Curried Squash Kebabs

These squash kebabs are great for a light asian inspired lunch or dinner. There’s a coconut milk sauce with fish sauce and cilantro to top it off.

Squash or pumpkin? I was a a bit confused on how to name this tasty orange fruit. I did some research and apparently botanically squash is the right term. However in different countries pumkin is used for certain types of squash. I decided this is too confusiong for me. So I’m going to use the term squash for this recipe. Probably if I make a squash pie one day, I’ll name it pumpkin pie since we hear this more often. Luckily Slovenians only have one word for squash and pumpkin – buča.

Why not make squash more fun. And what’s more fun than kebabs? Add a little asian spices and a fishy coconut milk sauce and you’re on fire! I am using my Hot Curry Spice Blend in this recipe. You can find the recipe here.
