Turn up the heat on the BBQ this summer and impress your guests with something new. We love BBQ skewers for many reasons, primarily because they are so easy and it’s simple to switch up the flavours and experience something entirely new!
Here are a few ideas to get you started! And don’t forget, many of the meats we mention below can be found at our meat shops in Calgary or Rosemary, or at the Calgary Farmers’ Market.
Broccoli and Beef
Broccoli and beef is simple, yet effective! Try adding tamari or teriyaki sauce to give this set of skewers an Asian flavour.
Cheese Burger Kebabs
Take this as literal as you would like! Grill up the Hamburger and add all the fixings. You can even make this a do-it-yourself station, so it becomes a more interactive dish.
Grilled Shrimp Skewers
Add pineapple, zucchini or really whatever vegetable you’re craving. There isn’t much shrimp doesn’t go with, especially if you’re using the right sauce.
Surf and Turf Skewers
Mixing and matching is the name of our game. Try mixing salmon, shrimp, or crab with steak, pork or chicken. The key to this skewer is finding the right marinade that will compliment both flavour profiles.
Pork and Pineapple Kebabs
It’s like a Hawaiian meal, on a stick! Try a sweet and sour sauce that will enhance the pork flavour and bring out the sweetness of the pineapple.
The Japanese certainly know how to do skewers well. Don’t forget to add ginger, garlic, and soy to give that extra rich Japanese kick.
Steak Fajita Skewers
Grill up some steak, peppers, and onions and string them along the stick. These are a great appy, as you begin to introduce the main course.
Grilled Veggie Kebab
If you’re looking to keep things healthy, mix and match a variety of fresh veggies from the market. Add some olive oil with a touch of garlic, oregano, and basil – enjoy!
– These German influenced skewers are made of crispy pork belly and are available for a limited time in our store. They come pre-seasoned and ready to throw on the grill!
