Natalie’s marinade {that I use for Shish Kabobs}

2012-10-24 life 63587

Why do I feel so healthy when I make shish Kabobs. (And really, how in the world do you spell that word anyway?) Something about all that protein and veggies just makes me happy.  And it’s really not so tough to do. 

I know that in many parts of the world right now is not the best time for grilling, but here in the desert it’s perfect.  So here you go:

1/4 c. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. lemon juice

2 tsp. garlic salt

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/8 tsp. pepper

1/4 c. olive oil

This marinade is really good just for grilling meat without all the Shish Kabob hoopla, but I think any marinade works for making these things.

Mix ingredients, cut up meat (chicken or steak) and introduce the two to marinate for a while.  Then string them on sticks and grill.2012-10-24 life 63583

Some recipes call for marinating the veggies along with the meat.  I haven’t done that yet but I will have to try it.  2012-10-24 life 63585

One other Shish Kabob marinade from my friend Shari Goodman:

2/3 c. soy sauce

2 Tbs. oil

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 c. water

1/4 c. brown sugar

That one is really good too.


  1. yum, they look great, and we totally grill here in Canada at
    -20!!! :)

  2. I feel healthy when I make them too. I think when I prepare things *separate* instead of mixing things all together...with soups and sour cream, makes it seem healthier! This sauce sounds great!

  3. yum! I love your recipes!!

  4. I'm pretty sure it's spelled "şiş kebabı" originally. But with our alphabet shish kebab works as well ;)

    And I love the marinade. It really sounds delicious.

  5. I am loving all the recipes you have been posting. I made these tonight and your enchiladas on Sunday

  6. Yum these look so good and so healthy :) It's summer time here in Australia so perfect weather for this sort of thing.

  7. You should do like a 'flashback friday' of video clips of your children, when they were little! It'd be so cute, and fun!

  8. How do you make those potatoes you served with the kebabs? They look delish!
