Recipe Tags:   Hot   Vegetarian  Fruit  Spices  Alcohol   Barbecue   Dessert  Eggless



2 firm Bananas, peeled

1 small Pineapple, peeled & cored

2 Pears, peeled and cored

2 Firm Nectarines, stoned

2 Oranges, peeled

12 Strawberries, hulled

The Juice of 2 Lemons

100g/4oz Caster sugar
4 tbsp Cointreau
4 tbsp White Wine
1 small uncut White Loaf of Bread
150g/5oz Melted Butter

1. Cut all the fruit into 2.5cm/1 inch square cubes. Unless the strawberries are very large, leave them whole. Each banana can just be cut into 4 pieces.

3. Remove the crusts from the bread and cut into 2.5cm/1 inch square cubes and brush liberally with the melted butter. Toss in the remaining sugar to coat on all sides.

4. Remove the fruit from the bowl, reserving the marinade. Thread the bread and fruit onto 4 skewers, ensuring each skewer has a selection of the different fruit.


5. Cook over medium coals for 5-8 minutes, turning from time to time and sprinkling with extra caster sugar, until browned and caramelised.


6. To serve - sprinkle each kebab with the remaining marinade and serve immediately.
