NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 24 ripe medium strawberries, hulled (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed mint leaves, torn
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
Directions
  • Special equipment: eight 10-inch wooden skewers, soaked in water at least 15 minutes

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high and scrape it clean with a grill brush.

  • While the grill preheats, thread the strawberries onto the skewers, piercing each strawberry with 2 skewers and making a total of 4 kebabs with 6 strawberries on each (double-skewering the strawberries will make them easier to turn). In a cup, combine the oil and 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup. Brush the syrup mixture over the strawberries.

  • In a small bowl, combine the mint, lemon zest and juice and remaining 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.

  • Grill the strawberries until they are softened and have grill marks, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve the strawberries drizzled with the lemon-mint sauce.
