Halibut Pesto Kabobs are easily one of my favorite healthy recipes that everyone in our family enjoys.

Right now, our garden is overgrown with fresh basil and cherry tomatoes, so I came up with this recipe trying to use what we have on hand. I always think one of the greatest gifts you can give your child is a garden, even if it’s a little pots of herbs on the window sill. Having the experience of planting seeds and watching them grow into an herb, fruit or vegetable is just an amazing process for kids to be a part of. It’s one way that they can truly appreciate and feel connected to the food they eat as well as learn about the world around them.

For this recipe, the kids and I loved going out into the garden to pick our ingredients, rolling into the kitchen to whip up the pesto, skewering the fish and peppers onto the kebobs and then heading out to the grill to cook up this delicious summertime entree. Halibut is a great mild fish that kids will love.

This is a great recipe for an outdoor BBQ or party. Halibut Pesto Kabobs are perfect for grilling and super healthy! Pair them was some Perfect Brown Rice or even Brown Rice Cakes and everyone will be happy.

Don’t forget the pesto! You can get some great pesto at the grocery of course, but it’s really easy to make at home too. We’ve been loving this nut free Hemp Seed Pesto. Or you can make a more traditional Basil Pesto

If fish isn’t your favorite, this recipe is great with chicken, shrimp or even tofu! You can customize it to make it your own with your favorite veggies. The options are endless! Tag me on social media if you make this one! I love seeing your creations.

  5. Can you use scallops instead of the halibut? If so, how would that change the cooking time? Thanks!
