WHAT TYPE OF FISH

It is important to have fish that is 1 1/2-inches thick. White Sea Bass, Swordfish, Halibut, and Monkfish hold up on the grill. My thoughts on tuna is that if it over cooks it isn’t so yummy due to dryness!

THIS IS SO FUN!!!

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE PRIMO ROTISSERIE KEBAB KIT

  1. The kit has 6 (15-inch) flat skewers that make lacing food easy.

  2. The components of the kit are made of stainless steel.

  3. The skewers, and the circular holder, and the spit rod are dishwasher safe.

  4. I love that I can grill veggies, meat, and fish to perfection over an open flame now. My other rotisserie is over a propane burner.

  5. If you cut veggies and fish in a consistent size they will evenly cook due to the rotation of the rotisserie.

  6. The metal skewer is sturdy, reusable, and doesn’t need to soak like bamboo skewers do! YaY!

  7. The flat shape of the skewer keeps food on securely throughout the entire cook. The skewer has handles on one side making them easy to use.

A FEW REASONS I LOVE MY PRIMO CERAMIC GRILL

I can create a true two-zone direct and indirect simultaneous cooking with the fire box divider and deflector plates.

I love the flavor of the gently smoke that Primo’s Primo's Natural Lump Charcoal creates even without smoking wood chunks.

MY THOUGHTS ON THE PRIMO ROTISSERIE KIT FOR OVAL XL 400 GRILLS

Primo Rotisserie Kit for my Oval XL 400 has opened a new grilling playground for me. The motor for the rotisserie is the quietest I have heard! The latest rotisserie accessories expand the playing field even more.

The rotisserie frame is easy to mount to the grill. Build hot embers and presto you have a lump charcoal or a wood-fired rotisserie ready to go!

There will be smoke drifting from where the lid closes when the rotisserie frame is mounted. I adjust for this by closing the top and bottom vent a little more than usual to regulate my grill’s temp.

The first time I used the rotisserie, the spit rod partially jiggled out of the motor mount. The slight movement caused the rod to stop the circular motion. Hubby is an engineer and quickly stood a brick barely touching the rotisserie handle, located at the opposite end of the motor. We have used the brick ever since and do not wonder if the spit rod is going to “walk” out of the motor.

Overall, the Primo Rotisserie is absolutely a wonderful way to cook in your Primo Ceramic Grill. The rotisserie kit features stainless steel components for a heavy-duty design, allowing for many years of slow-roasted meals.

I can honestly say every dish I have made with the Primo’s rotisserie and the attachments (kebab holder, wings basket, and the 3-sided basket) have turned out moist and scrumptiously delish.


Fish has been thread on to flat skewer sticks and placed onto a holder.
The flat skewers make it easy to slice fish, shrimp and veggies.

TO MAKE THIS RECIPE SUCCESSFULLY

Make sure to keep the fish icy cold before threading onto the skewer. I do this by setting a baggie of ice on top of the bowl of the fish after it has been in the marination.

You can thread the fish, peaches, onion, and peppers onto the skewers and refrigerate while the grill is coming to desired temperature.

YIELD

You can adjust the quantity of kebabs cooked with how many you are feeding and what size of appetite your diners have.

Aim at 1 1/2 kebabs per person. The Primo Grill Rotisserie Skewer Kit holds 6 kebab skewers so at 1 1/2 kebabs per person you can serve 4 diners with hefty appetites.

This dish can easily serve 6 people when served with garlic bread, Alfredo pasta, and a salad.

FAQ

How can you tell if fish is fresh?

I ask the person selling the fish when the fish arrived at the store.I select fish that has arrived fresh that morning or the day before. The fish should not smell fishy nor have a slimy film.

Can canned peaches be used?

I highly suggest fresh or frozen. Canned peaches need to be chilled if used so they don’t soften too much. When using frozen peaches, only thaw the peaches just enough to lace them on the skewer.

What other summertime fruit works?

Plums (cut into half), nectarines (cut into 1-inch thick slices), and Pluots (cut into quarters). Campari Tomatoes work well too!


WHAT CAN BE MADE WITH LEFTOVERS?

Tacos, tacos, tacos! Or buy the prepared tostada shells! Either a fish taco or a tostada will taste delicious with a layer of creamy guacamole, grilled fish and chopped peaches and peppers. Drizzle salsa verde on top or sour cream that has been thinned.

I served the fish tostadas cold so the fish did not dry out. So delicious on a summer day. If cold fish is not your thing then heat only the fish in the microwave, at half power, for 15 seconds.

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

To Prepare Marinate: In a blender, combine avocado oil, rice vinegar, ginger, cilantro, sesame seed oil, soy sauce, orange juice, lime juice, agave syrup, fish sauce, citrus zest, tomatillos, Serrano pepper, and Primo Summer Peach Seasoning & Dry Rub, and puree until smooth with speckles.

Cut fish into 1 1/2-inch chunks. Place fish chunks and shrimp into marinade, and refrigerate for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare green peppers, green onions, Serrano pepper in equal sizes. Right before preparing the skewers, partially thaw the peaches for 10 minutes.

After marinating the fish and shrimp, thread the fish and vegetables on the skewers.

Sprinkle with a little extra Primo Summer Peach Seasoning.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Fill the grill half-way with Primo lump charcoal.

Mount the Primo Rotisserie Grill frame. Set up the motor and plug it into an electrical socket.

Preheat Primo to 300°F to 325°F degrees.

When gray smoke has turned into blue smoke, and the desired temperature has been reached, it’s grilling time.

Insert the fish skewers into the kebab holders. Secure the kebab holder onto the spit rod by tightening the screws.

Insert the kebab holder on the spit rod into the Primo Rotisserie motor, and turn the motor on. Close the grill’s lid.

Smoke the kebabs for 10 minutes with the motor running the entire time. During the last two minutes of grilling open up the vents to increase the high heat. The internal temperature at the fish at this point should be around 120°F.

Continue to rotisserie grill, with the grill lid open, over extremely hot embers, until the fish reaches 125°F and the shrimp is 120°F degrees. Allow the fish to get slightly charred or remove the kebab holder once the fish and shrimp reach the temperatures above. Remove the kebab holder with grill gloves.
