Hawaiian Chicken Bacon Pineapple Kebabs

(Cafe Delites)

It’s summer and there is no better time to make use of the grill then now. One of the quickest, simplest and tastiest ways to cook on the grill is to make kebabs. Or kabobs. Or skewers. Whatever you call them, the concept of threading ingredients on a stick and grilling them is just ingenious. Now only are kebabs easy and require very little cleanup, but you can literally put anything on them.

Kebabs are flexible, and can easily fit varying dietary needs and tastes. Love your meat? Lamb kebabs or tender beef kebabs come calling. Vegetarian? How about mushrooms or cauliflower chunks on a stick? Pescatarian? Try some grilled shrimp or halloumi kebabs. I told you, this concept works for everyone and every ingredient.

Here are 17 chicken, fish, steak and vegetable kebab recipes for summer. Browse through them, pick your favorites and prepare to only be eating kebabs from here on out.
