Make Steak and Shrimp Shish Kabobs the next time you grill this summer! 

Our daughters love shish kabobs and this recipe is a fun way to make them smile. Along with the steak and shrimp, I opted for chunks of zucchini, green peppers, onions, and mushrooms, but you could also add cherry or grape tomatoes or fresh pineapple.

The teriyaki marinade sauce is amazing and gives the meat and vegetables a wonderful flavor. When you’re marinating your meat, be sure to put the plastic bag in a large bowl to protect your refrigerator from accidental spills. Cook your steak to your desired degree of doneness, but 12-18 minutes ought to do the trick.

Serve Steak and Shrimp Shish Kabobs with your favorite summer salads like Antipasto Salad, Mixed Vegetable Salad, or Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad.
