tastes, you can substitute this for red apple, or even kiwi as a twist on the traditional recipe (just be sure to alter the marinading time accordingly, as kiwi is a much stronger tenderiser than Asian pear!). Experiment to find your preferred flavour!
