This was our second BBQ at home (ok my parents’ office) ^^ and it was as usual fantastic. Thanks to my mum who prepared most of the ingredients – different kind of fish, salmon belly, different cut of pork, small corns, mushrooms, onions & garlic, capsicum, lettuce & butterhead wraps, Kimchi and everything else to make it as close to a Korean BBQ as possible – including harvesting our homegrown perilla leaves that’s not big enough as wraps yet, making Ssamjang (recipe from Maangchi), as well as basil leaves. In fact we prepared so much food (probably enough for 10?) and ended up not BBQ-ing the sausages, more meat and eggplant.
Despite the weather being really unpleasant now – warm, humid, stuffy, dusty/ash/whatever particles clogging up the air, the dinner was so enjoyable (especially whenever there’s some breeze) in terms of the grilling and the eating. And because it was outdoors, we didn’t feel/smell like a walking BBQ grill at the end of our dinner.
Not forgetting cups and cups of chilled vinegar drink to finish off the night.
