Firecracker Sausage Kebab - July 4th Recipe

Hi Everyone, Hope you had a great Father’s Day yesterday and I’m back with these fabulous Firecracker Sausage Kebab (also called Firecracker Sausage Skewers) recipe that’s perfect for your upcoming July 4th BBQ parties.

Since the beginning of June, we have been attending so many BBQ’s and the next one is at our place.

So I decided to make these Firecracker kebabs which has this sweet-spicy taste along with beautifully grilled vegetables and sausages. 

What is a Firecracker Sausage Kebab?

They are these delicious kebabs made using sausage, veggies like bell pepper (capsicum), onion, tomatoes, zucchini and a sweet-spicy firecracker sauce.

Now, have you heard of ‘Firecracker’ sauce or recipe? It’s basically a combination of sweet-spicy flavor and usually made with a peppery sauce as background.

However, I like to twist the recipe a little and use my favorite ‘Kikkoman® Soy and Kikkoman®Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce’ in it.

KikkomanUSA® is not just Asian sauces and marinades – it’s more mainstream and versatile, perfect for summer holiday grilling occasions and day-to-day grilling recipes for weeknights.

Hence, I always have their sauces and marinades in my kitchen pantry for quick – flavorful meals.

Now, I’m making a big batch of these Firecracker Sausage Kebabs.

I needed a little extra sauce, so decided to make a quick trip to our local Walmart to buy all the recipe ingredients along with July 4th decorations.


Seriously, nothing like an easy recipe where all the ingredients are found under one roof.

The sauce is available in the Asian aisle and rest of the recipe ingredients were available in fresh produce and sausage in the meat section.

How to Make Firecracker Sausage Kebab

It’s so simple to make and no lengthy steps are involved, however, for further convenience:

 I’m dividing the Process into 3 main steps:

  1. First: we prepare the marinade (mix all the ingredients at once).
  2. Second: Place marinade, veggies, sausage in a container/bag and refrigerate for 15 mins.
  3. Third:  simply assembling the kebabs in a skewer and grilling over medium heat for 10 mins. That’s it 🙂 our kebabs are done and ready to Serve.
