Jenny's Caribbean Tuna and Fruit Kabobs

1/2 C lime juice
1 C orange juice
4 Tbl honey
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp cayenne

1 lb. tuna steak, cut into 16 1-inch cubes
1/2 tsp salt
24 1-inch cubes fresh pineapple
2 peeled, pitted mangos, cut into 24 chunks

1. Stir lime juice, orange juice, honey, allspice, thyme, and cayenne together in a small bowl. Marinate the fish in 1 C of the lime juice mixture in the fridge for 1 hour. Reserve remaining marinade.

2. Preheat broiler

3. Remove tuna from marinade and sprinkle with salt. Thread fruit and tuna onto skewers. (Fills approx 8 skewers)

4. Place kebobs on baking sheet coated with cooking spray and brush with reserved marinade. Broil 3 mins. Turn kebobs, brush with reserve marinade, and broil 3-4 more minutes, or until tuna is cooked (flaky and not translucent)

Serve with rice.

Obviously you could also grill these and they would be just as yummy. And that is what they are- yummy! This would also be good with chicken, so in the future we will also make a couple chicken kebobs for our younger and pickier child.
