BBQ Sausages with Capsicum and Tomato Salsa

Take sausages from everyday to out of the ordinary with this mouth-watering capsicum and tomato salsa. The salsa is easy to make using roasted capsicum form the deli or a jar.

Prep Time

        Prep time: 10 minutes
        Cook time: 12 minutes
        Yield: Serves 4


    •    1 tbsp chopped capers
    •    2 tsps red or white wine vinegar
    •    6 cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
    •    2 1/2 roasted red capsicum, chopped
    •    2 1/2 roasted green capsicum, chopped
    •    12 x thin beef sausages or flavoured sausages


  1. Preheat the barbecue char-grill or flat-plate to moderate before adding the sausages. Cut the links between the sausages (do not pierce them).
  2. Once the barbecue is heated, add the sausages. Use tongs to turn the sausages regularly to ensure that they cook evenly and don’t burn. Sausages must always be cooked right through to the centre.
  3. While sausages are cooking combine the capsicums, tomatoes, capers and vinegar. Serve the sausages with the salsa.


  1. The best tip for cooking sausages is not to pierce them before or during the cooking. If you prick good quality sausages you let all the moisture and the flavour out.
  2. Our other best tip – cook them slowly over a moderate heat. If you cook them too fast over too high a heat the skins may burst.
