  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • cups plain yogurt
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp peeled with tails on
  • 1 pound extra firm tofu sliced into ½-inch thick slices
  • 4 12-inch bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 20 minutes.
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  1. Make the marinade by combining the garlic, ginger, paprika, coriander, cumin. turmeric, salt and cayenne pepper, lime juice, olive oil and yogurt in a bowl.
  2. Marinate the chicken, shrimp and tofu in separate bowls or shallow pans, coating all sides well with the marinade. (The marinade will be quite thick). Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours and remove the pans from the fridge 30 minutes before grilling. Thread the shrimp onto the skewers.
  3. Pre-heat the grill to medium-high heat (350˚F on an electric grill). Grill all the proteins until cooked through and well-marked. The chicken should take roughly 10 minutes per side and is done when it has reached an internal temperature of 165˚F. The tofu will take 5 minutes per side and just needs to be warmed through with nice grill marks. The shrimp will take 2 to 4 minutes per side and will turn an opaque pink when cooked. The timing of all proteins depends on how hot your grill is and whether or not you’re using an outdoor grill or an indoor electric grill. (The electric grill will take a few minutes longer).
  4. Slice the chicken breast into large pieces and arrange on a platter with the tofu and shrimp. Top with torn up fresh cilantro leaves and a squeeze with fresh lime juice.
