I know someone is gonna ask where to get that tank top above, you can get the shirt on redrubble.com

[next 4 food photos below] Chicken Souvlaki Bowls with Garlic Fries (more info further down)

This is normally the point in my annual, springtime “Dressed to Grill” articles where I make some lame statement like….

“Whew…we made it through another winter, spring is here and life is good again”.

But Man!!! This COVID-19 virus of 2020 hit all of us like an avalanche…

….and life just got more serious that having survived the snow and sleet of winter.

Luckily, I’m an optimist, and my grill on my terrace is like my sanctuary in a world of COVID-19 chaos, grilling is such great self therapy….

So, here’s another easy reading, “Dressed to Grill” post of 10 new Kabob recipes I wanna try…

And you know how I do it, HGTV Style, this post is complete with another amazing Outdoor Kitchen on Long Island NY….

..from the baddest grill makers in the land, Kalamazoo Gourmet.


[3 food photos above below and one below] Chicken Souvlaki Bowls with Garlic Fries

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: Great recipe if using organic ingredients, pasture raised chicken, and grass fed dairy. They do their fries in the oven, but you can easy cut them thicker and do them on the grill, an occasion brushing of the potatoes with olive oil and spices sets the fries out.

[below] Rainbow Veggie Skewers

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: No rules, whatever organic veggies you want. Even for meat eaters, organic veggie skewers are amazing once you get your spices right!!! Cook veggie skewers on top of lemon or lime slices so they won’t stick to the grate.

[below] Shrimp Kabobs with Pistachio-Tarragon Pesto

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: Love to see that tried and true Olive Oil in recipes (seems like it’s becoming extinct 🙁 ). For the shrimp, make sure you get wild caught as opposed to farm raised, as wild caught shrimp are surprisingly very low in mercury and toxins compared to farmed.

[below] Chicken Shawarma Naan Salad with Sweet Potato Fries

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: Great recipe if using organic ingredients, pasture raised chicken, and grass fed dairy. You can do sweet potatoes on the grill, really good with the right spices. I’m not a big fan of the Greek Yogurt, so I’ll work around it…..

[below] Mojo Fish Kabobs

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: There are many fish choices that are very low in mercury. Once again, a great grilling tip is to cook fish skewers on top of lemon or lime slices so they won’t stick to the grate.

[below] Swordfish Kabobs

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: I’ll replace that swordfish with sustainably sourced Chilean Sea Bass from Whole Foods, my fav’ thick “steaky” type of fish. Once again, a great grilling tip is to cook fish skewers on top of lemon or lime slices so they won’t stick to the grate.

[below] Lemon Tarragon Scallop Skewers

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: Scallops are such an underrated seafood as pertains to taste,  you gotta try them at least once. Scallops are also very low in mercury. Once again, cook seafood skewers on top of lemon or lime slices so they won’t stick to the grate.

[below] Jerk Chicken Skewers

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: The Walkerswood Jerk Seasoingn in the recipe is actually one of the ones they use quite a bit down in Jamaica, so that is a good choice to get a near authentic Jerk Seasoning. The recipe links to it on Amazon to purchase...

[below] Greek Lamb Souvlaki Plates with Avocado Tzatziki

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: Great recipe, but as mentioned before, I’m not really feeling that Greek Yogurt, I’ll have to experiment with something else to get something similar to a Avocado Tzatziki sauce…..

[below] Moroccan Chicken Skewers

The Healthy Chef’s “Healthy Morsel”: You can use the Kosher salt in the recipe, but also consider Pink Himalayan Salt, with  84 minerals in perfect balance…..

…..about the Outdoor Kitchen

This generous outdoor living space in the Hamptons has a cool and calming grey color palette that perfectly complements the outdoor kitchen’s sophisticated stainless steel appliances and cabinetry. With a large surrounding backyard and tall hedges, the space’s fire pit and expansive deck are exceptionally private.

K750HB Hybrid Fire Grill and also the K750GB Gaucho Grill in the outdoor kitchen offer the homeowners endless cooking possibilities. With the Hybrid Fire Grill, everything from high-heat, gas-only searing to low and slow, wood-smoke infused American barbecue is possible.

The Gaucho Grill is a visually stunning centerpiece with an eye-catching 30-inch spoked wheel that raises and lowers the grilling surface above the wood fire for total temperature control. The Gaucho’s gas starter ensures a more convenient primal cooking experience.

Weather-tight Signature Series storage creates a sleek, timeless look across the whole kitchen while protecting dishes and linens from the elements. Refrigerated drawers, a sink and trash and recycling cabinets allow this outdoor kitchen to be used completely independently of the indoor kitchen. 

With a fully functional outdoor kitchen, the homeowners can entertain effortlessly. Prepping, cooking and cleaning tasks can all be done outdoors with guests. This comfortable, beautiful backyard is the perfect place to host exceptional meals, celebrations and time spent with friends and family.

I’m in no way affiliated with Kalamazoo Gourmet, but plain and simple, they are the masters of the “Art Form” that is Gourmet Grilling. I love their “promo” video below, always sets the right vibe for the summer’s grilling!!! ENJOY!!!

(and remember to try, if but just a little, at making your tasty grill treats a little healthier……..then you got the best of both worlds 🙂 )

One final note: Life is short and uncertain , so “Eat, Pray, and Love”  -Peace


~stay healthy~
