  1. Lime Marinade: Combine all ingredients in food processor. Puree until fine. Set aside.
  2. Saffron Couscous: Coat a medium sauce pan with olive oil and saute the Israeli couscous and white onion over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the Saffron, saute for an additional 2 minutes. Lower the heat and add the white wine. Slowly add the boiling water. Cover and cook for 12 minutes or until couscous is light and fluffy.
  3. Combine olive oil, green, red, & orange peppers. Coat vegetables well and pre-grill for 5-7 minutes.
  4. Assemble skewers; slide one piece al fresco Chipotle Chorizo Chicken Sausage onto skewer, followed by pineapple, green pepper, shrimp, orange pepper, zucchini, and red pepper. Repeat pattern until skewer is full. Marinate in lime marinade, refrigerated for 1 hour.
  5. Grill over a medium high flame, use a pastry brush to baste skewers with any free lime marinade. Grill 5 - 7 minutes per side or until shrimp turn opaque in color.


  • Serving Suggestion: Serve skewers over couscous, garnish with freshly grated lime rind.

Yum! My hubby loves Chorizo and these were a huge hit! I love that you can mix up different veggies according to taste - i served with a quinoa dish and it was perfect.

We really liked this recipe. I changed up the veggies a little to use what I had on hand. Did not care for the couscous as it was very bland. Next time I will try it with rice.

I had a different sausage, chicken but not chorizo or chipotle so I added a chipotle pepper to the marinade. Just did the sausage and veggies, (added mushrooms) didn't make the couscous. Use...

yum! we used the Sweet Italian (couldn't find the Chipotle Chorizo in our store) and it was delicious! The next day we used leftovers in an egg scramble.

Superb!!! This is a great bbq idea-loved it!

I think my favorite part of this recipe is DEFINITELY the marinade. Soooo tasty! The pineapple that I thought I had was a bit...past its expiration I used a mango instead. It was aw...

This recipe was a good one. The kabobs and the marinade were very good. The couscous was so-so and not very flavorful as written. Next time, I would either serve another starch or bump up the...
