Turkey Skewers For The Summer

Matthew Baron Recipes

As a Nutritionist as well as a Churrasco Chef, I advise you to eat lighter after the holidays. Studies have found that eating excessive amounts of meat can make you sweat more often. Not a good look for the dog days of summer. So eat lighter meals and save the meat for the BBQ events that you are sure to have.

You can continue enjoying your skewers to cook outdoors but avoid the supermarket sauces. Opt instead for making your own homemade sauces. Then use them for white meats during the summer as much as possible.

Turkey On The Skewer, turkey skewers

Poultry is a very good choice. Healthy and very tasty. Anything that is cooked in skewer will be delicious. Remember that everything that is not beef must be well done, to avoid the chance of disease in the food.

For those who can not live without a good pork chop, I advise you to try the turkey chops. They are especially delicious on a skewer. You can macerate them like beef or pork. The turkey absorbs well the flavors around it and can be a very juicy meat when cooked right. Now, it is very hot in front of a barbecue while giving turns to our skewers. It can dehydrate us. So while you make your meats and vegetables try to drink a lot of water. Also, wet your head and neck to avoid a sunstroke while at the outdoor grill. Only water can quench the thirst. Our churrasco kits can be used outdoor and indoor if the heat and sun becomes too much.

Now I gonna give you a easy recipe with Turkey breast and veggies:

1 Large turkey breast chopped
1 Onion
Cherry tomatoes
1 Zucchini
1 Yellow pepper
Extra virgin olive oil
Ground pepper

Instructions For Your Turkey Skewers:

Chop the turkey breast into chunks. Cut the onion into slices and the zucchini into slices or half moons. Open the cherries in half and the peppers in strips. Alternate on the skewers a piece of meat, zucchini, onion, cherry, and pepper. When we have the turkey skewers mounted, add salt and pepper. Put the skewer on your churrasco and enjoy.
