- If using bamboo/wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
- Clean and preheat the grill to medium high heat. When the grill is ready to cook, spray the grates with grill-safe oil.
- In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, spices, lemon juice and kefir. Add chicken or shrimp to the bowl and stir to combine.

- When ready to grill, alternate placing pieces of meat and bell pepper onto the skewers, leaving space between each piece.
