Sometimes it might not seem worth it to fire up the Traeger to cook a weeknight meal for two. But when you can cook it all on the grill (from main course to veggies AND fruit) and have it taste oh so good, you'll wonder why you ever had reservations about flipping that on-switch. These tangy and flavorful steak and shrimp kebabs taste even better than they look. The hearty steak and tender shrimp pair perfectly with the onions and peppers. Add in a sweet and tart bite from the grilled pineapple and the savory flavors of our garlic-lime glaze and you'll be coming back to this dish for a quick two-person meal over and over again.
Steak and Shrimp Kebabs with a Garlic-Lime Glaze
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
Recommended Pellets: Oak, Hickory, Pecan
1 New York Strip Steak, cubed
1/2 lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 red onion, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 can pineapple chunks, drained or 3/4 cup fresh pineapple cut into pieces
Traeger Veggie Shake
For the Garlic-Lime Glaze:
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 clove garlic, pressed
Zest and the juice of 1 lime
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid and turn the temperature settings up to High. Allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes while you prepare your skewers.
Thread the meat, shrimp, vegetables, and pineapples on the skewers in an alternating pattern. If using bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them for a bit before threading to prevent the wood from scorching.
Season liberally with Traeger's Veggie Shake. Place directly on the grill for 5-6 minutes.
While your kebabs are grilling, make the Garlic-Lime Glaze. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to throughly combine.
Brush the Glaze on the kebabs with a basting brush and turn the kebabs over. Cook for an additional 5-6 minutes, or until the shrimp is opaque and the steak is cooked to your liking. Serve immediately.
