Very good shrimp and scallops -- used garlic chili sauce -- but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome and so easy.. omitted the sugar and used only shrimp. Was out of this world and got rave reviews from my date. Will definitely make this again and again!

Wonderful marinade! I used a chili garlic sauce so the result wasn't spicy at all, but the flavor was still great. I need to work on my grilling technique (yes, I overcooked the kebabs) but the shrimps and scallops still tasted wonderful. Thanks for a great recipe!
