Swordfish Shrimp Kabobs

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."

    This was just ok. The marinade had a very good flavor but it didn't do anything to enhance the flavor of the shrimp or swordfish.
