These delicious seafood skewers are great for a light lunch or dinner with chargrilled vegetables. They are super easy to prepare and take less than 10 minutes to cook. Enjoy them with one of our refreshing Italian spritz cocktails!
We were recently lucky enough to spend nearly three weeks travelling around Italy and Croatia. On our first night in Rome, we went to a small restaurant and sat outside. I really fancied fish and Dean really wanted meat which is quite often the way! I ordered seafood skewers and Dean ordered Roman style veal. This recipe is essentially a recreation of the meal I had that night!
We are obsessed with taking photos of food and I simply LOVE sharing our foodie experiences with you! I posted a picture of my seafood skewers on my personal Facebook page and it got so many likes! 👍 So I thought I’d do something similar.
I tried to keep it similar but decided to add scallops and they worked really well. I cooked them on the griddle pan as we wanted them to have a little colour and “chargrilledness” (new word!) to them. They tasted absolutely delicious and went wonderfully well with the chargrilled vegetables. If you have an outside BBQ these skewers would go down a treat with your guests.
We have been having lots of chargrilled vegetables since returning from our trip as in general we’ve been trying to eat more veg in place of carbs. It’s very easy to do and by brushing it with oil you don’t use too much! By keeping it big and chunky it still has a nice crunch and with those charred lines it tastes really delicious.
If you don’t have a griddle pan then I’d definitely recommend getting one – it’s our new best friend! This is the one we have and although a little pricey I can’t recommend it enough!
