Tasting Tuesday: Honey Sesame Sriracha Shish Kabobs (in collaboration with Imperfect Produce)

Hi, friends,

I’ve decided to make the most of today’s high of 88 degrees and prepare a meal that’s full of summer flavors. Husband has been working night shifts this month, so my schedule has been a bit off. We’ve been eating lunch around 3pm when he wakes up and then prepping an even later dinner before he leaves at 10pm. I’m being very nice and quiet today while he is sleeping and I’ve been catching up on some laundry and fridge cleaning (it’s my fall break, so I’m trying to find that perfect combination of being both rested and productive).

You may remember that I wrote about Imperfect Produce a couple weeks ago. Husband and I have really been enjoying getting our boxes of fruit and veggies delivered to our door and I’ve even had extra to send home with friends. We’ve been loving it so much that Imperfect Produce reached out to my blog and offered to send me even MORE fresh goodness. So, of course, I accepted, and now I’m making all these fun recipes. One of the nice things about Imperfect Produce (besides reducing food waste and helping you eat your veggies) is their blog and weekly email with recipe ideas. They also have an option at check-out to have a new recipe card included in your box, which is how I got today’s recipe. I already got an email about a chocolate zucchini cake for next week, which I think is going to become a “must” on my “to do” list.

I am currently marinating my kabobs and thought I would share the goodness with you. I love kabobs because they are so flexible. You can make a mash-up of really any veggies you have around the house and the final product ends up tasting delicious. I was lucky to have most of the glaze ingredients already, but glazes can also take quite a few creative alterations while still turning out all right.

So, here’s what you need for these awesome kabobs, recipe courtesy of Imperfect Produce, originally created by A Cook’s Canvas.

Spicy Honey Sesame Sriracha Glaze

  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 4 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 tsp Sriracha chili sauce
  • Garnish with sesame seeds (optional)


  • 2 zucchini, cut into 1” slices
  • 2 large red onions, cut into 1” slices
  • 1 yellow summer squash, cut into 1” slices
  • 2 green bell peppers, cut into 1” slices
  • 8 oz of baby portabella mushrooms
  • 12 cherry or plum tomatoes

Spicy Honey Sesame Sriracha Glaze

  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together all ingredients until combined.
  2. Bring the glaze to a gentle simmer on low heat, stir often until the glaze has reduced by half.
  3. Set aside to cool before basting.


  1. Thread zucchini, squash, green peppers, red onions, and tomatoes onto skewers in that precise order. Alternate mushrooms or tomatoes on the ends of the skewers (they benefit from the extra heat!).
  2. Brush generously with the honey sesame Sriracha glaze and place on a hot grill, turning occasionally and basting with more glaze until reaching the desired level of doneness.

So there you go! So easy! I’m sure Husband will love them as soon as he wakes up. Have you checked to see if Imperfect Produce delivers in your area? You can get $10 off your first order through using my link here. Let me know if you love it as much as we do!
