Ingredients

Fig Kebabs

Sherry Marinade

  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped

Citrus Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons orange juice concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

Instructions

  • Trim stems off figs. Combine figs with marinade ingredients in a small saucepan. Cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, slice eggplant into thin wedges, about 1/4-inch thick. Cut pepper and onion into 1 1/2 -inch squares. Remove figs with slotted spoon, reserving marinade and 2 figs. For kebabs, alternate eggplant, onion, pepper and figs on skewers. Set aside and prepare dressing. Dice the 2 reserved figs and combine with 1/4 cup reserved marinade; add to Citrus Dressing. Grill or broil kebabs 5 inches from heat source, brushing with remaining marinade and turning every 3 minutes. Grill for 6 to 10 minutes or until eggplant is soft. Toss 8 cups lettuce with remaining dressing; place on 4 plates. Sprinkle with 2 oz. feta cheese and 1/4 cup pine nuts then top with kebabs.
