Light Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Skewers is a perfect match of 2 cultures; a Japanese touch consisting in a teriyaki marinated chicken with an Hawaiian flair with its grilled pineapple pieces. A dynamic fresh bite guaranteed! Light Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Skewers is a variation of what my mom used to make when I was a kid. Back in the days, coming from this small town up north in Canada, the supermarket wasn’t having much choice of “Asian” ingredients except for the soy sauce.

Spicy-Mango Shrimp Skewers are a colorful, tropical and most of all delicious. Spicy and sweet is one of my favorite combination, although it’s a mildly spiced recipe. Those skewers remind me of Caribbean food, especially with the mango and little sprinkle of grated (unsweetened) coconut. You can simply make a bunch of those under 15 minutes, no need to marinate, on the BBQ or the oven, so simple to make. The solely added ingredients, other than the obvious ones, are a spicy paprika or any hot pepper powder you prefer and coconut shreds.

You also could make smaller version of skewers for a hors d’oeuvre style dinner or tapas night. I’ve added…

Tandoori chicken-pineapple skewers is an easy, packed with indian flavors dish, especially  great on the BBQ. I do not own one, so I make my skewers in the boring oven and they still taste fantastic. Tandoori, in the western world, is a simple marinade filled with different indian spices, the soft kind, not spicy at all. On the other hand, in India, they cook the chicken Tandoori in those special Tandoor oven, which of course, in the western world we don’t have. Also, in India, the tandoori marinade tends to be spicier. I’m living far away from India so I use the oven and it does the trick, but on the BBQ, I suppose it to get this smoky charcoal taste added to the spicy, sweet skewers…a dreamy mix…A great theme (indian) for your next BBQ party. So to all BBQ owners out there, try this out and send me some news! or even better invite me over.…
