With that bit of extra warmth and light in the evenings, spring is always a popular time to get outside and barbecue. A springtime barbecue is an excellent opportunity to welcome all the regional ingredients fresh from the fields. Asparagus, strawberries, rhubarb and spring greens are waiting to enrich your barbecue buffet. In the spring, lamb is a popular meat specialty, which is a culinary delight from the barbecue. What’s more, certain species of fish only become available in the British waters in springtime; as detailed in this chart, scallops, monkfish, salmon and mackerel all usually make their first appearance at this time of the year. Make the most out of this exciting barbecue season and reimagine your spring grill menu according to what’s in season locally.
