Pat Chapman Grills the world
By Anubhav Sapra
Recently, I was invited by Barbeque Nation for their food fest – Pat Chapman Grills the world ( Oct 3rd to Oct 14th ).
Chef Pat Chapman is a celebrity chef, writer, and a man who brought Indian food to the UK. Inspired by barbeque cultures worldwide, Pat Chapman has created 14 fabulous marinades exclusively for Barbeque Nation. Here, I am listing down some of the exclusive recipes created by Pat Chapman for the event.
Yorkshire Lamb Patties
Vegetable oil, Horserdish sauce, salt, chopped onions fried a level below golden brown, coarsely chopped parsley and lamb mince.
In a round mixing bowl, mix horseradish sauce and vegetable oil. Whisk well. Add fried onions and coarsely chopped parsley. Check seasoning. Season lamb minces with salt and pepper. Make round patties of 50 gms each and cook on pan grill. Serve hot with cool mayonnaise dip and crisp salad.
Hot Mail Thai Fish ( my favourite )
Basa fish boneless, lemongrass paste, basil leaves, green chilli paste, fish sauce, refined sunflower oil and fresh coriander
In a round-bottomed bowl, mix fish sauce (which according to Pat Chapman smells like socks), lemongrass paste, chopped basil leaves, green chilli paste and vegetable oil. Whisk lightly and add fish pieces. Let it marinate for 30 minutes. Pierce pieces with a skewer and grill over a medium charcoal fire. Serve hot sprinkled with chopped fresh coriander.
Jamaican Jerk Chicken
Chicken drumstick, vegetable oil, muscavado sugar(brown sugar), cider vinegar, rum, pepper powder, nutmeg powder, cinnamon powder, salt, chopped onion fried brown, naga or scotch bonnet chilli, fresh thyme, garlic fried.
Make diagonal cut marks on chicken pieces. In a round-bottomed bowl, add all the ingredients except chicken. Whisk lightly. Add chicken pieces and marinate for 30 minutes. Grill over a medium charcoal fire. Serve hot, sprinkled with crushed black pepper.
The grills were truly delectable, especially the Fish which was simply marvellous. I had my fill and tried other grills as well- Aztec Poblano Paneer, Spanish Valencia Prawns, Arabian Exotic Veggies, Chinese Sichuan chicken, Albuquerque Atomic Chicken. All of them had nice seasonings and textures. The drinks on the mocktail menu are interesting to try as well
I must say, it’s a good way to start the non-vegetarian journey after Navratras.
