Scallop, Orange, and Cucumber Kebabs

Both wooden and metal skewers are great for kebabs. Wooden skewers need to be soaked in water for 30 minutes before use.

  • prep: 20 mins
    total time: 20 mins
  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • Olive oil, for grates
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 navel orange, halved and cut into 1/2-inch wedges, plus 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 8 very thin slices peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/2 Kirby cucumber, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 pound large scallops
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat grill to medium; clean and lightly oil hot grates. In a small bowl, combine honey and orange juice.

  2. Step 2

    Onto four skewers, thread orange wedges (through skin), ginger, cucumber, and scallops, beginning and ending with orange wedges; season with salt and pepper. Grill kebabs until scallops are opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes, turning and basting with honey mixture halfway through.

    what about the ginger?

  • 17 Jul, 2009

    These were yummy. The oranges and the cucumbers on the grill tasted great, and complemented the scallops so nicely. Ginger is for those who really love ginger--I suppose it gives a bit of flavor to the scallops. You won't be sorry.
