Otherwise, here are today’s must-try easy summer recipes:
- Steamed mussels
1kg mussels, with shells
Firstly, make sure the mussels are well closed. Then dip them into cold water, clean them up and place on the hob. Add beer, salt and butter and cook for about 4-5 minutes. When you notice they start to open up, you’ll know they are ready. Serve with a nice summer salad and enjoy.
- Beer bread
1tsp brown sugar
Use warm water to dissolve the yeast and sugar.
Sift the flour and create a “well” in the middle. Sip the salt and then, gradually start adding the yeast water. Knead until you form a nice, super soft dough. In order for the beer not to make foam, pour it slowly at a slight angle. Cover with a towel and let the dough rise for about 30 minutes.
After this time, knead anew and leave for another half an hour. When it doubles its size, knead once again. Divide into equal balls and shape them.
Grease a large baking dish and place the small dough balls inside. Put olive oil on top and sprinkle some seeds.
Bake at 180C° for 45 mins.
- Cheesy chicken bites
4x chicken fillet
Salt, black pepper
200g sesame seeds
Cut the fillets crosswise and season with salt and pepper. Inside each fillet’s transection put about 30g of cheese and push.
Whisk the eggs with beer. In another bowl combine the bread-crumbs, flour and sesame.
Dip the bites into the egg mixture, then roll into the flour one and then again in egg. Fry in hot oil until golden.
- Chicken and pineapple pancakes
Milk, beer, salt and flour (measured by eye)
2x red pepper
2 slices of pineapple
400g chicken bon-fillet
Make a pancake mixture out of eggs, milk, beer, flour and salt. Grease a cooking pan and fry on both sides.
For the filling, slice the chicken and fry. Add peppers and then cubed pineapple with soy sauce.
To finish the meal, put some mayo on top of every pancake. Place cubed tomatoes and cucumbers, then some of the cooked filling. Roll the pancakes and serve.
