BBQ Japanese Meat Skewers

Our BBQ Japanese Meat Skewers are inspired by Japanese yakitori (yakitori literally means grilled chicken). We just love the strong marinade flavours. Cook these on the barbie before the big game to seriously impress your guests!

  1. Make the marinade. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Reserve half the marinade for grilling, then spoon the other half into 3 large resealable bags.
  2. Pop prawns, chicken and lamb each into the bags, move around in the marinade, then seal and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat BBQ to 200C.
  4. Thread the prawns, chicken and lamb onto skewers..
  5. Grill the skewers on the BBQ for 5-10 minutes, basting with the remaining marinade, and turning halfway. The prawns may cook quicker. When cooked to your liking, remove from grill , garnish with garlic chives, toasted sesame seeds and spring onions.
