I’m all about quick and dirty…thats probably why I like Karen so much : ) Now getting back to meals. Here is super great summer bbq meal that is effortless. You can use whatever items you have on hand to create your ideal kabobs.
1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
12 cloves Garlic
Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste)
*Fruits and Vegetables (we use Red onion, Mushrooms, Sweet Peppers and Pineapple)
*Meats (we like to use a variety: Shrimp, Chicken, Steak)
- Cut all vegetables, fruit and meat to about 1” cubes. Dust all with EVOO, sea salt and pepper.
- Then for the skewers: We have used both metal and wooden and I don’t think the taste is really different. If you are going to use wooden skewers, you have to soak them in cold water for about 30 minutes prior to using, or they will splinter. …Maybe. …but do you really want to take that risk? Metal skewers are great because you can reuse them, which if you love the grill like we do, I would go this route.
- Now load the skewers up!
- If loosely packed kabobs (touching, but not smashed), timed for medium-high heat on the grill, I’d put you at about 8-12 minutes total. Don’t forget to flip! If you want to do these in the oven, just line a baking sheet with tin foil and heat that oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit – cook for 10-15 minutes… Don’t forget to still flip!!
For a complete meal, serve this with our Paleo Coleslaw, or Sweet Potato Fries!
