Fresno chiles add a fiery finish to these kebabs. If you can't handle the heat, use only one chile and three baby red bell peppers in their place instead.


Fresno chile

4 medium, cored, seeded, and quartered

Reduced-sugar apricot jam

2 tbsp(s)

Apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp(s)

Uncooked scallions

1 medium, trimmed and coarsely chopped

Vegetable oil

2 tsp(s)

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Black pepper

¼ pinch(es)

Uncooked halibut fillet

1¼ pound(s), cut 1-inch thick


6 large, caps

Bell pepper

1 cup(s)

Cooked long grain brown rice

2 cup(s)


2 cup(s)


  1. To prepare sauce, combine chiles, jam, vinegar, scallion, water, oil, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Blend until finely minced and frothy. Pour into bowl and set aside.
  2. To prepare kebabs, preheat grill. Trim skin and bones from halibut. Cut steak into 12 chunks. Cut each mushroom lengthwise in half. Core and seed pepper; cut into 12 pieces.
  3. For each of 4 kebabs, arrange ingredients onto skewers in the following order: pepper, fish, mushroom. Repeat so each kebab has 3 pieces of each item. Brush with sauce.
  4. Grill kebabs 3 to 5 minutes; turn and cook 2 to 3 minutes more, basting once. Serve on bed of rice with remaining sauce on side. Yields 1 kebab and 1/2 cup rice per serving.
