Tuesday - September 20th, 2016

There’s nothing like firing up the barbecue for your 4th of July celebration! An easy way to grill a variety of meats and veggies quickly is to put together some shish kabobs. It’s also a healthier alternative to hot dogs and hamburgers, especially if you use proteins like salmon or mackerel (good sources of vitamin D), tofu (loaded with phosphorus, a mineral that protects tooth enamel), and lots of veggies. Here are some fun ways to assemble your holiday skewers.

Rosemary-Lime Salmon Kabobs


Mix together garlic, rosemary, oil and lime juice. Pour the mixture over the salmon and veggies and let them marinate for 15-30 minutes. Alternate salmon and veggies on the skewer, then grill for about 5 to 7 minutes, turning the skewers once.

Teriyaki Tofu Kabobs


Skewer the ingredients alternating tofu, mushrooms, onions, bell pepper and zucchini. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes, or until veggies are tender and crisp, turning skewers occasionally. Brush the tofu and veggies liberally with the teriyaki baste and glaze and cook for another few minutes until the glaze is set.
