Surf and Turf Kabobs

1 lb sirloin steak (or steak of your choice)
18 raw shrimp
5 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons safflower oil

Cut the steak into bit size pieces and place in a zip-lock bag or a nonmetallic dish.

Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails attached. (I bought the shrimp that were already deveined with tails on).

To make the marinade, whisk the oyster sauce, soy sauce, lemon juice and safflower oil in a small bowl until well combined.

Pour the mixture over the meat, turning to coat and marinate for 15 minutes.

Add the shrimp to the marinade, toss to coat and marinate for 5 minutes.

Remove the meat and shrimp from the marinade.

Thread meat onto metal or presoaked wooden skewers, alternating the steak with the shrimp.

Broil the kabobs over hot coals for 5-10 minutes turning frequently.

Transfer to a warm serving plate and serve immediately.
