Heritage Day is coming up, which means South Africans from all walks of life are getting their braais ready. We went looking for some recipes with a twist, and found flavours of Asia, Spain and biltong – of course!
Nice spicy rice
Jan Braai, the man behind Braai Day, isn’t only about chops and wors (nothing wrong with them, though). His recipe for chicken, seafood and chorizo paella is fragrant, spicy and totally delicious
If you think that Thailand and braais don’t go together, think again. This dish of chicken thighs with lime and ginger by Food and Home has all our favourite Thai ingredients, along with a hot kick of ginger and chili. Just add more to turn up the heat.
Rock it old school
Steak is a braai stalwart for a reason – juicy, delicious, tasty. Mmm… This recipe from Woolworths adds an extra punch with herby butter and spring onions. And check out their video – they actually cook the steak right on the coals.
Super local, super lekker
Good old braai broodjies get a scrumdidlyumptious sprinkling of biltong in this cheesy, jammy recipe from Food24.
