Hot Plate is a barbecue book with spice - it contains barbecue recipes from the chefs at Spirit House, one of Australia's premier restaurant and cooking schools. Turn a casual backyard gathering into a gourmet event with these recipes and tips to roast, smoke, and sear your way to BBQ perfection. The book includes fantastic salads, exotic dressing and relishes, dipping sauces and serving suggestions. Combine Black Pepper Prawns with Char-grilled Pineapple to create an easy starter. Or Char-grilled Asparagus and Garlic and Coriander for a sensational side dish. Smoked Chicken, Spiced Lamb Cutlets, Lamb Shanks and Seafood get the Hot Plate treatment. Served with a wasabi mayo, chilli jam or ginger sauce, the meal comes alive. Each dish is easy to understand, and includes photographs.
