    Made them yesterday and they were delicious. I do think they need just a bit more punch, but I'm not sure what that would be. Maybe bay seasoning, or possibly some peppers and onions on the kabob. Any thoughts?

    HI Pam! Liz suggests you can add more lime juice. I prefer to add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the marinade to bring out the flavors.
    Not sure, but the green peppers and onions sound delicious with this kabob as well.

    Great recipe. Tastes much better on the grill than under the broiler for some reason. Maybe the juices burn off.
