Pineapple and Scallop Skewers
Ingredients
  • 2  teaspoons  finely shredded lime peel
  • 1/4  cup  lime juice
  • 1/4  cup  snipped fresh cilantro
  • 2  small green and/or red jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2  teaspoons  sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1/3  cup  canola oil
  • 16  sea scallops (about 1-1/2 lb.)
  • 12  large fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1  avocado, peeled, pitted, and cut into 8 chunks
Directions

1. In a small bowl combine lime peel, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeno, sugar, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in oil until combined; set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine scallops, pineapple, and avocado. Toss with 2 tablespoons of the lime juice mixture. Let stand for 15 minutes*, stirring occasionally.

3. Alternately thread 4 scallops, 3 pineapple chunks and 2 avocado chunks on each of 4 12- to 16-inch skewers.

4. Grill kabobs on a well-greased grill rack directly over medium-high heat for about 8 minutes or until scallops turn opaque, turning once halfway through grilling. Transfer kabobs to a serving platter and serve with remaining lime juice mixture. Makes 4 servings.
