I love meat on a stick. There is just something fun about pairing different flavors on a skewer and grilling them up to perfection, letting their unique flavors meld together over the fire of the grill. There are so many delectable combinations for a skewer, but I’ve narrowed it down to the five best skewer recipes that you simply have to try:
Rosemary and lemon make up an out of this world flavor combination that works really well on both seafood and poultry. For this recipe, the rosemary serves as both a source of herbaceous smoke flavor, an herb in the marinade, as well as the actual skewer for the shrimp, which makes for an AWESOME presentation on and off the grill.

Nothing takes a salsa from “good” to “WOW” faster than smokiness off the grill. This was the inspiration for my “salsa skewers.” Find the recipe here!
In this recipe, the chicken is marinated in a flavorful Thai Peanut satay sauce, then grilled on skewers with sweet Vidalia onions and zucchini. Additional sauce is served for dipping and is a great compliment to a rice side dish. Find the recipe here!
For these skewers, I paired chicken marinated in Stubb’s Original BBQ sauce (Stubb’s is my go-to store bought BBQ sauce), paired with the subtle heat of poblano peppers, peaches, and red onions. It is a great combination of sweet and slightly spicy. Find the recipe here!
