I am always looking for fun new grilled dinners. I love playing with skewers, too. There is something about having your food on a stick that instantly makes it more fun and seemingly exotic. This dish is both of those things.
I’ve been wanting to make a chimichurri sauce for awhile now. I’ve seen Rachael Ray make them several times on her shows. Whether it was drizzled over steak or chicken, it always looked insanely good. I had yet to see this sauce drizzled over fish though, until I was watching Melissa d’Arabian make this meal on her show Ten Dollar Dinners.
From the marinade, to the skewer ingredients, to the chimichurri sauce (I dare you to say chimichurri ten times fast) this dish is easy, affordable, and so aromatic. As Josh commented while we were washing the few dishes that it took to make this meal, this dish tastes exactly the way you think it’s going to taste after you smell it. It’s hard to describe specifically, but suffice to say, smelling the dish is a lot like tasting the dish.
I can’t promise this is going to be a dish your kids are going to love. Surprisingly, mine did. My girls are pretty good about trying new things at least once. They happened to adore this dinner. Eden was practically drinking the sauce and begging for more fish and Grace helped herself to seconds and maybe even thirds. By the end of the meal, all the food was gone except for a little bit of rice, which I will say complimented this dish really well. So if you’re looking for an easy dish that tastes like something you might order on an island paradise vacation, try this!
