Soaking the skewers in water prevents them from catching fire during grilling. If you have metal skewers, use those instead.
1. Soak skewers in water 30 minutes. Cut each fillet into 1-inch pieces, and thread onto skewers. Place kabobs in a shallow dish.
2. Stir together dressing and next 4 ingredients. Pour over kabobs; add fresh herb sprigs, if desired. Cover and chill 30 minutes.
3. Preheat grill to 400° to 500° (high). Remove kabobs from marinade; discard marinade. Grill kabobs, covered with grill lid, 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
