Marinate ingredients and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours.
Soak wooden skewers in cold water for at least 30 minutes. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium high heat.
Thread the meat and vegetables onto the skewers. Grill for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat is cooked through. Serve.
*Note The safest way to eat a skewer is by sliding the finished ingredients off into a dish instead of eating straight from a stick. Usually it’s not a problem for adults to eat it straight from the skewer. However, it’s advised that children have their skewer disassembled and placed in a dish for consumption.
