Grilled Food Around The World: 6 Exciting Recipes To Try

words Al Woods

Grilling is one of the healthiest ways that you can prepare food. You get a crispy finish, without having to slather food in oil and fry it. The only problem with grilling is that in order to prepare food in that way is to purchase a grill. Fortunately, grills do not cost a lot of money and are a great investment. It’s possible to purchase indoor grills, although for most people outdoor ones are the best idea.

If grilled food interests you, then here are six exciting recipes for you to try:

Purchasing a Grill

Before moving onto this post’s main topic, it is important to first cover purchasing a grill. There are many different types of grill, available at a variety of different price levels. According to the grill critics from, kamado grills are a very popular choice. Kamado grills are egg-shaped and originate in Japan. More and more home chefs are investing in them because they are easy to use and offer people the ability to roast, grill, and smoke food. Before purchasing a grill, make sure that you read its reviews, as well as the manufacturer’s reviews.

1.    Bratwurst

Bratwurst is a very popular German sausage, typically made with pork and veal. Bratwurst is most popular with members of the German diaspora, although it’s still enjoyed by lots of people who aren’t of German descent. The most popular method of preparing Bratwurst is combining it with a curry and tomato sauce, which is called currywurst. If you do not live in an area with any German delicatessens or butchers, then you probably won’t be able to get this sausage fresh, though you may be able to order it vacuum sealed and already cooked from an online supermarket.

2.     Hilsa

Hilsa is a fish that’s found abundantly in the Bay of Bengal. It is a staple food in many Bangladeshi households, in Bangladesh and outside of it. If you live in an area that has a population of Bengali people, then you should be able to find it. Hilsa is usually frozen and then distributed all over the world. Traditionally hilsa is grilled and then combined with a sauce that contains ginger, fennel seeds, ginger, and chilli powder. If you want to prepare grilled hilsa, then you should also add Naga to it. Naga is Bangladesh’s most popular chilli (and one of the world’s most powerful).

3.    Cumberland Sausages

Cumberland sausages are a regional delicacy in England, and one of the nation’s most popular sausages. If you have access to a grill, then it’s definitely worth giving Cumberland’s a go. The sausage is served with mashed potato and peas traditionally, but if you are cooking it on a grill then it will go just as well with a toasted bun and some fried onions. When the English have barbecues, they tend to slather their sausage rolls in mustard and ketchup. Dijon mustard is a great choice for your barbecue.

4.    Thai King Prawns

If you have ever been to a Thai restaurant before, then you will know that they prepare perhaps the world’s best king prawns. Thai king prawns are typically smothered in a delicious fish sauce and then grilled inside a banana leaf. The banana leaf really adds to the flavour of the prawns, but if you do not have access to a banana leaf, then you can grill the prawns as if they were a normal piece of meat or fish, and then add the sauce after. You can also brush the prawns with the sauce at the beginning of cooking. Marinating them in the sauce is also an option.

5.    Miso Burgers

Japanese food is extremely popular right now. If you are a fan of Japanese food, then you will likely already have encountered miso, which is fermented soybean paste. Miso burgers are absolutely delicious. If you are going to prepare them, then for authenticity it’s good to use wagyu beef, which is Japan’s highest-quality beef. You can marinate the beef in miso paste, then grill them. Miso is an acquired taste, so if you have not tried it before, it’s best to familiarise yourself with it before you commit to eating a lot of it on your burger.

6.    Szechuan Chicken

Szechuan chicken is traditionally roasted, which you can do on most modern grills. Alternatively, you can marinate your chicken with Szechuan rub and then grill it. Szechuan chicken can be quite spicy, so if you aren’t very good at handling spice, it’s a good idea to select something else from this list. Szechuan cuisine is China’s spiciest.

If you want to try out grilled food, then why not explore what other countries and nations have to offer? There’s a lot more to grilled food than just barbecue ribs and burgers, as this post shows.
