Another awesome recipe from Hungry Girl-seriously, I love Lisa's creative ways of keep recipes, healthy, filling, and delicious.

Saucy BBQ Seafood Skewers with Not-So-Secret BBQ Sauce

PER SERVING (2 skewers with sauce): 299 calories, 7g fat, 616mg sodium, 19g carbs, 2.5g fiber, 12g sugars, 40g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7*

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

1/4 cup canned tomato sauce
2 tbsp. ketchup
2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

6 oz. large raw sea scallops
4 oz. large raw shrimp, tails removed, deveined, peeled
4 oz. raw salmon fillet
1 medium-small zucchini (or half of a large zucchini)
8 - 10 cherry tomatoes

Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside. Cut scallops into halves or quarters, so that they are just slightly larger than the shrimp. Cut salmon and zucchini into chunks approximately the same size as the scallops.

Place all seafood and veggies onto 4 skewers, alternating their order.

Bring a grill or grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add skewers and cook until seafood begins to turn opaque on top, about 5 minutes.

Flip skewers and cook until all seafood is cooked through, 4 - 5 minutes. Drizzle or brush sauce over skewers immediately after removing them from heat, or serve sauce on the side!


HG Heads-Up! Before assembling, soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning.
