Oh man, YOU GUYS.

Hawaiian BBQ Skewers with Sriracha Lime Butter | @hbharvest

Are you ready for a little ranting? Cause it’s about to all come running out of me. YIKES.

I am not really sure I should be sharing this info with you or not, but I’m feeling the pain that is the “crunch time” of writing your first ever cookbook. I mean, someone please come and bring me all the chocolate in the world, and maybe like a super stiff drink (wait I don’t drink), or something. I mean the struggle of book writing is real. Right about now all I really want to do is tell you guys all about these chicken skewers… then proceed on to read about celebrity gossip or something completely mind numbing. For real.

Currently, I am sitting at my desk, it’s kind of late night over here, but I have the day’s empty coffee mug, one bottle of empty kombucha (that was really a sad thing when all the kombucha was gone), one glass of water, and a few random scribbles up and down both my arms that are just staring me in the face. Writing these words is actually a super refreshing feeling.

Kind of freeing in a really odd way. It’s just nice to like… rant. You know what I’m saying?

Okok, ranting over. One, I need to tell you guys about these epic Hawaiian BBQ skewers. Two, I need to go run around in circles to release all my pent-up energy. Three, I need to get my butt out of my desk chair…it hurts (sorry, that was kind of like 2).

SO, it’s no secret around here that I adore all things Hawaiian. Pineapple is possibly my very favorite fruit in all the land, so anything with a sweet and spicy Hawaiian BBQ sauce is going to be something I LOVE. These skewers are basically summer on a stick.

Hello pineapple, grilled chicken and bell peppers. SUMMMAH.

And it does not stop there, because I am me, and I love sauces, and butters, and toppings galore. So I added a spicy, sweet, sriracha, lime, honey butter for brushing all over the juicy chicken when it comes off the grill. The butter just melts all over the chicken, mixing with that tangy Hawaiian BBQ sauce. Basically, it’s summertime grilling perfection.

A little dramatic (sorry, this is what happens when I write all day long…I get all slap happy and things just start flying outta my mouth)… but it is all true.

I like to serve these with a big side of white ice…obviously. Me and my rice, I can never have enough. And guys, that’s kind of it. Really fast and simple today, but still full of killer flavor.

AND well, I kind of feel like we all need to make these on Monday for the 4th. I mean, how fun and yummy would some Hawaiian skewers in sriracha lime butter be?!?

Yes, yes, YES. Do it. 🙂

Oh and also, I just have to mention that while I have been making massive amounts of food the last few months, these skewers are the ones that no one in my family can stop asking for. They freaking LOVE these. I cannot blame them though. It’s all about that pineapple… and that sriracha buttahhhh. Nothing beats this combo guys, nothing!

  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped into bite sized chunks

  1. I would love to see something like this made over as a sheet pan supper for the winter months, when you wish you were somewhere tropical.

    1. Hey Heather,
      You could totally make this on a sheet pan as well:) Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

  2. Have not had the opportunity to make any of these recipes but they will be made Labor Day weekend and I leave my comment then because they all look delicious

    Literally one of the best meals we’ve made all summer, and my husband LOVED it! He’s now conspiring to make another batch of the BBQ sauce mixture for a batch of wings. No complaints here!

  4. 5 stars
    So so good! We made it with Trader Joe’s siracha BBQ and it was perfect. My only regret is not making more 😉

    Super yummy recipe! I made it tonight for 3 people with shrimp instead of chicken. A couple of notes about the butter: Four tablespoons makes a LOT of butter. Served at room temperature it wasn’t clear to me how to “brush” it on the skewers in any significant quantity. But the butter is SO GOOD. I can’t even decide if I liked the BBQ mixture or butter better. ANYWAYS, I think next time I would melt the butter (I only made 2 TBS for 3 people) and brush it on the skewers in place of olive oil before grilling (we have a grill mat that prevents it from sticking). It’s so good, I just wish I’d been able to taste it better! Definitely gonna make it again sometime! (And use my leftover sriracha butter on a yummy grilled cheese tomorrow)

    1. Hi Tori! I am so glad this recipe turned out so well for you! Thank you for trying it!! xTieghan

  6. Sooo delish! Made these tonight for a yummy, summer Sunday dinner served over coconut jasmine rice &
    drizzled with the reserved BBQ sauce! Appreciate the variety of your recipes and gorgeous photographs! Thank you!

  7. I would love to make these, but my bf absolutely Hates bell peppers, any suggestions on other veggies to substitute??

    1. Hey Jessica!! Any veggie would be great, but I think zucchini would be awesome or broccoli would be great! Let me know if you questions. Thanks!!

  8. I made these kebabs today for the Fourth of July and they were delicious! The sriracha lime butter was also a big hit, especially on the corn on the cob! I think I will try the kebabs with shrimp too next time.
    Thanks for the great recipes. My family always loves them!

    1. Thank you! Thrilled you loved these and I am sure shrimp will be awesome too! Happy 4th of July! 🙂

  9. These skewers are wonderful. I made them for dinner tonight. Garnished with razor thin sliced fresh jalapeños and chopped cilantro. Definitely a keeper. I will be making these often. Thank you!!!

  10. Hi, I was with you all the way to the pickled jalapeños — then I couldn’t find the link or recipe — would you mind adding that “below” the final photo?? Thanks — these are completely happening on July 4th without or without the jalapeños.

    1. Hey Marina! I am really sorry, the picked jalapeño part is a typo and i have fixed the recipe to read correctly. So sorry about about! Let me know if you have other questions, thanks!

    1. Hey Dave, I am sorry, I am not sure what you are asking? The Sriracha butter is included in the recipe. Can you clarify what you are asking? Thanks!
