Summertime and the grilling is easy… oh so cheesy but it is summer time so that means grill all the foods!! This Grilled Mixed Seafood Kabobs with Old Bay Sweet Potato Wedge Fries recipe is sponsored by World Market on behalf of the blog, Discover.
Living in Las Vegas we tend to use the grill year round, although in the summertime it is a little crazy since its well over 100 degrees most days and standing in front of a blazing hot grill isn’t always fun. Sitting in an ice cold pool is fun in summer. But grilled foods are the way to go and I have a solution. What you do is you have a kiddy pool set up next to the grill so when its time to get up and flip the food you are only out of your ice bath for a few moments to grill up delicious foods. Win Win.
This past march I went to the BNP Paribas tennis tournament with my parents to watch the pro tennis players compete for a few days. The food at the tournament left much to be desired so one night we decided to try a seafood place near by. They had a display of all the seafood and fish since they doubled as a seafood market and I saw they had a mixed grilled seafood kabob on the menu. I ordered it and it came with sweet potato waffle fries and salad. It was one of the best meals I have had in a long time ( not counting the tennis tournament food) and I knew I wanted to recreate it at home.
I love grilled seafood with onions, peppers and pineapples, we make it often at home but usually in the form of a fish taco with a pineapple salsa. The change up with kabobs is fun plus the seasonings and pineapple chile dipping sauce is so good. I also love sweet potato fries to go with the kabobs and while the ones I had at the restaurant were good, they were deep fried and I much prefer a healthier preparation with baked or grilled. Sweet potato fries cut into wedges, sprinkled with a little Old Bay seasoning and lightly grilled are one of my favorite sides to have at dinnertime with many meals from burgers to seafood kabobs.
If you haven’t tried Old Bay spice on sweet potato fries you need to make them ASAP. I got the Old Bay at World Market of course and it isn’t just for seafood or a crab boil. I prefer it on fries! You can get the entire recipe and more photos on Discover, by World Market.
I hope you enjoy this Mixed Grilled Seafood Kabobs with Old Bay Sweet Potato Fries recipe as much as we do and I wish you happy grilling all summer long!
