Preparing Your Summer Kabobs

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love grilling kabobs in the summer. It’s one of the healthiest grillers. It’s low carb, high protein, low sugar and high fiber. If you are worried about staying healthy at summer parties, make some kabobs to throw on the grill. They’re filling and full of health benefits.

The great thing about kabobs is that you can customize them anyway. The ingredients are endless and sometimes I make them with only fruit. For the kabobs I made, you’ll need:

Ingredients:
*1 lb uncooked shrimp
*2 lbs steak, diced
*2 lbs chicken, diced
*1 whole pineapple, diced
*4 corn cobs, chopped
*1 large red onion
*1 large vadilla onion
*2 large green bell peppers
*1 large orange bell pepper
*1 large red bell pepper
*2 yellow summer squash
*3 tbsps brown sugar
*1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
*garlic and herb seasoning

**Soak the skewers in water for about an hour to prevent the food from sticking to the wood.

I like to slide the corn on the bottom of the kabob to help keep all the pieces from falling off the bottom. Plus, the corn makes it super cute. Add at least two- three pieces of meat on each.

In a mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce and brown sugar until it’s thick. Drizzle the sauce over the kabobs.

Sprinkle your garlic and herb seasoning on top and then give the kabobs a quick spray with cooking spray to prevent it from sticking to the grill. You could even bake these in the oven. This recipe makes about 15-19 jumbo kabob skewers.

    I love kabobs! I usually put each type of veggie/meat on a separate kabob to make sure that each item is cooked through/not over cooked. beef takes less time than chicken and both take less time than veggies. Just a suggestion 🙂

    I’m originally from NC and have lived in CA for a while. It’s crazy, but I really miss Vidalia onions!

    Same question as Amanda! I live in a city so all I have is a tiny George Foreman grill :/

    What temperature in the oven and for how long? These look awesome, but we don’t grill! Thank you.

    Thank you for this post! I love kabobs but don’t make them as often as I would like, this is a great tutorial!

    I have never thought of cutting up the ears of corn and placing them on kabobs. Creative!

    Soaking the skewers also prevents them from catching on fire! 🙂

    Grilled pineapple and chicken is my absolute favorite! And this post just reminded me that I haven’t had that yet this summer

    Your kabobs look delicious! We always marinade our meat for a few hours before we put them on the kabobs so that they are full of flavor 🙂

      Marinating the meat is definitely the way to go!
