Grilling might become a year-round affair when you taste these scrumptious kabobs from Marie Rizzio of Interlochen, Michigan. This elegant entrée combines plump shrimp, tender swordfish and scallops with chunks of veggies and pineapple.

"This recipe called for salmon, but I substituted another fish with delicious results," says Lisa Rowley of North East, Maryland. "It saves me time in the kitchen because all I have to do is mix up the seasoned butter, then turn it over to my husband, who does the grilling.
My husband loves swordfish, and this is his favorite way to have it—moist, tender and perked up with herbs. Tuna is a good substitute for swordfish. Its firm texture stands up to grilling. —Lorie Rice, Liverpool, New York
Weda Mosellie writes from Phillipsburg, New Jersey, "I love beef and lamb kabobs, but my doctor says I need to eat more fish. Since I also love grilling, these kabobs are a healthy alternative. They're great year-round."
In Baraboo, Wisconsin, Nancy Thome threads marinated swordfish, fresh pineapple and green pepper onto skewers for a grilled sensation. The kabobs offer a hint of citrus flavor that's uniquely complemented by cayenne pepper, chili powder and crushed red pepper flakes.
Step aside, marinara. There’s a new sauce in town, and it’s blissfully fresh with fennel and basil. TV-inspired and husband-adored, it would be a crime not to share this one. —Laurel Dalzell, Manteca, California
