How To Make Salmon and Scallop Kabobs with Romesco Sauce

The combination of scallops and salmon really gives these kabobs that seafood goodness and adds a different flavor profile to your usual summer barbecues.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



For Skewers:

  • 3tbspextra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 3tbspfresh lime juice
  • 8ozsalmon fillet
  • 8sea scallops
  • 8wooden skewers
  • 1red onion
  • 1red pepper
  • 1poblano chili

For Sauce:

  • 1red bell pepper
  • ¼cupcherry tomatoes
  • 9tbspalmonds,coarsely chopped, (8 or 9 whole almonds)
  • 2clovegarlic
  • 1tbspsherry vinegar
  • ¼cupextra virgin olive oil
  • 1pinchkosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat grill, In a baking dish, combine olive oil, salt, pepper to taste, and lime juice for a marinade. Add salmon and scallops to dish and stir with a wooden spoon to coat all pieces. Cover and refrigerate while making sauce.


  1. In a blender, combine roasted pepper and tomatoes, almonds, garlic, vinegar, and olive oil, blending until smooth Season with salt and pepper to taste, and set aside.

  2. Remove salmon and scallops from marinade, and discard liquid. Pat dry each scallop and chunk of fish with paper towels.

  3. Thread each skewer with 2 onion chunks, 1 salmon chunk, bell pepper and poblano chunks, and 1 scallop.

  4. These cook quickly, so it’s best to set them to the side of the grill and not directly over a flame. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, then turn. Turn skewers gently so fish doesn’t break and fall into fire.

  5. When salmon feels firm to touch and scallops show light grill marks, remove from grill.

  6. To serve, arrange 2 skewers on each plate and spoon sauce over them, or pile skewers on a serving platter and serve sauce in a bowl.
