Island-Spiced Ham Skewers
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line an extra-large baking sheet with foil; lightly coat foil with cooking spray. Set aside.Advertisement
In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, thyme, ground coffee, paprika, allspice, garlic powder and, if desired, cayenne pepper.
Trim fat from ham; cut ham into 1 1/2-inch pieces (about 1/2 ounce each). On twelve 12-inch metal skewers, alternately thread ham, sweet peppers, zucchini and onion. Add an orange piece to the end of each skewer. Place skewers on the prepared baking sheet; carefully sprinkle with about half of the brown sugar mixture. Turn and sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar mixture.
Roast skewers about 24 minutes or until zucchini and onion are crisp-tender, carefully turning once halfway through roasting time. To serve, sprinkle with cilantro.
Variation: For a gas or charcoal grill, place skewers on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 12 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, turning once and sprinkling with remaining brown sugar mixture halfway through grilling time.
