Don’t have a grill?  Roast uncovered (no skewers) on an aluminum lined baking sheet ~ 12-15 minutes, turning once.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • Kabob skewers – 17″ stainless steel – reusable
  • Bamboo skewers – 12″ disposable bamboo skewers – remember to soak them ~ 15 minutes so they don’t catch on fire.
