Shish Kabob Tips

What are the best skewers for shish ka bob so that the food doesn't start to spin when you rotate the skewer? I have the large kabob baskets that have a lid, so all you do is turn the basket over, but cleaning all of those spaces between the metal bars is a pain. Opinions?

Thanks,
Holly from Richardson, TX

We have used bamboo and metal. The trick is to put TWO skewers through the chunks and they do not spin.

Tina G said it well. It's just what we do down here. I buy bamboo skewers by the 100 pack, soak them and insert 2 through what ever I'm cooking. Works great with shrimp and scallops.... (04/19/2007)

You can put the basket in a small trash bag with ammonia. Close the bag and leave outside overnight. Easy clean up the next day. (04/20/2007)

I made an investment in metal kabobs. No need to replace, no spinning (they aren't round). Because they are metal: they don't burn, splinter, break and no need to soak. Saves money, and the environment. (04/22/2007)

I soak my basket in hot suds and than use a brillo pad. (04/23/2007)

Things won't usually stick if you spray the basket all over lightly with cooking spray or wipe with a light coating of cooking oil (Don't use olive oil or butter because they get hotter than other oils. I use canola). I lightly coat everything with oil and everything is so much easier to clean.

P.S. The feedbacks about using soaked bamboo or metal skewers and using two so they don't roll are good ones.
