Instructions Checklist

  • Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Thread the shrimp onto 4 metal skewers. Alternate the scallops and salmon cubes on 4 more metal skewers. Brush the skewers with the olive oil and season generously with the spice mix. (Reserve any remaining spice mix for another use.)

  • Grill the skewers over moderately high heat until the seafood is lightly charred and just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle the seafood with the parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
