BBQ skewers

A list of things I really enjoy would include salty cheese, figs, and anything smothered in hoisin sauce. Add the word grilled to any of the above and I'm in heaven.


Fig & haloumi skewers:
1 pint figs, trimmed and cut in half
1/2 lb haloumi cheese, cubed

Eggplant, tofu & red onion skewers:
3 Japanese eggplant, cut into 1" chunks
1 block super firm tofu, cut into 1" chunks
1 red onion, also cut into large chunks
Hoisin sauce

After we assembled all of the skewers, I cooked them on the hot side of the grill for about 3-4 minutes on each side. The tofu and eggplant skewers got a lathering of Hoisin sauce with each turn. So simple and easy but so ridiculously amazing tasting. While eating these I put the contents of one of the tofu skewers on a warm corn tortilla and topped it with our carrot and cabage slaw, and it was bliss. Follow it up with the fig and haloumi for dessert? Out of this world. They were a total hit with the friends that we had over for dinner. We will definitely be making these again!
