Spicy Grilled Shrimp and Scallop Kabobs

This recipe is perfect for seafood lovers who are allergic to dairy products.
  • 3/4 lb. sea scallops, rinsed well
  • 1 lb. large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • 1 T. soy sauce
  • 1 T. peanut oil
  • 2 tsp. Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

In a large bowl combine brown sugar, soy sauce, vegetable oil, five-spice powder and pepper. Add shrimp and scallops, tossing to coat. Marinate 15 to 30 minutes.

Alternately thread shrimp and scallops onto six long metal skewers. Place skewers on grill over medium heat; cook 10 to 12 minutes until shrimp and scallops turn opaque throughout. (Turn skewers occasionally and brush shrimp and scallops with any remaining marinade halfway through cooking.)

  • Yields: 6 servings
  • Preparation Time: 30 to 45 minutes, depending on marinating time
