Grilled Caribbean Skewers
- For the marinade, in a glass measure combine brandy, olive oil, brown sugar, lime juice, mint, garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into a heavy-duty resealable plastic storage bag. Add the turkey, seal the bag, and press the bag to coat the meat in the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours.
- Heat grill. On 8 skewers, thread 4 to 5 pieces of turkey or meat. Grill kebabs over medium-hot heat, 12 to 16 minutes for turkey, or until cooked through; or 10 to 12 minutes for medium-rare beef or lamb (145 degree F). If desired, garnish with lemon wedges and mint sprigs. Makes 8 servings.
