Total Time:
25 min
15 min
10 min

4 servings

  • 4 (10-inch) skewers
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 orange, juiced, plus remaining half zested, reserved from Chicken Satay recipe
  • 1 (20-ounce) can pineapple chucks, reserve the juice and 4 pieces for cocktail
  • 2 nectarines, cut into 1-inch chucks
  • 1 mango, peeled, flesh cut into 1-inch chucks
  • 1 (8-ounce) container vanilla yogurt
  • If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes.

  • In a small pot combine the brown sugar with 1/4 cup water, cinnamon and orange zest. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.

  • Preheat the grill or grill pan over low heat.

  • Thread 2 pieces of each type of fruit onto each skewer. Grill the skewers until the fruit is warm and lightly charred about 6 minutes giving the skewers a quarter turn every 1 1/2 minutes. Make sure to brush with the brown sugar syrup after each turn.

  • While the fruit is grilling, make the dipping sauce. Whisk together the yogurt, orange juice, and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar syrup in a serving bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for the Online Round 2 recipe Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps.

  • Arrange the skewers on a serving platter and serve with the dipping sauce on the side.
