1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds boned and skinned halibut, cut into 2-in. chunks
4 cups 1 1/2-in. cubes crusty bread, such as ciabatta
3 ounces pancetta, sliced paper-thin


1. Heat a grill to medium (350° to 450°).

2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine olive oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Add halibut and bread. Toss to coat, then set aside 5 minutes.

3. Skewer an end of 1 strip pancetta, then alternate fish and bread cubes on a 10-in. metal skewer*, weaving pancetta between them. Repeat 3 times.

4. Grill kebabs, turning frequently, until fish is cooked through and bread is charred in places, about 6 minutes.

*You will need 4 metal skewers for the kebabs.
