These are great tasting skewers I really enjoyed, lovely combination of flavors! I made half the recipe as this was for just me and broiled them instead of grilling them. I had two skewers with rice and the other 2 skewers were tossed in a spinach salad to bring to work for lunch. These will be made often here.
