This is one of the very first barbecue dinner party dishes I ever cooked. The green Thai flavours build up layer of fragrant flavour. Most people seem to have got the hang of fast cooking on the BBQ but it's great for slow-cooked melting dishes too. When it comes to cooking big pieces of meat like a shoulder of lamb or a whole chicken or a big brisket of beef on the BBQ, unless you have a cool BBQ which you can control and keep an eye on it's often safest to start off the cooking in the oven and finish it on the BBQ to get that lovely charred crust.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
