Hibiscus Blend Marinated Skewers
The Hibiscus Spice Blend is particularly suited for outdoor grilling. The subtle tangy sweet taste of this blend is enhanced by the touch of smoke from the grill. Skewers of sea food ingredients are our favorites for quick party dishes or smaller grilled Hors D'oeuvres. Eat them right off the grill...yum!
Prep time: 10 minutes Marinate time: 30 mins Cook time: 10-25 minutes
1 1/2 pounds protein, such as Chicken, Salmon, cut into 11/2” cubes, Scallops or Shrimp; cleaned, dried
1 1/2 pounds vegetables such as onions, zucchini, bell peppers, washed and trimmed
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup white wine
1 tablespoon Hibiscus Spice Blend

- In a zip top bag or large bowl, combine all ingredients, massaging spices into the protein and veggies. Marinate in the refrigerator for as little as 30 minutes or up to 24 hours if preparing in advance.
- Prepare an outdoor grill to medium-high heat and brush with oil.
- Thread protein and vegetables onto either metal or pre-soaked wooden skewers. Reserve leftover marinade
- Grill skewers on each side brushing with reserved marinade until cooked through.
Variations: Instead of Kebabs, make Skewers by cutting proteins into 6” strips and thread onto skewers as above and serve over rice or grains.
