SIZZLING SUMMER: HEALTHY BBQ RECIPE Summer barbeques are a must over the holiday season. Fire up the Barbie with this healthy mouth-watering recipe which is sure to get the summer sizzling:
Grilled Salmon Skewers with Mango Coconut Salad Ingredients (serves 4) 600g skinless salmon fillets, cut into 3cm cubes 2 tablespoons lime juice 1 tablespoon peanut oil 2 garlic cloves, crushed 2 stalks lemongrass, trimmed, finely chopped olive oil cooking spray salad leaves, to serve Mango Coconut Salad 1 medium (1kg) fresh coconut 1 large (450g) mango, diced 1 long red chilli, deseeded, thinly sliced 1/3 cup firmly packed fresh mint leaves, torn 2 tablespoons lime juice 2 teaspoons brown sugar Directions: Combine salmon, lime juice, oil, garlic and lemongrass in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Summer is here, it’s heating up and I’m sure you’re all thinking about hitting the beach! Here’s a great exercise to tone the abs, obliques and pecs and get that bikini tummy you’re after: 1. Sit on your knees in front of a Swiss ball and place your forearms and fists on the ball. 2. Slowly roll the ball forward, straightening your arms and extending your body as far as you can without allowing your lower back to “collapse.” Use your abdominal muscles to pull the ball back to your knees.

Spray a barbecue plate with oil sparingly. Heat over high heat. Thread salmon onto skewers. Cook skewers for 1 to 2 minutes on both sides. Serve with mango coconut salad.
