Drills, fish clips and knives are common barbecue tools, and easy to clean would be the first factor when choosing these tools. Dishes, chopsticks and toothpicks are all necessary, especially toothpicks, which are very useful. They can fix squid and other foods that are easy to curl, and can also replace chopsticks. Prepare several plates to put food, and separate raw and cooked food. Drills, knives and nets should be cleaned before barbecue.

 

Ingredients:

There are many ingredients suitable for barbecue, mainly including meat, fish, seafood, vegetables, fruits and pasta and bean products.

 

Meat food is the leading role of barbecue food, which needs to be pickled with salt, monosodium glutamate, ginger juice and other seasonings in advance, and worn with bamboo sticks. Fish and seafood can choose: live fish, fresh squid, live shrimp, hairy crabs, fresh shellfish skewers, etc., which must be fresh. Fresh squid will curl when baked directly on the fire. You can fix it with bamboo sticks or toothpicks first. If you want to save trouble, you can buy semi-finished products directly in the supermarket.

 

Vegetables and fruits can adjust the taste of barbecue, so that people will not feel too greasy. Potatoes and corn are the most popular foods in this kind of food, and sweet potatoes, yams, taro and green vegetables are also good choices. Some fruits such as apples and bananas can also be tried.

 

Pasta and bean products can be selected as follows: steamed bread slices, bread slices, tofu blocks, yuba and so on, which are not only delicious but also can fill the stomach. Roasted pasta also has the function of nourishing stomach.

 

Seasoning:

The basic seasoning is salt, cumin powder, salt and pepper, black pepper, Chili powder and blended oil. You can also choose different flavors of barbecue sauce according to your personal preference. Blend oil is indispensable in barbecue. Brushing on the ingredients during barbecue can keep the food fresh and tender. Barbecue sauce is available in supermarkets, and can also be replaced by other sauces such as hot sauce. If you are worried that excessive consumption of salt will increase the burden on your kidneys, you can choose to make some carrot sauce and ketchup.
