1. In a bowl, combine the lime juice, lime zest, soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, turmeric, coriander, cumin and black pepper and stir to combine. In a shallow baking dish, arrange the beef cubes and cover with the marinade. Turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours.
2. Using 16 metal skewers, or soaked wooden skewers, thread the beef, bell peppers, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and pineapple in alternating rows.
3. Lightly spray a grill pan with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Grill the beef kebabs for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until seared and cooked through. Garnish with the scallions and sesame seeds, if desired.
