Curried Kebabs

What’s shaken bacon? 

I have a SMOKIN good recipe for you – and it’s easy and customizable. It came from a gouda (yes like the cheese) friend who brought kebabs to a beach fire the other night.

Kebabs + beach fire – beauty!

So I just loved this idea – and then we had to bring food to a birthday party the other night.. que kebabs (I like that word kebab!).

What oh what to marinate the kebabs in?  

                  What is one of my very favourite flavours in the whole wide world?

                                                     CURRY of course!  Red Thai curry to be exact!

Chop up which ever veggies you desire; 

                 Ours included; mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, peppers, onions, zucchini, and fresh pineapple.

Throw into a bowl (or I mean place gently <veggies have feelings you know>)

Mix together in a bowl  (two different options for marinade)

Orange Curry

1/4 cup orange juice

2 TBSP oil (I used grape seed)

2 TBSP red curry paste

OR

Coconut Curry

1/4 cup coconut milk

2 TBSP red curry paste

Dash or so of fish sauce !!

A pinch of sugar!

Pour over veggies and let sit for as long as possible!  A couple of hours at very least!

_______________________________________________

While marinating you need to soak your skewers so they don’t burn on the BBQ~

Up next it’s time to stack.

I have no rhyme or reason for how I do it, BUT i always start and end with a zucchini piece!

Keep going until everyone is full.

DSC_0919Poor lonely mushroom skewer – somebody in this house hold (no names) doesn’t like mushrooms.

BUT I DOOOOO!!

Stack em and get ready to BBQ!

Grill on medium heat until the veggies get to desired level of readiness.

We like our to have char marks on them, and we judge when they are done by the caramelization of the onions!

These ones weren’t grilled enough!  But we were SO hungry!

Awesome idea to bring to a potluck – and make sure you do the fresh pineapple it was amazing!!

You could also make some fruit ones to grill  - think pineapple, peaches, nectarines – maybe even grapes?

I think these might be my favourite summer dinner meal so far!!

 

What’s your favourite go to summer meal?

PS.  If you are wanting to the raw thing – just marinate these babies over night and the marinade should soften the veggies!

 

PSS… if you haven’t noticed – I’m in a a giddy/over tired mood haha.. hopefully I didn’t scare you away!  This post was written WAY past my bedtime!

  4. Those look so good, and I LOVE curry too!! In the summer we usually BBQ a lot, but this summer has been different. I was so busy with my class up until now that I didn't have time to plan any spectacular meals. Luckily now I have some time on my hands.

  10. I love those ideas for marinades- I don't know what I'd try first - so I suppose I'd have to try them both! I'd also scoop up that lonely mushroom kabob first - mushrooms are my favorite!
