5.  Drain and discard the marinade – you will notice that some of the juice has hardened because of the butter…This is how it is supposed to look.

6.  Thread kabobs alternately using scallops and shrimp.

    […] Since we had already made scallops during the thirty-day dinner challenge Kate searched for a recipe that would take making scallops in a direction we have not pursued until now: Kabobing. She used the recipe “Best Grilled Shrimp and Scallop Kabobs”: https://2sistersrecipes.com/best-grilled-shrimp-and-scallop-kabobs/  […]

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

    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

    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.

    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?
