Kebabs with Moroccan Ras el Hanout rub

I am going to post  a couple of BBQ recipes a week to launch us into the summer season! Hurrah!

Here is an exotic Moroccan style recipe to try on your barbeque. It works well with, beef, chicken, lamb or even tofu. 

Serves 4 people


3 chicken breasts, or meat of your choice, cubed into 1 inch pieces 
1 pint cherry or strawberry tomatoes
1 yellow pepper, seeds removed, sliced into long strips
1 medium yellow or Vidalia onion, cut into thick slices
3 tsp. olive oil
3 tsp. lemon juice
wooden or metal skewers

Combine lemon, oil, rub and meat in a large bowl and marinate for 1 hr or overnight.
Assemble kebabs by threading alternating onion, meat, tomatoes and pepper onto the skewers.
(If you are using wooden skewers on the BBQ, you will want to soak the skewers in water for 1/2 hour before you start assembling them).
Place skewers on a hot grill (or under your broiler for 7-9 minutes) until nicely charred and the meat is cooked through to your liking.

Serve with a side of couscous, the salad so nice they named it twice.

Happy BBQ!
