Grilled Radish Skewers with Herb Butter

Grilled Radish Skewers with Herb Butter


  • 16 radishes, washed and trimmed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Place the raw radishes in a microwave safe bowl and add 1 cup of water.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes.
  3. Test a radish to see if you can get a skewer through it easily.  If not, microwave another 3 minutes or until tender, but not mushy.
  4. Drain and cool the radishes.
  5. When ready to grill, heat the grill to about 450 degrees.
  6. Skewer the radishes, 4 per skewer (If using bamboo skewers be sure to soak them in water for 20 minutes first so they don’t burn)
  7. Combine the melted butter, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  8. Brush the radishes with the melted butter mixture.
  9. Grill for about 2 minutes per side, or until desired doneness is reached.
  10. Remove from the grill and baste with the remaining melted butter before serving.
  11. Enjoy!!
