The weather is rotten, so since I can't barbeque I have started experimenting making fresh fruit sorbets with spice.

The fruits of last week's BBQ: delicious kebabs on my friend's back deck, served with fresh strawberry daiquiris. Yum!
1 pound (500 grams) of your favorite cut of red meat, cut into approximately 1 inch cubes
1 -2 small zucchini, sliced into 1/2 inch rounds
1 red pepper and one yellow pepper, seeded and sliced into medium chunks
1 red or vidallia onion
3 tablespoons olive oil
Take meat and cover it generously with the rub and press on with your fingertips. Brush meat lightly with olive oil. Thread onto skewers, alternating with the sliced vegetables. Place skewers on grill and cook until middle or meat cubes are well cooked, depending on heat of your grill. Let meat rest for a few minutes after removing it from the grill to allow the juices to redistribute. Serve with corn chips and fresh salsa.
Serves 4-5 adults

500 grams of fresh blue marlin filets, skinless
2 heaping tablespoons chimichurri rub
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
4 whole wheat burritos or pita
2 fresh sliced tomatoes
1/4 red onion sliced into thin rings
1 cup of romaine or arugula, rinsed and torn
Rinse marlin and pat dry.
Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice over marlin filets and pat rub onto both sides of fish.
Place fish on grill or under the broiler and cook for about 8-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your filets.
Let fish cool for 2-3 minutes then slice into bite sized cubes. Place fish in tortillas or pitas over lettuce, onions, and tomatoes.
Roll up and serve. You can add a sauce or salsa for dipping as well, but I like mine nude. ;-)

When I was thinking about writing this post I remembered the last time I made butter chicken for friends. It was Oscar night so the theme was Indian obviously (Jai Ho!) and when I presented my lovely dish of butter chicken along with the dal, sag aloo and naan bread, it illicited many aahs of pleasure, and even a marriage proposal, so I thought I should share.
