  • Meanwhile, for the jicama slaw, in a medium bowl combine jicama, avocado, and cilantro. Pour the reserved 1/2 cup tequila mixture over jicama mixture. Toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and chill until serving time.

Instructions Checklist
  • Drain scallops and shrimp; discard marinade. On six long skewers,* alternately thread scallops and shrimp, leaving 1/4 inch between pieces. For a charcoal or gas grill, place skewers on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium-high heat. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until scallops and shrimp are opaque, turning once halfway through grilling. Serve skewers with jicama slaw and lime wedges.

If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes; drain before using.
