Onion Skewers

Often a problem with using skewers is that the food often rotates when you are trying to turn them. The ideal solution is to use flat skewers. Flat bamboo skewers are available but they are very difficult to track down at a reasonable cost.

A good alternative is to use two pre-soaked skewers and push them through the food parallel to each other about 1 cm apart (see below).
