    Mango Scallop Kebabs

    While most people think of shrimp when it comes to kebabs, buttery scallops shine on skewers. Just be sure to use the largest sea scallops you can find. If desired, you can replace mango with wedges of seasonal peaches.

    Grilling tip

    For a better sear on the grill, use dry-packed sea scallops instead of wet-packed ones.
