Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The exact heat of the grill or coals, as well as the outside temperature and wind, can affect your grilling time. Keep a close eye on those shrimp and scallop skewers--they may be done before you know it!
  • tip 2
    For seafood kabobs, leaving a little space between the shrimp, scallops and vegetables will help your kabobs cook more evenly.
