Polynesian cuisine features flavors like coconut milk and pineapple, as well as Asian flavors like soy sauce. These easy kabobs blend the best of those with marinated goose breasts, fresh pineapple, and Spam. Why Spam? Because the tasty tinned meat might as well be the national food of Hawaii. Since it was first introduced during World War II, Hawaiians have embraced Spam in all sorts of dishes. 

These kabobs are a tasty way to prepare goose breast as an appetizer or a main course.

This recipe marinates the goose breast in a blend of coconut milk, soy sauce, hot sauce, garlic, and lime juice. Once the meat has marinated, simply alternate it on wooden skewers with chunks of fresh pineapple and cubes of Spam. The result is a sweet and salty blend that works well with any waterfowl. 

Take care not to overcook the goose breast.

Grill the skewers until the goose breast reaches about 130-135 or medium-rare. Take care not to overcook the goose, or the flavor will suffer.
