Winner: Spicy Jerk Chicken with Coconut Oil, Cook it with Kids (Winner) 

This West-Indian inspired, sweet and spicy recipe for jerk chicken looks amazing, and would work equally well with fish or vegetables. It combines versatile Vita Coco Coconut Oil with dried chillies and fresh garlic. Jess recommends whizzing up the Jerk marinade well ahead of time so your chicken can absorb the flavours for a few hours – we think it’s well worth the wait! 

Vita Coco Basil and Lemon Marinated Fish & Barbecue Salad (Runner Up) 

This recipe for marinated fish using Vita Coco Coconut Oil and a barbecued salad is super inventive, and looks delicious. Rebecca has used healthy salmon with fresh skewers of salad vegetables and crispy barbecued gem lettuce – our judges thought this was so creative! 

BBQ Coconut Lime Coriander Chicken 

Vita Coco Coconut Oil really is the star of the show in this gorgeous coconut lime chicken recipe from Helen at Crazy Kitchen. 

Coconut and Lime Prawn Skewers 

Barbecue doesn’t just mean burgers and sausages, and we love this family-friendly coconut and lime prawn skewers recipe from Louise at A Strong Coffee. 

BBQ Chicken Mozzarella Parcels

Wrapping food up before firing up the barbecue lets things get really moist and tasty, so we love this recipe for barbecued chicken parcels with mozzarella and Vita Coco Coconut Oil from Blog Bay Bee. Taking just 30 minutes to make, why not give them a try this weekend?

Barbecued Halloumi and Mushroom Skewers 

It’s not always easy to be inspired when cooking for vegetarians on the barbecue, but these halloumi and mushroom skewers from Jagruti should more than impress your veggie visitors this summer.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
