Description

What better way to have a last hurrah for summer on the grill? The combination of fresh basil and parsley with a citrus marinade is so good.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Large Sea Scallops
  • 1 pound Large Shrimp In The Shell
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • ¼ cups Basil
  • ¼ cups Parsley
  • 1 whole Orange, Zest And Juice
  • ½ whole Lime, Juiced
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Preparation

Thaw scallops by quickly rinsing them under water just enough to clean them. Clean the shrimp. Drain the seafood and pat dry.

Place the shrimp and scallops into a large bowl. Mince the garlic and herbs and throw it all in the bowl with the seafood. Add the orange zest and juice, lime juice, salt, pepper, and of olive oil. Stir until combined and set aside to marinate while your grill heats up.

Clean your grill and heat it to as high as it will go—the covered grill should get to about 475ºF to 500ºF before you start. Make sure you have long grill tongs, as the grill will be hot!

As soon as you’re ready, stir the seafood again to make sure you have a nice coating of oil and then work quickly to place the shrimp and then the scallops on the grill. Don’t move or fuss with them once they are down, as you want a nice sear and some grill marks. Use a basting brush or spoon to distribute the remaining flavored oil on top of the shrimp and scallops. Turn the seafood once and continue to cook until just cooked through.
