No grill out is complete without kabobs. These shrimp, steak, and veggie kabobs are packed with flavor, crunch, color, and nutrition. Plus, there’s no easier way to get people to eat (and love) their veggies than by throwing them on the grill. Easily customizable for your guests, you can thread the kabobs four ways: as surf and turf with veggies, turf with veggies, surf with veggies, or just veggies.

For serving (optional):
In a large mixing bowl, combine all marinade ingredients. Mix well. Divide marinade evenly into two separate, large resealable bags.
Add steak and shrimp to one resealable bag. Add veggies to the other resealable bag.
Marinate for 20–25 minutes.
Preheat grill to high heat. Clean and oil grates.
Thread veggies, shrimp, and steak onto the skewers, balancing color, shrimp, and steak evenly. Start and end with zucchini. Place prepared skewers onto a large baking tray for easy transport to the grill. Reserve marinade from the vegetable bag. Discard marinade from the meat and shrimp.
Place skewers onto the grill and reduce heat to medium high. Grill, turning skewers after a few minutes to cook evenly. Brush skewers with leftover marinade from vegetables. Grill until shrimp are cooked through and opaque and steak reaches desired doneness (safe internal temperature for steak is 145 degrees F, as measured with a meat thermometer in the center of the thickest part of the steak). Remove from grill and place onto a large serving platter.
Sprinkle skewers with cayenne pepper, if desired. Serve.
