1/2 cup 118mlMango chutney

Recipe Instructions

In a food processor or blender puree chutney, orange juice, and barbecue sauce until smooth. Thread four 12-inch skewers in the following order; pineapple, prawn, scallop, tomato, onion, prawn, scallop, tomato, onion, prawn, scallop, pineapple.

Brush skewers liberally with sauce and place in center of cooking grate. Grill 6 to 8 minutes or until prawns are pink and scallops are opaque, turning and brushing liberally with sauce again halfway through grilling time. Serve with remaining sauce for dipping.


Wine Recommendation: A Semillon-Chardonnay blend from Australia will accommodate this citrusy sauce just brilliantly.

Beer Recommendation: How to dance around the seafood and still tango with the mango? Just say "ale." A yeasty Hefe-Weizen will do wonderfully.
