Halibut Kebabs with Grilled Bread and Pancetta

We couldn't believe how outrageously yummy these halibut skewers are. Crusty Italian bread and halibut are seasoned with fresh rosemary, then woven with pancetta and grilled until golden.

Sunset JANUARY 2014

  • Yield: Serves 4
  • Total: 30 Minutes


  • 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.
