The perfect finish to any summer dish P10652 AAK 171 Steak Toastada Lion Header

At Lion, we pride ourselves on creating premium sauces – that will add the perfect finishing touch every time.

We trust chefs to grill meats and fish to juicy, charred perfection. To sauté and bake and boil that perfect al dente vegetable. To create the freshest salads and most scrumptious desserts. But Lion can provide that little extra something that takes your dishes to that next level.

This summer, there are several dining trends chefs should keep abreast of – from ‘easy eating’ to ‘tasty veg’ and ‘occasion dining’. We’re going to show you how simple it is to elevate your dishes and meet trends with Lion Sauces this summer.

Summer is the time to take it easy and this year’s menu choices should reflect that. Consider finger food and handheld options – which leaves your diners better able to chat and catch up over food.

Some great on-trend options are skewered dishes like Piri Piri Chicken Kebabs or Korean Tofu and Vegetable Skewers, or tasty handheld choices like Korean BBQ Tuna Wraps.

An on-trend Mexican inspired Steak Tostada is a fun alternative to a steak sandwich, and burgers are always a summertime favourite, like our fun, vegan Smothered maple and Bourbon BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Burger.

Gorgeous grilled proteins can be taken to the next level with the addition of a hot sauce like the Very Hot Chilli Sauce, a tasty BBQ choice like Sticky BBQ Sauce, or inspired by world flavours like our Korean BBQ Sauce.

The tasty veg trend is all about taking the humble vegetable to the next level – whether that’s a stunning salad or a tasty side. Also big this summer are Buddha bowls and superfoods! Some great recipes for this trend include the Green Lioness Bowl, inspired by the viral green goddess salad, the Lioness Buddha Bowl, packed with protein and veg, as well as our Superfood Salad – which is not only good for you, but tastes great!

Halloumi is still a great option for flexitarian diet, with our Halloumi Cous Cous Salad a real crowd pleaser, while vegetarians can also enjoy a Quinoa, Feta & Pomegranate Salad, which can be made vegan with the inclusion of a plant-based feta.

When thinking about how to get the most out of fresh, seasonal salads and vegetables think creamy, rich mayo or zingy salad dressings, and don’t forget to look after vegan diners with our range of plant-based sauces.

Sparkling side dishes can help make any summertime meal unforgettable for diners, so don’t forget to bring that extra special something by bringing fresh flavours to your snacks and sides, too.

Our Spiced Crunchy Noodle Slaw brings fresh Asian flavours to give a twist to a traditional coleslaw, while our Bacon & Chicken Caesar Potato Salad gives a meaty twist to traditional potato salad. Spicy potatoes are the star of the show on our patatas bravas.

Whatever you have planned for your diners this summer, make sure you make it an extra special experience for your diners by adding a finishing touch with Lion Sauces.
