Teriyaki Shish Kabobs Recipe
My father worked for an airline in the 1960's, when I was a teenager, and my family lived on the island of Guam in the South Pacific. A friend of Mother's there gave her this wonderful recipe. We ate this delicious warm-weather dish often, and now I prepare it for my family. —Suzanne Pelegrin, Ocala, Florida
