One of the things that I like the most when the weather is nice is to make BBQs. Back at home, we make BBQs almost every weekend, but then, over there, there is only one season, summer… so we can enjoy the weather more often than in the UK.
Nevertheless, when we can make BBQs here is always nice to try new recipes alongside our all-time favourites, and this recipe is for sure a crowd pleaser.
If you follow my blog you might have figured that I like to do a lot of fusion between the creole flavours of Venezuela’s cuisine and the spicy, strong and robust flavours of the traditional Calabrian cuisine. And this recipe is no different.
On one side you have the spicy ‘Nduja, black olives, fresh Rosemary and Caciocavallo cheese, and on the other, cumin powder, Worcester sauce, garlic powder and Casava chips sprinkled with fresh chopped Coriander and Parsley. And you might think, what the hell these are really strong flavours!! Yes, they are, and they work perfectly..!! Plus my food is not for the weak palate …

Of course, the recipe can be umphhhh a little more by adding more ‘Nduja, it really depends on how spicy you wanted it to be.
And when it comes to building your burger, well, I left it to your imagination. Personally I like mine how I did it on the video, but you might want to add something else… At the end is the burger, i.e. the meat what’s going to give it the life to this dish and that is full of flavour!
I got the ‘Nduja HERE and it comes with a price of £12 per 400gr and £19 for 800gr. And the products is the real deal, I mean it really comes from Calabria.
