Spicy kebabs

Meat on stick! What’s not to love about chunks of marinated meat grilled on a bbq? Absolutely nothing~ ^o^

I never really have a recipe when I marinate my meat, usually it depends on whether I feel like something more Asian (lemongrass, sesame oil, soy sauce combination) or something different.

I looked in my fridge and saw limes, cilantro and I thought that would make a good marinade with some other spices; why not? I did this once before with more or less the same spices (without the cilantro) and it tasted good; so I took some pictures and wrote down what I used so if it worked out, I will post the recipe.

It turned out pretty good. I asked my biggest critic (Meep) and he said it was post worthy. =) So try it out, it is easy and pretty tasty~
