In our house, Father's Day is usually synonymous with the outdoors and barbecuing. This year I think I will make one of our barbecue favourites - Shish Kebabs. These are so easy to make!
While preparing your veggies, soak your skewers for at least 1/2 hour so they do not catch on fire while grilling. While you can put a any number of different veggies and fruits on your Shish Kebabs, we love the following: sweet onion, pineapple, mushrooms, red peppers and green peppers. These all seem to cook at about the same rate so they pair well. Another thing I take into consideration is the amount of time meat takes to cook versus the veg. I will often grill the meat separately or use a precooked sausage such as bratwurst, so we do not have burnt vegetables and rare steak on the same kebab!
Once your skewers are soaked, veggies are cubed and sausage is sliced you can start assembling the kebabs. The favourite flavour pairing in our household is pineapple next to onion. Yum! We simply brush with some olive oil and place the skewers on the grill. You can spice as you desire. Cook over medium heat, turning as necessary and removing when cooked to your preference.
Alternately, do not use skewers, just place all veg and meat onto a barbecue grilling tray and place it on the barbecue. Stir, or flip as necessary.
Serve with your favourite side dishes.
Enjoy a Happy Father's Day!
