Apricot Habanero Glazed Shrimp and Tuna Kebobs

Hot, sweet seafood on a stick.



Ettamae’s Café, now closed, was located in Richmond’s historic Jackson Ward, with a classic, satisfying menu that featured comfort foods with a gourmet twist. This recipe features the use of a smokeless grill—a definite boon to the urbanites among us who might not have the space for more traditional equipment.
