Expert Tips

Paired with healthy veggies, this seafood on a stick is backyard kabob grilling at its best.

Leaving a little space between the shrimp, scallops and vegetables will help your kabobs cook more evenly.

The exact heat of the grill or coals, as well as the outside temperature and wind, can affect your grilling time. Keep a close eye on those kabobs--they may be done before you know it!

Directions

  • 1 Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.
  • 2 Mix lemon juice, oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Cut scallops in half if over 1 inch in diameter.
  • 3 Thread scallops, shrimp, mushrooms, tomatoes and zucchini alternately on each of four 10-inch metal skewers. Brush with lemon juice mixture.
  • 4 Grill uncovered 4 inches from medium heat 10 to 15 minutes, brushing frequently with lemon juice mixture and turning once, until scallops are white and shrimp are pink and firm. Discard any remaining lemon juice mixture.
