How to Make the Best Skewers

April 6, 2022 | By: The Darling Dish

The secret ingredient to making the best skewers on the grill? Darling Citrus®, of course! Skewers are an easy, delicious, crowd-pleasing option to serve at a party, or for a quick dinner at home. Fresh citrus adds the perfect balance of flavor and color to these fun handheld bites.

Here are a few of our favorite skewer recipes (Spoiler alert: these aren’t your average combo of chicken and squash!).

1. Citrus BBQ Shrimp Kabobs

That beautiful springtime weather is here and we’re ready to get grilling! Switch up your standard BBQ menu with these Citrus BBQ Shrimp Kabobs. All you’ll need is shrimp, green beans, and Darling Clementines®, but feel free to customize with additional veggies and seasonings!  The clementines give a pop of sweetness while complementing the bold flavor of the shrimp.

2. Stacked Fruit Snacks

What are your favorite fruits, Darling? Pair them with Darling Oranges® and clementines on a skewer for a twist on your classic fruit snack. You can add donuts, marshmallows, Medjool dates, or granola bar pieces to spice up your stacked fruit snacks even more!


3. Citrus Caprese Skewers

Who doesn’t want a quick charcuterie on a stick? Grab your favorite prosciutto or cured meat and pair it with mozzarella, fresh basil, and Darling Clementines® for a delicious skewered snack. Pack these Citrus Caprese Skewers in your lunchbox as an afternoon snack or serve as an easy appetizer at your next event!
