At the beach barbecue in the TUI BLUE Palm Garden, everyone is guaranteed to go into raptures: Fresh vegetables, fish and meat from the grill, a good glass of wine and selected local turkish specialities to enjoy at sunset. Yes, my mouth waters every time I think about this delicious and wonderful experience, but see for yourself…!
In this blog article, I will introduce you to the beach barbecue at the TUI BLUE Palm Garden and show you what is involved in a nice barbecue on the beach. Of course, you will also get two of my favourite barbecue recipes with video instructions on top!
Beach barbecue with a beautiful ambience
Barbecue aromas and smoky scents are in the air and are already creating anticipation for the upcoming beach barbecue at the TUI BLUE Palm Garden on the Turkish Riviera.
Shortly before 7pm, the time has come – waiters and waitresses welcome the first guests to the open-air barbecue on the beach. The tables are set up all around under a covered roundabout and are already laid out with sparkling cutlery and fine wine glasses. The waiters and waitresses escort the guests to their reserved tables and serve bread baskets with spicy dips as a small starter. Mmmmh delicious…! This is accompanied by red, white or rosé wine on request. If you like, you can of course also order non-alcoholic drinks.
A small path leads from the round table to the barbecue area, where the grill masters turn various pieces of meat, vegetable skewers, grilled cheese and other delicacies back and forth on a charcoal grill. Right next to it is a smoker: a large, closed grill with which pieces of meat are cooked or smoked in hot smoke. Additional side dishes such as vegetables, salads, potato wedges and rice are arranged on a table and served appetisingly.
On your marks, get set, and get to the buffet!
Delicious variety at the beach barbecue
Slowly but surely, the first guest dares to approach the buffet and get plates of choice food, fresh from the grill. The range of different meats, fish, and vegetable kebabs, all the way to grilled cheese. The meat is perfectly cooked, tender and juicy on the inside. The well-seasoned food is complemented by crisp, fresh garnishes that whet the appetite for a second helping. The grill masters place new skewers on the grill. While some guests nibble at a ribs or try a piece of grilled cheese, others are already on the way to the dessert buffet. Here, there are chocolate-dipped strawberries, colorful macarons, chocolates, fruit, dessert mousse, creams, and biscuits of all different varieties waiting: A land of milk and honey for the sweet tooth!
Beach barbecue – Enjoy an unforgettable evening
During the meal, what stands out most is the pleasant atmosphere: On this balmy summer evening, couples and families, friends and colleagues sit together at the tables lit with lanterns and chat in a relaxed atmosphere. The mood is exuberant, but not overexcited: people are laughing, talking and eating delicious food. The fact that time is flying by now is only evident from the setting sun, which bathed everything in its golden light at the beginning of the evening and is now slowly fading into darkness. But it is still pleasantly warm outside, so that after the beach barbecue there is still time for a walk on the beach, which lies directly in front of the roundabout. A wonderful beach barbecue evening comes to an end, and one thing is certain: none of the guests will forget this evening in a hurry!
Traditional barbecue recipes for the home
While you were reading this, did you get the urge for a delicious barbecue evening? I have two traditional barbecue recipes for you that will make your barbecue a very special treat. The recipes are perfect for a cosy evening with your loved ones!
Pulled Pork Burger
1-2 spoonfuls of each ingredient:
– Smoked paprika
– Gingerbread spice
– Garlic oil
– Coriander seeds
– Bay leaves

– Meat: shoulder or shank
Marinate everything and place in the oven at 180°C for about 3 hours. Remove from the bones and mince. Season with lemon zest, rosemary, thyme and salt! The burger can be decorated with spices and toppings of your choice.
Personally, I prefer to eat the burger with some coleslaw and a garlic salsa. Here is the recipe for it:
– Half a head of red cabbage
– 2 carrots
– 1 tablespoon mustard
– 1 tablespoon of sour cream
– 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
– Salt, pepper

Put everything in a bowl and knead well by hand.
