So what are you waiting for? Fire up the barbie, pick those wild berries and get cooking.

Here, we’ll give you some fresh, vibrant and easy recipes to follow to make the most of the season…

Grilled prawn souvlaki

This is a real winner this time of year, especially with Australia’s thriving Greek population.

The dish, that hails from Greece, combines seafood, vegetables and a heap of herbs to make a fibre-packed Mediterranean healthy meal.

Grab fresh prawns, zesty fruits, dill, oregano, yoghurt, peppers, cherry tomatoes, lettuce and red onion and you’re ready to go. Lie these on a bed of whole-grain flatbread.

Sesame seed-crusted salmon burger

This Asian inspired burger puts a unique twist on a summer classic.

Healthy salmon covered with breadcrumbs consisting of ginger, sesame seeds and soy sauce combined for a delicious burger that comes in at under 500 calories even with a healthy dose of Greek yoghurt on top.

However, if this sounds like too much effort, you’ll find healthy dishes on Deliveroo, who have a plethora of menus and cuisines on offer from the best restaurants in your area.

Heirloom Gazpacho

A tangy cold soup packed with vitamins, this dish is great as a starter, but can also be used as part of a multi dish main.

Eat with whole-wheat bread or prosciutto accompanied with a summer salad, making sure to use the in season ingredients.

Heirloom tomatoes, garlic, sugar, sherry vinegar, olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, yellow and orange bell peppers, basil, and large shrimp all feature in this seasonal dish.

Bavette with chimichurri sauce

Steak with chimichurri sauce is a classic combination, but pickled jalapenos give it a modern twist.

Easily cooked in under 20 minutes, the thinly sliced steak barely loiters in the pan before being ready to serve.

Toasted corn on the cob with a chunk of almond or coconut butter is the perfect accompaniment.

Filet mignon with Roquefort and red leaf

Deliciously pungent cheese and filet mignon means this dish is packed with iron, protein and plenty of helpful minerals from the green vegetables.

This, with Yukon Gold potatoes, Dijon mustard and red leaf lettuce combine well with the strong cheese and steak.

Crunchy bulghar salad

If you’re looking for something really light, this salad is ideal for you.

A vibrant summer salad with radishes, edamame beans, peppers, almonds and herbs, drizzled with a citrus dressing, this encapsulates the summer.

That’s our six super healthy summer meals, be sure to try one of these great options.
