Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat the grill or grill pan over low heat.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Arrange the skewers on a serving platter and serve with the dipping sauce on the side.
