Updated Feb 25, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. boneless beef sirloin steak (1 inch thick)
  • 3/4 lb. uncooked medium shrimp, shelled, tails left on, deveined
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup lime juice

Steps

  • 1
    GRILL DIRECTIONS: Cut steak into 1-inch pieces. Place steak and shrimp in resealable food storage plastic bag. In small bowl, combine all remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour over steak and shrimp in bag. Seal bag; turn to coat. Refrigerate at least 1 hour, turning occasionally.

    Heat grill. Remove steak and shrimp from marinade; reserve marinade. Alternately thread steak and shrimp onto eight 12 to 14-inch metal skewers. Brush with reserved marinade.

    When ready to grill, place kabobs on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals; cover grill. Cook 6 to 8 minutes or until steak is of desired doneness and shrimp turn pink, turning once.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To broil, place kabobs on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide.
  • tip 2
    Light-colored sesame oil has a mild flavor that’s nice for salads and sautéing. Dark sesame oil has a robust flavor and aroma; use this deep brown oil like we have in our kabob recipe, to add a distinctive Asian accent. Look for sesame oil in the Asian foods section of the supermarket.
  • tip 3
    If you prefer your beef well done, thread the beef and the shrimp on separate skewers and grill the beef kabobs a bit longer.
