These easy seafood skewers are marinated in lemonade concentrate, then they're broiled 

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup frozen pink lemonade or lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces medium cleaned and shelled shrimp
  • 8 ounces scallops
  • 1 package (9 ounces) frozen artichoke hearts

Preparation:

Combine lemonade concentrate, oil, salt, and pepper; pour into food storage bag. Add shrimp and scallops, turning bag gently to coat well. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours, turning occasionally.

 

Meanwhile, cook artichoke hearts following package directions. Drain and cool.

Remove the seafood from the refrigerator and drain marinade into a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil and boil for 1 minute.

Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 10 minutes.

Thread 1 shrimp, 1 scallop, and 1 artichoke heart onto each skewer.

Broil 4 inches from heat for about 5 minutes, basting with the boiled marinade.

Turn and brush with more marinade; broil 4 to 5 minutes longer, or until seafood is cooked.

Makes about 2 dozen appetizer skewers.
