A quick and tasty way I cook tomatoes on the BBQ. The ingredient quantities are not all that precise - just add to your own taste.


  1. Cut tomatoes in half.
  2. drizzle with a little olive oil.
  3. sprinkle with basil.
  4. grind pepper over the top.
  5. I normally then pop in the fridge a while (say 30 mins) while working on other stuff as it helps the flavour develop.
  6. Cook uncut side down for around 5 minutes over low heat on BBQ plate.
  7. flip over and cook further 5 minutes with cut side down.
  8. return to original position for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
