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.


Grilled Andouille & Spicy Shrimp Kabobs

This is a summertime classic. Each juicy shrimp hugs a chunk of Cajun sausage in this quick kabob recipe. We brush the kabobs with a spicy, seasoned oil for an extra punch of flavor.


Pork Adobo Skewers

Filipino-style adobo is one of our comfort food favorites. Who can resist tender meat braised in a tangy sauce of soy, garlic, and vinegar? You can still get adobo flavor when it’s too hot to braise – just try this easy recipe for grilled pork tenderloin with adobo-style marinade.


Spiced Lamb Kofta Kebabs

These juicy spiced ground lamb kebabs take just minutes to make. They’re delicious on pita with a little herbed yogurt and cool, crisp veggies. Extra-wide double skewers make them easy to turn over smoking hot coals.
