TERIYAKI SCALLOP KABOBS
Scallops are low in fat and high in protein. You can substitute shrimp or even combine the two proteins.
1 – 1 ½ pounds of sea scallops (those are the large ones)
1 large red or orange bell pepper, cut into 1” chunks
2 medium zucchini cut 1” thick
2 avocados (not too mushy), cut 1” cubes
2 cups of pineapple chunks
2 TBLS of soy sauce or reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 TBL of rice vinegar
1 TBL of lime juice
1 Tsp of Sriracha sauce
Place ingredients on the skewers (if you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 15 minutes so they don’t burn).
Whisk together the sauce ingredients.
Pour half of the mixture on the kebabs 15-20 minutes before grilling.
Heat grill to medium-high heat.
Cook kebabs, covered, turning once, for a total cook time of five to six minutes, or just until scallops are opaque.
Brush on remaining sauce halfway through grilling.
