“This recipe for Mojo Barramundi Kabobs is skewers of mild fish, pineapple, and peppers. All flavored with a bright and zesty sauce and grilled to perfection. An unexpected yet delicious appetizer!” Recipe and photos are courtesy of Sara of Dinner at the Zoo.


Step 1
Preheat the grill or a grill pan to medium-high heat.
Step 2
Place ⅓ cup olive oil, orange juice, lime juice, garlic and cilantro leaves in a food processor. Processor until thoroughly combined. Add salt and pepper to taste. Reserve ⅓ of the marinade for later use.
Step 3
Place the fish in the marinade and marinate for 20-30 minutes. Do not marinate for more than an hour or the citrus in the marinade will cook the fish.
Step 4
Thread the fish alternately with the pineapple and bell peppers onto 6 or 8-inch skewers. Season with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle with remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil. You should end up with 6-8 kabobs, depending on the size of your skewers.
Step 5
Place the kabobs on the grill and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until fish is opaque. Brush the skewers with the remaining marinade and cook for 1 more minute. Serve immediately, with any extra marinade on the side for dipping. Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs if desired.
