Tropical Salad And Sweet Cumin Glazed Steak Skewers

The toasty cumin glaze on these steak skewers is the perfect pairing with this sweet and juicy salad.

20 ounces sirloin steak, cut into large cubes
4 large skewers
1 ½ tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon agave
Juice of one lime
Salt and pepper

2 Hawaii papayas, fruit removed and cut into cubes
1 mango, fruit removed and cut into cubes
2 Asian pears, diced
2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
Juice and zest of one orange
Juice and zest of one lime
Sprinkle of salt
4-6 cups chopped butter lettuce


1. In a small bowl whisk together the cumin, olive oil, agave, lime and a small amount of salt and pepper. Place the steak cubes in a sealable storage bag and poor the glaze over the top. Seal the bag and massage the glaze on the steak. Let marinate 20 minutes before skewering the steak and grilling on medium high for 3-4 min per side.
2. In a large bowl combine all of the salad ingredients, except for the lettuce. Toss gently to combine. Serve over the butter lettuce.
