  3. After cooking, transfer to a serving platter and let rest for 3 minutes before serving.
  • Grill Method: Preheat over medium high heat and grill skewers 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through.
  • Oven Method: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place the skewers on a baking sheet lined with a wire rack. Bake for 15 minutes, then broil for a couple more minutes.
  • Stovetop Method: Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook skewers 6-8 minutes per side.
