High Stakes: 5 Recipes for Meat on Skewers

Meat skewered on a stick and cooked over a fire is a constant across cultures. Probably the very earliest of cooking tools, a sharp stick makes it easy to control cooking time, and keeps your hands from the flames. The tradition has endured, and makes a convenient finger food for summer parties.

In these 5 easy recipes, we use different proteins, including charcuterie, and explore flavors from Southeast Asia to Southwest France. All are perfect for grilling on a summer weekend.

Grilled Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce

This easy recipe for chicken satay is packed with Southeast Asian flavor. A long marinade in coconut milk and 8 different aromatics makes for super tender chicken that’s highly flavored in every bite.
