BEST Grilled Shrimp and Scallops Kabobs:
  • 30 Large Shrimps, peeled and deveined -(you can use frozen)
  • 30 Sea Scallops
  • 1/2 cup of Smart Butter or Olive Oil
  • 6 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 6 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. fresh black pepper
  • 5 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce ( Lea & Perrins)
  • wooden 8" kabob sticks 

Soak wooden kabob sticks in water for one hour.  Remove, let dry.
Place shrimp and scallops in a reusable plastic bag, then insert into another plastic bag to prevent leakage.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the butter is melted.

Stir and set aside about 1/3 of the juice for basting.
Pour the remaining marinade over the shrimp and scallops.
Seal bag and refrigerate for one hour or over night, turning bag over occasionally.

Drain and discard the marinade - you will notice that some of the juice has hardened because of the butter...This is how it is suppose to look.

Thread kabobs alternately using scallops and shrimp.
Heat the grill, and place them on the BBQ uncovered, over medium heat, and grill for about 3 to 5 minutes per side, turning once. 
Brush each side with the remaining marinade.
Grill until shrimp turns pink and scallops are opaque.

Yields 15 Kabobs

  2. So enjoyed this recipe - and your blog! Lovely flavors - looks fantastic - I've just signed up to follow you two!

  3. What a great dish for the upcoming barbecue weekend!

  4. Made them yesterday and they were delicious. I do think they need just a bit more punch, but I'm not sure what that would be. Maybe bay seasoning, or possibly some peppers and onions on the kabob. Any thoughts?

  5. HI Pam! Liz suggests you can add more lime juice. I prefer to add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the marinade to bring out the flavors.
    Not sure, but the green peppers and onions sound delicious with this kabob as well.

  6. I adore both shrimp and scallops and I'm certain that these would be a hit with my family, too.

    It is kabob week at Get Grillin’. Family Fresh Cooking & I would love it if you linked up this recipe & up to 2 other kabob recipes you may have. http://bit.ly/j9keva

    More lime and marinade over night. Also added cilantro which is a must i think.

    Great recipe. Tastes much better on the grill than under the broiler for some reason. Maybe the juices burn off.
