Seasoned cubes of wild Coho salmon, fat, succulent Kodiak scallops, sweet Alaska deep sea shrimp and artichoke hearts drenched in olive oil alternate on this broiled seafood kebab.
The early Persians were onto something. Skewered meats, seafoods and vegetables deftly seasoned and grilled or broiled to perfection are easy to whip up and always a hit. The variations on these Alaskan seafood kebabs are endless. We seasoned ours with a mixture of ginger, toasted sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, sea salt, sugar, garlic, pepper and a sprinkle of toasted coconut. Add a little soy sauce, too, and serve on a bed of nutrition-packed forbidden rice.
A dash or two each of
- ginger (freshly grated or powdered)
- toasted sesame seeds
- black sesame seeds
- sea salt
- ground pepper
- ground peppers such as chipotle or cayenne
- garlic (fresh chopped fine or powdered)
- toasted coconut
- seafood such as chunks of salmon or other fish, whole scallops, prawns, etc.
- vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, bell pepper, etc.
- olive oil
- Place broiler pan in oven and preheat on broil, or fire up grill.
- Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix to thoroughly coat seafood and vegetables.
- Put food on skewers and place on preheated broiling pan or on hot grill. Cook for about 5 to 10 minutes, turning once or twice.
- Serve hot.
This looks absolutely delicious. I’m gonna have to try it sometime.
Thanks for reading, Tonya. We’re looking forward to doing this again this summer with halibut and rockfish!
Looking forward to it 🙂
Oh yum. As you know, we love both finger foods and meat on sticks.
Perfect grill food. We’ll have to do this on the Weber this summer!
Looks mighty tasty even though I wouldn’t eat it…. hahaha 🙂
This is really a healthy meal, too. Even the black rice is a kind of “super food.”
That is one serious kebab. I like it. And I like both my scallops and salmon rare. Love the artichoke too. Great idea.
We agree, searing is welcome, but too much heat is the enemy of many seafoods. Thanks for commenting. We’ll be doing something like this with the first halibut we bring aboard this summer!
