Grilled Creole Surf and Turf Kabobs


Yields: 4 Servings


Ingredients

  • Eight 8 to 10 inch wood skewers, soaked in water

  • 20 pieces U 16-20 shrimp, preferably domestic

  • Smokey Chermoula, recipe follows

  • Two 8-ounce strip steaks

  • 2 teaspoons P.S. Flavor!™ Creole Kitchen

  • Mambo Marinated Vegetables, recipe follows

  • 2 lemons, cut in half

  • Fresh herbs, such as flat leaf parsley or cilantro, for garnish


Method

  1. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails on. Place in bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon Smokey Chermoula (recipe follows).

  2. Skewer shrimp (5 per skewer) and lay flat on one end of a foil lined tray. Wrap skewer ends with aluminum foil.

  3. Trim any excess fat from strip steaks. Cut each steak lengthwise into 2 long strips and then cut across each piece 4 times making five equal-sized chunks from each long strip.

  4. Place steak in bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons Smokey Chermoula.

  5. Skewer 5 chunks of steak uniformly, touching but not tightly packed onto skewer (to allow heat to get in between chunks).

  6. Lay flat on opposite end of tray from shrimp; wrap skewer ends with aluminum foil.

  7. Remove peppers from marinade – place on fire skin side down until charred, flip and char on the other side.

  8. Place onions and mushrooms on the hot spot of the grill. Get color and pull over to side for more indirect heat.

  9. Place the zucchini and scallions on grill, with the white part of scallions in the hottest part. Get color and move to side with other vegetables (stacking vegetables) to finish cooking.

  10. Sprinkle Creole Kitchen on beef skewers; add the skewers to right or left part of the grill. Grill 1 1/2 minutes on each side and roll to the next side, basting with additional Smokey Chermoula and caramelizing as you go. Repeat two more times until all sides are caramelized and somewhat firm to the touch. Pull over to the indirect side of the grill to rest while cooking shrimp skewers.

  11. Brush grill and spritz with oil. Sprinkle Creole Kitchen on shrimp skewers; add skewers to the grill. Grill 1 1/2 minutes on one side and flip, brush with more Smokey Chermoula. Flip again, and do a final brush with Smokey Chermoula.

  12. Grill lemon halves.

  13. To plate, place grilled vegetables on dish and top with a skewer of shrimp and a skewer of steak. Garnish with grilled lemon and fresh herbs, and serve with a side of Smokey Chermoula in a small bowl or ramekin for dipping.
