Summer eating is all about spending as little time as possible in front of a hot stove. Celebrate the zesty, fruity, fresh flavours of the season with these recipes.

Summer Top 10 recipes

1. Marina's ostrich carpaccio
- few things say "al fresco eating" better than a plate of chilled wafer-thin slices of meat and fresh crusty bread to mop up the juices.

2. Crustless red onion and mushroom quiche
- enjoy this lighter version of quiche with a crunchy green salad.

3. Low-fat chicken enchiladas
- spiced juicy chicken, rolled in tortillas and baked in white sauce. What's not to love?

4. Rocket salad with fillet, gorgonzola and pasta - Serving fillet in this way is not just delicious, it also makes a little of this expensive cut go far.

5. Yellowtail with olive and herb sauce
- a deliciously fragrant olive and herb sauce that will perk up any firm white fish or even grilled chicken breast.

6. Cornbread
- a great recipe to have in your repertoire of braai side dishes. Really delicious with a chunky guacamole too.

7. Braaied Snoek - Toss piping hot baby potatoes with thinly sliced red onion, olive oil and a glug of cider vinegar for a zingy side dish that goes with anything on the braai.

8. Lamb chops with salsa verde - a smashed green herb and olive oil sauce that keeps well and takes grilled meats to another level. 

9. Speedy strawberry and white chocolate ice-cream
- you don't need an ice-cream machine for this ultimate summer indulgence.

10. Low-fat creme caramel
  - silky and luxurious, serve this perfect make-ahead pud with fresh berries.
