Summer is a great time to experiment with flavors on the grill, and we’re loving these charred kabobs that mix tuna with peaches, and shrimp with pineapple. The unique combos totally work, especially when there’s a citrusy, herbaceous, and garlic-infused marinade involved. Lots of side dishes will shine alongside these flavor-forward entrees—try corn on the cob, potato salad, mixed greens, grilled veggies, orzo, and more.
Grilled Fruit & Seafood Kebabs
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Special equipment: Stainless steel grilling skewers
Make the marinade:
Whisk all marinade ingredients in a medium bowl.
Make the sauce:
While the skewers rest, whisk mayo and sriracha in a small bowl. (This can be made 1 day ahead and refrigerated until ready to use.)
Make the skewers:
Divide ahi tuna and peach slices onto 3 or 4 skewers, then divide shrimp and pineapple chunks onto 3 or 4 more skewers; set in a baking dish and pour the marinade on top; let sit 10 minutes.
Heat a grill pan on medium-high heat. Add skewers and grill 2 to 4 minutes per side; flipping until all sides are cooked. Drizzle sauce over skewers and serve with extra lime and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
Few tools are as important in the kitchen as a good knife. Without one, chopping, slicing, and julienning ingredients would be virtually impossible. Equally important is keeping your knife sharp—use a dull blade and you’ll end up with nothing but bruised herbs and mangled meat on your cutting boa...
