BBQ Time

I escaped the British rain for a few days this weekend for a quick trip Malta. Yesterday my family held a BBQ on their terrace with some delicious food cooked by my mum and grilled by my dad.

To start… home made hummus made by mummy:

And olive tapenade with a big garlic kick made by Auntie Maria:

Then my dad got grilling…first some squid then some swordfish:

Both were really fresh so needed very little..the swordfish was marinated in lemon juice and parsley and the squid cooked plain and mixed with some good quality olive oil, salt, pepper and parsley again.

Served with qarabali (marrows) roasted in the oven with onions, insalata tat-tadam: tomato salad made simply with some seasoning, oil and fresh mint and roasted patata (potatoes).
