healthy-barbecue-recipesBarbecues are such a treat but we can’t deny that there are some of us who are conscious about the amount of calories on our food. If you are one, there’s no need to be shy about it. Let us end your search for low-cal barbecue recipes! Here are some mouth-watering suggestions we found on the internet. You should try them!

1. Grilled Chicken With Lemon, Garlic and Oregano

To make the marinade, get a bowl and combine some lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Add extra virgin olive oil gradually while continuously whisking the ingredients. Remove the fat from your chicken breasts and season them with salt and pepper. Sear the chicken legs first for about 6 to 8 minutes total or until they have perfectly browned. Move them to the cooler side of the grill and let them cook for about 15 minutes more. Afterward, transfer them to the bowl with the marinade and coat them. Once coated, put them on a platter and keep them warm by covering them with foil. Then grill the chicken breasts for about 6 to 8 minutes until they’re browned, too. Do the same thing as you did with the chicken legs. Then grill some lemon slices and use them to make your platter appealing.

2. California Turkey Burgers

Warm some olive oil in a skillet, over medium heat. Saute some scallions until they soften. Transfer them to a bowl and then season them with salt and black pepper. Let the scallions cool down. Then add the Worcestershire sauce and sour cream. Add your ground turkey and gently mix the ingredients. Make patties out of the mixture. Grill the burger patties for about 5 minutes. Then, top them with blue cheese and let them cook until the cheese melts. Put the patties in sandwich buns and top with avocado, sliced tomato and onion.

3. Filet Mignon with Blueberry-Bourbon Barbecue Sauce

Make your sauce by heating oil in a saucepan, over medium heat. Add the onions and let them cook until they become tender. Add the garlic as well as the jalapenos. Cook for about 30 seconds. Add the bourbon and then bring the mixture to a boil. Cook until the mixture has reduced. Stir the ketchup, blueberries, molasses, brown sugar and all spice in. Boil the mixture again and then let it simmer until the sauce has thickened. Make sure that you’ll stir occasionally. Then, make your rub by combining oil, salt, pepper and thyme in a bowl. Rub this onto the sides of your steak. Grill for about 3 to 5 minutes. Once cooked, serve with the sauce.

4. Spicy Thai Barbecue Oysters

In a bowl, combine fish sauce, lime juice, cilantro, sugar, chile and garlic. Stir all the ingredients until sugar dissolves. After 30 minutes, taste the mixture to ensure that it’s perfect. Grill your oysters flat-side up for about 3 to 5 minutes. Once done, transfer them to a cutting board and carefully remove the top shell. Make sure that their juice won’t spill. Add a teaspoon of the sauce onto each of the oysters and grill again for another 2 to 4 minutes.

5. Grilled Grouper With Basil-Lime Pesto

To make the pesto, combine basil leaves, Parmesan cheese, grated lime rind, fresh lime juice, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and salt in a food processor. Pulse the ingredients until they’re finely chopped. Set aside for about 10 minutes. Sprinkle salt and pepper onto your grouper fillets then grill them for about 4 minutes per side. Serve with the pesto sauce.

6. Grilled Shrimp Skewers With Mango Salsa

In a saucepan, heat some olive oil then add the garlic. Let it cook until it’s soft then add some lime juice salt and pepper. Let the mixture cool down. Thread your deveined shrimps onto skewers and place them on a tray. Pour the garlic oil all over them, cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge. To prep the mango salsa, combine some jalapenos, mangoes, onions, cilantro and lime juice in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix the ingredients thoroughly and refrigerate. After 6 hours of marinating the shrimp, grill them for about 3 minutes on each side. Serve with the salsa.
