Diet.Chef's picture
  Tiger prawns 12 Ounce, peeled leaving tails intact (350 Gram, Jumbo Shrimp)
  Scallops 12 Ounce, cleaned, trimmed and halved (350 Gram)
  Spring onions 1⁄4 Pound, sliced into 2.5 cm/1 inch pieces (Scallions, 1 Bunch)
  Red bell pepper 1 , deseeded and cubed
  Baby corn 3 1⁄2 Ounce, trimmed and sliced into 1 cm/1/2 inch pieces (100 Gram)
  Hot chili powder 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sunflower oil 1 Tablespoon
  Red chili 1 , deseeded and sliced
  Dark soy sauce 4 Tablespoon
  Dry sherry 4 Tablespoon
  Clear honey 2 Teaspoon
  Fresh ginger root 1 Inch, peeled and grated
  Spring onion 1 , trimmed and very finely sliced (Scallion)

1. Soak 12 wooden skewers in cold water for 10 minutes to prevent them from burning.
2. Divide the prawns (shrimp), scallops, spring onions (scallions), (bell) pepper and baby corn cobs into 12 portions and thread on to the skewers. Cover the ends with foil so that they do not burn and place in a shallow dish.
3. Mix the soy sauce, chilli powder and ground ginger and coat the shellfish and vegetable kebabs (kabobs). Cover and leave to chill for about 2 hours.
4. Preheat the grill (broiler) to hot. Place the kebabs (kabobs) on the rack, brush the shellfish and vegetables with oil and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until the prawns (shrimp) turn pink, the scallops become opaque and the vegetables are soft.
5. Mix together the dip ingredients.
6. Remove the foil and transfer the kebabs (kabobs) to a warm serving platter. Garnish with sliced chilli and serve with the dip.
