August 31st, 2018 | main dishes

Grill skewers with little meat, but with lots of vegetables and flavor! Here, the little Spanish peppers play the first violin. The sweetness of the peach softens the pepper sharpness a little bit. The aroma of the bay leaves gives these midsummer BBQ skewers the ultimate kick. Simply delicious.
