4 Things to Grill That You Haven’t Thought of

With spring comes warmer weather. And with warmer weather comes the freedom of enjoying backyard BBQ’s with friends and family. But while grilling typically involves all sorts of treats that create a glorious scent that wafts throughout the neighbourhood, there are plenty of other foods that you can throw on the grill that you might not have even thought of.

Consider the following foods to sear on the BBQ next time you’re in the mood to grill!


If you’ve never had radicchio, you’re missing out. A purple-tinged, hearty leaf, radicchio is the perfect type of leafy green to throw on the grill, as it is thick enough to be able to withstand the extreme heat of the BBQ. Keep a close eye on it, and turn it after only about a minute or so. After all, it is still a leafy vegetable! Once you take it off the grill, top it with some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and it’s ready to serve!


The majority of cheeses would definitely make a hot melted mess on the grill, so the key is finding the right one to BBQ. Certain cheeses that would make delectable choices to grill include halloumi cheese, which is a dense goat and sheep milk cheese that’s popular in Greece. By grilling this type of cheese, you’ll be left with a deliciously seared and caramelized treat that features an oozing hot cheese in the centre.


While fish fillets aren’t exactly foreign to the grill, shelled fish isn’t necessarily something grillers would necessarily think of. But when you expose oysters to the smoke of a BBQ, they generate a wonderful nutty flavour that’s absolutely to die for. Not only that, but the extreme heat of the BBQ encourages the oysters to open up, making your job that much easier!


Grilled chickpeas are scrumptiously smoky on the outside, while rich in taste and soft on the inside. Add them to a veggie dish to add a little punch that will really please the palette! Just be sure to line the grill with some aluminium foil or a perforated grilling pan so you don’t lose any chickpeas!
