Seafood lovers will enjoy this duo of juicy shrimp and succulent scallops brushed with a sweet, citrusy glaze. The kebabs make a delicious entrée. Or, for an elegant appetizer, thread only one shrimp and scallop onto smaller skewers instead.

  • Blend the ketchup with the orange juice, maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, paprika and garlic. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and grease lightly.

  • Brush kebobs all over with the maple-orange mixture. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, basting often, or until shellfish turns opaque. Makes 4 servings.

Tips

Twist 1: For a main course, serve over steamed rice with seasonal vegetables.

Twist 2: For a main course salad, serve on mixed greens dressing with a light vinaigrette.

Twist 3: For a citrus twist, use lemon or lime juice for the orange juice.

Twist 4: For a spicier version, substitute Heinz Ketchup Hot & Spicy for the regular ketchup.

I made quite a few changes, mostly by mistake. I mixed all of the ingredients, including the salt (half) and pepper, and marinated the scallops in the mixture. I eliminated the shrimp but added chunks of fresh pineapple. Grilled the skewers, fabulous! I didn't have enough ketchup so I added Stonewall Kitchen's Country Ketchup, which has a nice kick. My wife said "excellent", which is not a word she uses often! Another keeper recipe, thanks for sharing it. Read More

This sauce is delicious! It is sweet yet has a tangy taste to it. The first time I made it I made it with shrimp like it is originally made for. Then tonight I made the same exact sauce with chicken drummettes instead. I had to double everything so that I had enough sauce bt it was delicious and very quick to! The family loved it! Read More

I was surprised how bland this was. I thought about substituting the ketchup for shrimp cocktail sauce. I think BBQ sauce would be better than this. Will not be making this one again. Read More

This was really good and super easy to make. I was able to make it with what I had on hand without any special ingredients. I used Mrs Butterworths instead of pure maple syrup. I will def be making this again and I'll be trying it on chicken as others have suggested Read More
