Summer is here, and there’s no better way to enjoy the season than grilling outdoors. When you’ve got friends and family over for some much needed time on the deck or patio, you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen taking care of complicated food preparation. The answer? Tasty Cajun kabobs that are so quick and easy to make, you can let your grill do the work while you throw back a cold one with the crew.
Our favorite combos this summer pair deep dives into flavorful ingredients unique to Cajun Country with the best sausages and meats from the Best Stop. Take a look at these delicious ideas to throw on the grill, and don’t worry about having to choose just one. You’ve got all summer long to get your grill on.
Cajun Shrimp and Smoked Sausage Kabobs
Create a Cajun version of surf and turf when you grill up these delicious kabobs that pair Louisiana Gulf shrimp with the spicy tang of smoked sausage accompanied by a medley of onions, green bell peppers and cherry tomatoes. Try our jalapeño smoked sausage for an extra kick!
Boudin, Potatoes and Corn Kabobs
Nothing beats meat and potatoes—but you can rev it up a notch with our authentic Cajun boudin mixed with corn ears and red bell peppers for a pop of color. For a surprise in every bite, try combining a few of our different links—available in pork, chicken, shrimp, and crawfish meat.
Catfish and Corn Kabobs
Forget about your fish basket or fancy fish spatula. Cajun-spiced catfish is ideal for a skewer-it-and-forget-it grilling session. Add some corn on the cob and green bell peppers to bring some cool flavors to your plate that pack a crunch. Slide these goodies onto a roll of French bread and dress it with lettuce, mayo and tomato for the easiest po’ boys in town.
Alligator Sausage and Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Kabobs
Go exotic with our farm-raised alligator sausage paired with bacon wrapped asparagus (because bacon makes everything better) and thick cuts of crisp green bell peppers. The flavors meld so beautifully in this summertime favorite, you’ll think you’re taking a bite out of paradise!
Marinated Chicken Wrapped in Bacon with Chicken Boudin and Peppers
This mouth-watering trio is a meat lover’s dream consisting of our marinated chicken, onions, bacon, green bell peppers and chicken boudin. But fair warning, this kabob is flavored to perfection so you better make a few extras, ’cause you won’t have any leftovers.
Light up the Grill
These Cajun kabob recipes make summertime grilling a breeze! Just thread the ingredients on metal skewers, oil up your grill grates and cook them on medium-low (about 300°) flipping them every 2 minutes until the veggies are charred and the meat is cooked through. C’est bon!
