We’ve been grilling a lot of shrimp and scallops lately. Susan skewers the Shrimp but I prefer the large Sea Scallops loose on the GrillGrates. The scallops sear beautifully and are easily handled with The GrateTool, although...
Shrimp (21-24 count or larger)
Sea Scallops (bigger the better)
old bay seasoning
Place the butter, lemon juice, garlic, and Old Bay in a large mixing bowl and combine with a whisk.
Divide the mixture in two.
Add Shrimp to one bowl and toss.
Add Scallops to the other bowl and toss.
Using two skewers about an inch apart begin to thread the shrimp and scallops. You want to separate the two as they will take longer to cook.
Repeat until you have use all of the shrimp and scallops.
Warm up the grill to medium 450 degrees F max - no need for a scorching hot GrillGrate surface. The goal is firm and tender.
Give the scallops a 5-minute head start and turn once before putting the skewered Shrimp on the GrillGrates.
Turn shrimp after 2-3 minutes
Pull off in 5 minutes while shrimp is still pink. (no red- that is over cooked.
