Devilishly Divine Tropical Kabobs With a Devious Twist

"This recipe is a result of the Zaar World Tour 2007 for the Caribbean Grilling/Jerk Challenge. Our team - The Devilishly Devious Diners - created this recipe with help and ingredients from all the members. We've included beef, chicken and shrimp but feel free to add or delete any of the different meats. We used our very own ellie_'s Recipe #108351 for the jerk seasoning. It was very good accompanied by a long grain and wild rice mixture as well as mama's kitchen Recipe #139883 The rum soaked fruit is our devious contribution to this great recipe!"

    Outstanding! I used shrimp only, and I honestly did not miss the other meats. I also skipped the rice. The flavor from the marinade is incredible. I followed the recipe for that part exactly, using Ellie's Jamaican Spice Mixture for the seasoning. This is sure to become a summer staple for me, and I like that I can switch up the proteins and it'll still be delicious. Thanks so much!!

    Yummy! We used the marinade overnight to just marinade some chicken breasts for the grill. It was delicious!! I can't wait to try it with the other meats and veggies! Thank yoU!

    This is fantastic! We made it for a Caribbean-themed Father's Day dinner (complete with Pussers Painkillers - yum!) and it was a HUGE hit. My dad, who is a great cook and prefers his own food to even restaurants, couldn't stop saying, "Mmmm" long enough to say "Thank you!" This is definitely a keeper, though we had the same issue as others with the mango falling off. The ones tucked into the onions worked the best.

    My son and I just LOVED these! We made it a "family" project and by the time we sat down to eat them our mouths were watering! Delicious! I made these exactly like the recipe!

    These were great. I used the Jamaican Spice Mixture suggested & it was perfect. I made as per the recipe, except that I left out the shrimp & forgot to put the onion onto the skewers :oops: The only problem I had was that the mango chunks cooked very quickly & fell off the skewers as we were eating, but it wasn't a big deal for us. I made these as part of an Iron Chef-style mango challenge for a dinner party last weekend. I'm so glad I finally got to try this recipe, as I ran out of time during ZWT3. Thanks for this keeper.
