    Chicken Kebabs

    Swordfish Kebabs

    Shrimp Kebabs

    • 20 ounces shrimp, tail-on, shelled and de-veined (16 to 20 pieces)
    • 3/4 cup lemon marinade (see Lemon Marinade)
    • 1 English cucumber, ends trimmed, peeled, and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices

    For lamb kebabs

    Beef kebabs

    For vegetable kebabs

    • 1 medium red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut into 1-inch-square pieces
    • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut into 1-inch-square pieces
    • 1 medium green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut into 1-inch-square pieces
    • 1 medium eggplant, cut lengthwise into 8 slices, then cut crosswise into 1-inch wedges (about 1 lb)
    • 1 medium red onion, cut into 8 slices then separated into rings
    • 1 lb cremini mushroom, stems trimmed
    • 2 medium yellow squash, ends trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 3/4 lb)
    • 1 large zucchini, ends trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 1/2 lb)
    • 3/4 cup balsamic marinade (see Balsamic Marinade)
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon dried basil

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak 12-inch bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
    2. 2
      Prepare a plastic freezer bag or bags for each type of kebab being prepared. Beef and lamb should marinate about 4 hours. Chicken and shrimp marinates about 2 hours; swordfish 20 minutes. Add marinade and seal while removing as much air as possible.
    3. 3
      Thread each skewer with one kind of vegetable or meat, facing the same way, for even cooking. Can be refrigerated for up to one day at this point. Bring to room temperature before grilling.
    4. 4
      Marinade used for the veggies can be reused or add a little oil to make a salad dressing! Meat marinades must be discarded.
    5. 5
      Prepare a medium hot grill for direct heat cooking. Wipe kebab with paper towel, then spray food with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Cook chicken, beef, and lamb 10 - 12 minutes; vegetables 8 to 10 minutes; swordfish 6 - 8 minutes; shrimp 4 - 5 minutes, turning frequently.
    6. 6
      Remove from skewers and serve. If serving several different kebabs, arrange in rows on platter.

      I couldn't believe the taste of grilled cucumber....it tasted like mushrooms! What a fabulous discovery. The meat was wonderful as well....thanks for sharing such a vast array of choices in your recipe. Loved it!

      I made the beef kebabs and they were terrific! Cutting mini long English cucumbers in 1" slices and threading the metal skewers through the middle of them ensured that they didn't fall off. I didn't think that I would like the cucumber on the grill, but it is very good! It still had its crunch but a bit of a grilled flavour. I heated up pitas on the grill and stuffed them with the kebab contents, lettuce, tomato and tzatziki sauce. I used the marinade listed - Balsamic Marinade. Made for ZWT6 - Thanks Ice Cool Kitty! :)
