This was a unanimous favourite in our test kitchen. If you’ve never tried Paneer, you’ll be surprised at its mellow character – it has a soft texture and absorbs the flavour of the marinade.

Ingredients

1/2 cup (125 mL) marinated grilled bell peppers
1/4 cup (60 mL) basil pesto, homemade or store-bought
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 lb (450 g) turkey or chicken breasts, cut into 1½˝ (4 cm) cubes
8 oz (225 g) Canadian Paneer, cut into 1˝ (2.5 cm) cubes
1/4 cup (60 mL) cilantro, chopped

Homemade pesto:
2 tbsp (30 mL) pine nuts
1 or 2 cloves garlic
2 cups (500 mL) fresh basil leaves
2 tbsp (30 mL) grated Canadian Parmesan
2–3 tbsp (30–45 mL) olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C) or barbecue to medium-high heat.

In a food processor, process grilled peppers with pesto. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Thread about 5 cubes of turkey with 2 cubes of Paneer onto each skewer.

Brush brochettes generously with grilled pepper-pesto mixture and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour and up to one day before cooking.

Cook in the oven or on the barbecue for 15–20 minutes, turning at least once. The turkey must be completely cooked through and the cheese golden brown. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with vegetables or a salad.
 

Homemade pesto

 
Place pine nuts in a skillet and toast on medium heat, stirring frequently. Let cool.

With a food processor, chop garlic with pine nuts.

Add basil and Parmesan. Process until everything is finely chopped.

With the machine running, gradually add oil through the top.

Season to taste and transfer to a jar. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Tips

If using wood or bamboo skewers, soak in cold water for 30 minutes before using to keep them from burning on the grill.

Cheese alternatives: Canadian Halloumi, Queso Fresco.
