delicious and fun way to vary your outdoor grilling is with
kebabs. Kebabs are almost limitless in the combinations of
meats, fish and vegetables and even fruits you can prepare.
Truly a no mess meal, serving kebabs will eliminate almost
all your pots and pans since the entire meal can be skewered
To make great kebabs, follow these simple
- Kebabs can be made with metal or wooden
skewers. Both types of skewers are available in a variety
of lengths and widths. Choose the length that suits the
type of food you will be skewering and that will comfortably
fit your grill.
- If you are using wooden skewers, be sure
to soak them in water at least 30 minutes before using.
This will prevent them from catching on fire on the grill.
- Meats and vegetables take different amounts
of time to cook, so to cook them evenly, try skewering the
meat and the vegetables on separate skewers. This way, you
can start grilling the meat first, and then grill the vegetables
for a shorter period of time.
- If you want to grill meat and vegetables
on the same skewer, make sure you select firm vegetables.
- Make sure you cut meat in uniform bite-size
pieces. This will make cooking more even and make your kebabs
easier to eat.
- Meat kebabs should be marinated, to give
the morsels of meat a special flavor all the way through.
Once on the grill, kebabs can be basted with your favorite
- Always remember to oil the grill before
should be grilled on hot, direct heat for a short period
