Grilled Strawberry Kebabs

500 g/1 lb strawberries, halved
1/4 cup/60 ml/2 fl oz balsamic vinegar
1 ½ cups/220 g/7 oz confectioners sugar
vanilla ice cream


  1. Preheat barbecue to a high heat.
  2. Thread strawberries onto lightly oiled wooden skewers. Brush strawberries with vinegar, then roll in icing sugar.
  3. Cook kebabs on oiled barbecue grill for 10 seconds each side or until icing sugar caramelizes. Serve immediately with ice cream.


Remember to soak bamboo or wooden skewers in water before using; this helps to prevent them from burning during cooking. Before threading food onto skewers, lightly oil them so that the cooked food is easy to remove. For this recipe, use a light-tasting oil such as canola or sunflower.
