"The recipe for this is basically the "sauce;" as for the seafood and vegetables, you can use what you like. For seafood, shrimp is what I prefer, but scallops (sea scallops), or even swordfish, halibut or cod is a great choice. For the vegetables, pearl onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, and squash all work well - but mix it up to what you like. Just make sure the vegetables are cut fairly small and thin, as the seafood cooks very quick. Serve over white rice. It is a very quick, easy and healthy recipe. Note: I did amend the recipe after the first review. I didn't realize the ingredients had got screwed up and duplicated. The recipe has been fixed, and apologize for the inconvenience."

Step 1

BBQ Sauce ... Add all the ingredients to a small sauce pan and heat to medium high. Bring to a light boil and then reduce to a simmer, cook 5 minutes and turn off the heat. Add to a small bowl or container until ready to use. This makes a bit more than you need, so just refrigerate the extra - it will last about 1 week in the refrigerator.

Step 2

Seafood and Vegetables ... Remove the seafood and vegetables from the refrigerator to take the chill off. Skewer the seafood and vegetables any way you want - there is no right or wrong. Brush the skewers with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Grill ... Add the skewers to a medium heat grill and brush immediately with the BBQ sauce. Rotate often and brush with the BBQ sauce. It will take around 10-15 minutes depending on what type of seafood and vegetables you are using. It cooks quick, so keep an eye on them. NOTE: These could also be broiled. Obviously it is best on a grill (inside or outside), but they can be broiled.

Step 4

Serve ... White rice is perfect on the side and maybe some fruit. Garnish the kabobs with the scallions and ENJOY!
