As the barbecue is still out, I used it to cook the meat for this beef noodle salad. There are no pots and pans needed here — a bit of slicing and dicing and a quick fry on the barbecue and, voila, dinner is served.

Serves 4

Zest of 1 lemon
¼ cup lemon juice
2 tsp fish sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
½ cup basil

400g sirloin steak
1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp paprika
Salt and pepper to season
½ red and ½ green pepper
200g mushrooms, halved
3 courgettes, sliced
2 cups crispy noodles
1 cup basil leaves

1. To make the dressing, place lemon, fish sauce, sesame, honey, ginger and basil in a jar and shake well to combine.

2. Rub steak with oil, paprika, salt and pepper.

3. Preheat a barbecue to a high heat. Cook the steak for 3 or 4 minutes each side. Set aside.

4. Cook the peppers, mushrooms and courgettes on the grill until just cooked.

5. Place the vegetables in a large bowl, Slice the meat thinly and add to the bowl. Toss through the dressing, crispy noodles and basil. Serve immediately with extra basil leaves to garnish.
