    French Tart's Note:

    Look at this - Shrimps (Prawns), Scallops, Pineapple and Red (Bell)Peppers marinated in Authentic Jamaican Jerk Marinade by de Roché, skewered and then grilled before being served in Papaya Boats.....we have NOT finished yet, ALSO served with a salad of Melon Balls, Fennel, Mango, Red Onion, and Mint!! How can you resist this SIZZLING and SASSY offering from the girls with more Sass & more Dash than they know what to do with?! Hot and spicy - yet cool and fresh - a TOTALLY tropical experience! Here is the Who's Who: Karen/FT: I am the Jerk of the team - Oops, I mean I love it hot, so I am Jamaican Jerk Marinade: Peggy/A Good Thing: She has the balls - she loves Melon Balls: Kate does GREAT things with her Scallops: Melissa hankers after Sassy Shrimp(Prawns):Um Safia/Rezika loves her Mint to bits: Dawn always has to have her daily chunks - of Pineapple & Fennel:Mama Jennie says don't forget the Onion - preferably Red: Dicentra loves to play in Papaya Boats: cajun chef in Louisiana is red hot, but does not mind a red Pepper(bell) now and then, and Star must have a mango a day - helps her work, rest and play! Steve Martin stops by often to eat our JERK skewers - are you a big enough Jerk to try these sassy seafood skewers??

      These were very easy to prepare and very yummy! I served the skewers over basmati rice. Howvever, I did feel that marinating overnight might have been a bit too long. An hour or two would probably be enough. The papaya boats were so cute though, and I loved the mix of fruit and veggies in this! Thanks to the Sassy Saucepan Clan!

      I made up this delicious recipe yesterday, making up half the skewers with boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the kids, and all-shrimp skewers for me and DH (marinated separately). They were both delicious, but I will say that the original of seafood skewers (sorry, no scallops here) was definitely better, especially with the spritely salsa salad - the shrimp-fruit/fennel were better suited, but the chicken was great, too. Thanks for a delicious dinner that helped us beat the heat.

      I loved the skewers and DBF loved everything about this dish. I didn't eat the fruit salad, but the MMMMMs coming from DBF let me know that it was really good. I served this with some plain brown rice and corn on the cob for a flavorful summer dinner. Thanks ladies for creating a jerk dish I can get behind!
