Seafood Kebabs Recipe

Serve these healthy skewers with rice and salad.

Ingredients

8 oz. scallops
12 oz. raw shrimp (tails on)
1 cantaloupe melon (30 balls)
1 honeydew melon (30 balls)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup Brie cheese (remove skin)
1/4 cup light cream

Directions

Step 1: On six 8″ skewers, alternate seafood and melon balls.

Step 2: Mix lemon juice and butter in a small bowl.

Step 3: Grill or broil kebabs for 10 minutes, turning and brushing occasionally with lemon juice mixture. (Seafood should be opaque.)

Step 4: In a small saucepan, melt cheese and gradually whisk in cream. Drizzle the cheese mixture over kebabs.

Step 5: Grill or broil until golden brown. Serve over rice.

Note: 2 lb. of firm fish such as monkfish, shark or swordfish is a tasty alternative to the scallops and shrimp.
