Ingredients

  • Your choice of fresh seafood (e.g., shrimp, scallops, salmon)
  • Assorted colorful bell peppers, cut into chunks
  • Red onion, cut into wedges
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Zucchini, sliced into rounds
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
  • For the marinade:
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Garlic, minced
  • Fresh herbs (e.g., basil, thyme, rosemary)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Begin by preparing the marinade. In a bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, fresh herbs, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Place your choice of fresh seafood in a separate bowl and pour half of the marinade over it. Toss to coat the seafood evenly, then cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. While the seafood is marinating, prepare the skewers. Thread the marinated seafood, bell peppers, red onion wedges, cherry tomatoes, and zucchini onto the soaked wooden skewers, alternating the ingredients for a colorful presentation.
  4. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking.
  5. Grill the seafood skewers for about 2-3 minutes per side or until the seafood is opaque and slightly charred, and the vegetables are tender-crisp.
  6. During grilling, baste the skewers with the remaining marinade for extra flavor.
  7. Once done, remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a minute.
  8. Serve the succulent grilled seafood skewers hot with a side of lemon wedges and your favorite dipping sauce.
