Veggie burgers

A few simple ingredients make really tasty meat-free burgers. If you want to barbecue them, the best method is to cook the burgers in advance and just heat them up over the coals, as this prevents them from sticking to the grilling rack.
Sushi rolls

Japanese food tends to be low in fat, and these stylish sushi rolls are no exception. Now that the ingredients are available in supermarkets, it is easy to make them yourself. You must use sushi rice, which is sticky when cooked.

Sticky spare ribs

Here pork spare ribs are simmered first to tenderise the meat and to remove some of the fat, before being roasted in a deliciously sticky orange and mustard glaze. Choose the meatiest ribs you can find. When serving them, put out finger bowls and plenty of napkins for cleaning fingers.
Exotic fruit salad
