Fire up the barbie for Christmas and get an Asian twist going on. These dishes are designed to go in the middle of the table with steamed rice for a fantastic, tasty lunch. They go well together, but they're also flexible: for example, you could swap the quail for turkey steaks – just don't overcook them. Or for an extra vegetable dish, grill some fresh asparagus while the barbecue's still warm and drizzle with oyster sauce.

You can also use any summer fruit you like with this Island Holiday dessert – but keep the tangy lychee granita. It makes things far more interesting.
