Broiled Halibut Kabobs Recipe

Broiled Halibut Kabobs Recipe

My grandmother used to prepare these kabobs for special occasions. The orange-flavored barbecue sauce complements the fish nicely, whether it is broiled or grilled.—Tiffany O'Neill, Rossville, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 pounds halibut fillets
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained
  • 8 to 10 cherry tomatoes
  • BARBECUE SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 to 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. Cut fish into 1-in. pieces. On metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the fish, green pepper, onion, pineapple and tomatoes. In a small bowl, whisk the sauce ingredients until blended.
  • 2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting occasionally with sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
