      Directions

      For the sauce: Combine the tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic powder, and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.

      For the skewers: Cut scallops into halves or quarters, so that they are just slightly larger than the shrimp. Cut salmon and zucchini into chunks approximately the same size as the scallops.

      Place all the vegetables and seafood onto 4 skewers, alternating their order.

      Bring a grill or grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add skewers and cook until seafood begins to turn opaque on top, about 5 minutes.

      Flip skewers and cook until all seafood is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.

      Drizzle or brush sauce over skewers immediately after removing them from heat.

        I think this bbq sauce is a great base. It was very tomato-ey but once i added a few more of my favorite flavors. It rocked! I love this new show hungry girl!!

        The bbq sauce was not to my family's taste at all. I know we're going for lower calories, etc and I'm all for trying new things. This sauce did not do it for me.
