Essentials for an epic holiday grill
End the September school holidays with a bang
Three quarters of the school year is over, and for some, that calls for a celebration.
End the one-week September school break with a bang by hosting a sizzling barbecue session for friends and family over the weekend with FairPrice Housebrand must-haves.
A convenient and delicious all-time favourite for everyone is the FairPrice Satay On Sticks With Gravy (300g + 200g).
Available in chicken and beef, the local product is prepared with a traditional recipe of fresh ingredients, herbs and spices, making it unique in taste.
It is vacuum-packed and contains no monosodium glutamate or preservatives.
Meat lovers can also throw in the Chef Delights Frozen Chicken Wings - Grade A (2kg) from Brazil, specially selected chicken wings that are hygienically packed for convenience.
Mix it up with the halal-certified Chef Delights Frozen Chicken Franks (340g) from Brazil or the locally produced FairPrice Oriental Sausage - Chicken (250g), both of which are suitable for grilling, pan-frying and oven-toasting. The sausage is also available in pork as well as pork garlic and chilli.
Complete your barbecue spread with a splash of seafood.
The FairPrice Crabsticks (250g) are not only low in cholesterol but also contain no preservatives and saturated fats.
For a nice springy bite, get the succulent and tender FairPrice Frozen Cuttlefish Ball (500g), which has no preservatives or colouring and is free of trans fat.
The FairPrice Spread - Margarine (250g) is perfect for using over the ingredients before laying them on the grill. The halal-certified, trans fat-free product of Australia not only prevents food from sticking to the grill, it also enhances the flavours.
An alternative is to marinate the ingredients with the FairPrice 100% Pure Honey (500g). Harvested from apiaries in the countryside of Hungary, it is rich in character and flavour with no additives, flavourings or colouring.
Complement your cooked food with the Golden Chef Dressing - Roasted Sesame (400g) from Japan, which boasts a nutty and creamy texture, with a tinge of sweet and sour aftertaste.
Do not forget about the sides.
Curb your hunger with some halal-certified snacks while you wait for the main dishes to be ready.
For a hit of heat, opt for the FairPrice Crackers - Prawn (Hot & Spicy) (70g), which are crispy, tasty and trans fat-free, or the locally made FairPrice Snacks - Tapioca (Hot & Spicy) (8 x 35g).
But of course, you cannot go wrong with trans fat-free FairPrice Potato Crisps (160g), available in Original, Smoky BBQ, Sour Cream and Onion flavours.
Lastly, quench your thirst and cool yourself down with FairPrice 100% Coconut Water (1 litre).
Naturally fat-free and cholesterol-free, the Thai product contains five essential electrolytes and has no added sugar.
It is best served chilled, but make sure you shake the bottle well before consumption.
