This dish was awesome! I was a little skeptical at first because I have never had just seafood on a kabob and not add meat or veggies with it. I thought it might taste fishy. Nothing like that. It was very spicy, of course I added double the spice because what was on here was not enough for my 3 full skewers. I had to drink 3 glasses of water through this meal. My husband and I talked the whole meal about how wonderful it is. Definately will be making this again. Thanks so much for sharing this!!! Perfect with a side of whole grain noodles with a little olive oil, garlic and parsley. Yum!!
