Scallop Kabobs

“I’m always on the lookout for recipes that are lower in fat and heart-healthy, too. These kabobs fill the bill. I like to serve them with a fruit salad and a light dessert.” Edie DeSpain - Logan, UT

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Dash garlic powder
  • Dash pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds sea scallops
  • 3 medium green peppers, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes

Directions

  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring 3 cups water to a boil. Add peppers; cover and boil for 2 minutes. Drain and immediately place peppers in ice water. Drain and pat dry.
  • Drain and discard marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the tomatoes, scallops and peppers.
  • Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until scallops are firm and opaque, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.

    The marinade was a little bland. I think I would add some red pepper flakes or maybe ginger next time.

    Not bad but felt the marinade was a bit bland and missing something.

    With no ingredients I guess it would be lower in fat, calories, carbs, sodium, etc.
