Hawaiian kabobs are fun for summer parties or an exciting island-inspired weekend dinner. They are super-satisfying kabobs made with bright pineapple, red onion, bell peppers, and ham steaks, all covered in a thick, tangy barbecue marinade.

I like to pre-marinate Hawaiian skewers by combining spices and various oils and juices, then brushing them on the skewers before (and after) placing them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow them to work their way through the other components and settle. hit . You can easily use a store-bought barbecue sauce to speed up the preparation process and make a great and flavorful marinade. However, I like to add additional subtleties to the sauce that can bring out other flavors.

After absorbing the seasoning from the marinade, Hawaiian skewers are perfect for the roasting pan, where they can be cooked slowly and with minimal sloppiness to achieve the vital, subtle flavor changes that grilling (and resulting charring) may miss. When pan-cooked, the light sweetness and bright flavor mellows out the saltiness of the ham, making it perfectly flavorful and tender, while still allowing all the different elements to mingle.

I also recommend that you use fresh pineapple instead of anything you can find in a can. Freshly baked pineapple is much firmer on the grill and gets a nice caramelization when cooked. Its sweetness turns into a rich and delicious blend of sweetness when mixed with the barbecue marinade. Having pineapple hugs instead of ham steaks intensifies the distinction between sweet and salty on your palate.

I also try to always make sure there is enough marinade left, so I can use it as a sauce when serving the Hawaiian kabobs. You can enjoy the skewers on their own (this recipe makes 10-12), but they also work great with a green salad or freshly cooked bowl of fried rice.

for the marinade
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
for the skewers
  • 10-12 bamboo skewers, previously soaked in water for 30 minutes
  • 1/2 small pineapple
  • 12 oz ham steaks (you can use the back bacon)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 small red onion
  1. Put all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Set aside. Cut the skewer ingredients into cubes, then string them in any order you like.
  2. Once the skewers are all skewered, use a brush to carefully paint them with the marinade. Place the skewers on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the marinade to set on the skewers.
  3. Remove the skewers from the refrigerator and paint again with the marinade. In a preheated oven at 180 ° C, cook for 20-25 minutes, turning from time to time.
  4. Serve the skewers immediately on their own or with a side of salad. The remaining marinade can be used as a dipping sauce.
