  • Make sure your grill is clean and well oiled to avoid the skewers from sticking to the grill, then preheat your grill to 350F.
  • Trim any excess fat and long arteries from the top part of the chicken hearts, if present.
  • Add the clean hearts to a bowl, and season them with the sal grosso style rock salt. Stir and assemble them on skewers.
  • Then, place the skewers on the hot grill over direct heat and grill for about 5-10 mins, turning them halfway through to make sure they seal evenly on both sides.
  • After sealing them, move the skewers away from the flames into indirect heat for them to finish cooking another 15-20 mins, depending on the size of your hearts.

Bom Apetite!!
