Chili and Lime Fruit Kebabs


Watermelon and Pineapple are in season and these savory and spicy Chili and Lime Fruit Kebabs are a great way to enjoy them. 

I love all things savory, so adding some chili, salt and lime to my fruit is not unusual for me.   I love how wonderful these kebabs turned out and I could not stop eating the fruit when I was making them.  I almost didn't have enough pineapple and watermelon to skewer for my kebabs. 

I am really trying to take advantage of all the fruits and vegetables that are available to us this summer, so look out for more fun veggie/fruit delights to come your way on the blog. 

I highly recommend you make these fruit kebabs last minute and serve immediately for best results.  The watermelon will release a lot of water if you marinate it with the salt and lime juice for too long.  Of course you can refrigerate any leftovers, but I personally don't like pineapple right out of the fridge and I also do not like the texture of watermelon after being refrigerated too long.  Fresh is best in my book when it comes to fruit.

Chili and Lime Fruit Kebabs
 Recipe by Ramona from Kitchen Simmer

1 pineapple cleaned and cut into large chunks
1/2 a medium size watermelon cut into chunks

Chili Lime Sauce:
4 Tbs fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp salt (more to taste)
Korean Chili flakes (or cayenne) to taste 


Step 1:  Clean fruit and cut into large chunks

Step 2:  Mix chili lime sauce and toss with fruit chunks. Allow fruit to sit in marinate for 5 minutes.

Step 3:  Place marinated fruit on skewers to make kebabs or serve with toothpicks.  Eat immediately for best results.  Leftover kebabs can be put into fridge, but the juice from the pineapple and watermelon will render out.
