wood skewers

 

To Prepare

Soak skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients for the marinade. Add seafood to the mixture and allow to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Thread 2 shrimp, 1 scallop and 1 piece of swordfish to each skewer, along with an artichoke heart and a few bell pepper chunks. You should have enough for at least 8 skewers.

Prepare grill for medium-high direct heat. Place skewers on grill with lemon halves, cut side down. Cover and grill for 5 minutes. Turn skewers and grill for 5 more minutes or until all seafood is opaque and shrimp is pink. The lemons should be charred. Remove from grill to serving platter.

To Serve

Place skewers on a platter with grilled lemon halves on the side. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over seafood and sprinkle with fresh parsley.

Pair with Long Meadow Sauvignon Blanc.



Eddie's Recipe Tip:

Grilling lemons not only makes them juicier but imparts a subtle smoky flavor.
