Meanwhile, thaw shrimp and salmon, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, keeping tails intact. Cut salmon into 1-inch pieces.
For marinade, in small mixing bowl, stir together wine vinegar, catsup, the 2 tablespoons oil, soy sauce, mustard, garlic, and pepper.
Place long cooking vegetables, shrimp, salmon, and quick-cooking vegetables in a plastic bag in a shallow dish. Pour marinade over all; close the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning once.
Drain vegetables, shrimp, and salmon, reserving marinade. Thread vegetables, shrimp, and salmon alternately on 8 to 10 inch skewers.
Brush grill rack with oil. Grill kabobs on an uncovered grill over hot coals 10 to 12 minutes or until shrimp turns pink and salmon just flakes with a fork. Turn and brush with the reserved marinade frequently. Serves 4.
