Reusable stainless steel BBQ skewers are a great gift to your summer but if you’ve never used skewers before, you might be looking at them and wondering what sort of foods work best on them for the BBQ.
BBQ skewers work great with many types of meat, veggies, and fruit. Due to the small nature of the pieces on a skewer, they also cook quickly.
If you can get them loaded up beforehand, skewers make for a great afternoon BBQ food. Skewers sets can come in wood but we’d argue a set of stainless steel works best due to their reusability and help with cooking from the inside out.
If you’re looking for some basic BBQ skewer recipes, check out these fun combinations of BBQ-friendly foods.
Grilled Chicken Salad Skewers
Grilled chicken is very common with skewers. It cooks quickly, thoroughly, and comes out juice. Combine it with some salad favourites like tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and croutons, and you have a caesar salad on your skewer ready to be topped with dressing and bacon bits.
Shrimp is another BBQ skewer meat that cooks up nicely in the summer. Interchange pieces of shrimp with lemon slices, topped with herbs, sauce, or spices of your choosing, and you have a simple skewer recipe ready to go.
Chicken, Bacon, And Ranch
A chicken and bacon combination skewer is hard to beat when topped with ranch and herbs. You can choose to keep these just meats and dressing or mix in some veggies in between, a la tomatoes.
Pineapple And Shrimp Skewers
Mix in pineapple pieces with shrimp on your skewer. Add a sweet glaze and everything’s ready to be devoured. The smokiness of the BBQ combined with some sesame seeds as garnish may equate to your new favourite BBQ skewers.
Chicken And Veggie Skewers
Take your set of stainless steel BBQ skewers and prep up some chicken. Mix in some pieces of peppers, mushrooms, carrots, and any other BBQ-friendly vegetables that pique your interest. Another instant hit in the skewer game.
Beef And Broccoli Skewers
A top Chinese food item, a mix of glazed BBQ beef pieces and cooked broccoli form an unforgettable combination.
Melon skewers aren’t meant for the BBQ. You make them. You refrigerate. You have them whenever you need. A lot of people love to soak them in booze for some added kick. Adults only.
