Happy #SeafoodSunday, Seafoodies!
As we fire up the grill this Sunday, we’re paying tribute to the beloved kabob (or kebab). No matter how you spell it, seafood on a stick is a reminder that food can be fun! Kabobs are Sunday seafood at its best—simple to cook, a treat to eat and a breeze to clean up. If this sounds awesome to you, stick around. We’ve gathered some mouthwatering summer kabob recipes to help you kick up your grilling game this summer!
When it comes to difficulty level, seafood skewers are essentially foolproof: We’re talking Grilling 101! The basic formula is to prep some seafood, thread the skewers and give them a quick char on the grill. If you’re short on time, look for skewer recipes that don’t call for marinating—instead, you can baste kabobs on the grill, or add a squeeze of lemon or compound butter right before serving.
When it comes to your health, seafood kabobs have more nutrition than you can shake a stick at! Packed with protein and low in saturated fat, they will skewer your hunger and be kind to your waistline. They’re a snap to prepare, which makes it easy to fit in the two to three servings of seafood per week recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. And like all seafood dishes, kabobs offer an ocean full of essential nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids—which our bodies don’t produce on their own—as well as vitamin D and potassium.
We also love kabobs because of their universal appeal. They’re a clever way to introduce seafood to Little Seafoodies, and they’ve been known to convert non-seafood eaters to budding pescatarians. So, they’re a sure bet for your next barbecue—just make plenty to go around because they’ll disappear quickly!
But don’t wait for a special occasion. With tempting combos like honey-garlic shrimp, orange-infused scallops and chipotle-seasoned lobster tails, you’ll want to dive right into these recipes tonight! Enjoy!
