I have a delicious and killer easy dinner for you today!! If you are having a hard time getting away from the oppressive heat and humidity like we are, this is the perfect meal you. Grilling out is one of the pleasures of Summer!! Sometimes though it’s just too darn hot outside to do anything!!!
That’s where a great marinade, some ham and fresh pineapple come to the rescue! These kabobs have all the flavor of grilled meat without standing outside sweating and melting in the heat. ¬†Sometimes a marinade will cause the grill to flame up when the sugars drip and you have to watch your meat closely so it doesn’t burn.
These beauties are baked in the oven taking away all that danger. ¬†I love the flavor combination of ham and pineapple. ¬†I am a sucker for Hawaiian Pizza. ¬†Some foods have that great way of reminding you of places and vacations. ¬†If you have ever been to Hawaii or any other tropical local then the taste of this will certainly transport you back to those happy memories.
The marinade has all the best of the Pan-Asian flavors. ¬†Pineapple, honey, soy, sesame oil just to name a few. The best accompaniment is coconut rice. ¬†So creamy and good!!!
No salt is needed and make sure that you use a low sodium soy sauce. ¬†Ham is cured in salt and you really don’t want to add anymore to the recipe. ¬†You can use canned pineapple but really why would you? ¬†It’s summer get the fresh stuff!!
So when you are in a Luau party kind of mood but it’s too hot outside or it’s the middle of winter and your grill is under 3 feet of snow. ¬†Throw this together and party down!!!
