"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."

Ready In:




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

  1. Really really good. Thank you.
  2. Gotta love how easy this is. I'm not a big tomato fan but these were good. Thanks for sharing!
  3. This is one of my favourite ways of having fresh from the garden tomatoes. I also sometimes add a little garlic salt to the topping. These also work well cooked in a pan on the stove top. A real keeper. :) Made for Aus/Nz swap March 2010
  4. *Reviewed for ZWT5 Australia visit* Great tomatoes Peter. Super easy for a great side to recipe#247808 using T-bones and snags. Nothing beats a good Aussie barbie. I made these in advance and left them in the fridge for about an hour. I feel the flavours did blend with the tomatoes. We used vine-ripened tomatoes and the end results were a super sweet and juicy.Photo also being posted
  5. We really like these tomatoes. It was our first time cooking tomatoes on the bbq. But we felt like there was something missing. Another time I'll drizzle balsamic vinegar on the tomatoes. Thanks Peter :) Made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=http://www.satsleuth.com/VisitorMap/stats.php?id=vUa1ya8Z> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/VisitorMap/globes/Globe_vUa1ya8Z.gif alt= /></a></p>
