Peppered Tuna Kabobs Recipe

Peppered Tuna Kabobs Recipe

When we barbecue, we like to wow our guests, so dogs and burgers are out! We make tuna skewers topped with salsa—the perfect easy recipe. My five kids like to help me put them together. —Jennifer Ingersoll, Herndon, Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 pound tuna steaks, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 large sweet red peppers, cut into 2x1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium mango, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

Directions

  • 1. For salsa, in a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients; set aside.
  • 2. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Rub tuna with pepper. On four metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread red peppers, tuna and mango.
  • 3. Grill, covered, over medium heat 10-12 minutes for medium-rare or until slightly pink in the center and peppers are tender, turning occasionally. Serve with salsa. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
