Seafood Skewers with Cheddar Stuffed Peppers

By · Apr 11 2011 · Comments (1)

Let grilling season commence!  I love skewers, but often find I am itching for a little more flavor. Here I added chesse stuffed sweet peppers for a welcome hint of creaminess.



- ¾ LB large shrimp, deveined and shelled

- ¾ LB scallops

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- ¼ teaspoon salt

- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

-  Juice from one lime

Everything Else

- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

- 1 cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese

- 1/3 cup goat cheese

- 1 clove garlic, minced

- 1 pint mini sweet peppers

- ½ red onion, cut into 1” pieces

- 10 cremini mushrooms

- 10 tomatillos


Combine the ingredients listed under “marinade” in a large bowl, thoroughly coating the shrimp and scallops.  Cover and refrigerate for one hour.

Meanwhile, combine the remaining cilantro, the cheeses and garlic in a medium sized bowl.  Cut a slit along the length of each pepper.  Clean out the seeds and stuff with a large spoonful of the cheese.  Close the peppers shut around the cheese.

Pre-heat the grill over medium heat.

Remove the seafood from the refrigerator.  Thread the shrimp, scallops, stuffed peppers, mushrooms, onion and tomatillos on large metal skewers.  Grill for 3 minutes, flip and continue to grill for three minutes.  Serve immediately.
