Summer Simplicity: Grilled Veggies and Prawns

One of my favourite parts about summer is the simplicity of barbequing your food. There is no advanced planning required, the cooking usually takes under 10 minutes, and the food ends up being amazingly flavourful. For our last dinner party, Peter (our resident BBQ master) tossed some peppers, broccoli and asparagus in olive oil, sea salt, and pepper and barbequed them to perfection.
