best Tropical Sausage and Grilled Chiquita Banana Kebabs Recipe
If using bamboo skewers soak them in water until you are ready to thread the kebabs. Place soy sauce, juice, pepper, garlic, onion and cilantro (if using) in a blender and puree until smooth; set aside. Cut sausages into widthwise quarters. Alternately thread pieces of sausage, red peppers, green peppers and pineapple on half of the skewers. Thread banana slices on the remaining skewers. Brush the kebobs with the reserved grilling sauce. Grill sausage kebabs over a hot grill for about 8 minutes, turning frequently and brushing with the grilling sauce, until the peppers begin to char and the sausages are hot. Add banana kebabs to the grill when kebabs are about halfway cooked. Grill for about 2 minutes, turn the banana kebabs over, brush with remaining grilling sauce and grill for about 2 minutes more. Serve Tropical Sausage Kebabs and Grilled Bananas with lime wedges.
Serve on a bed of lettuces or over jasmine rice.
Serve with a tropical rum cocktail.
