I've been remiss in posting this week and I'm sorry for that, but between 105 degree weather with 80% humidity (Hawaii anyone!) with sporadic thunderstorms, and then all of a sudden it's 80 (which is cool for this time of year) I had to go and get sick!

Yep...

I did it...I got a painful sore throat, which I NEVER get.  So I've been off my game a little.

So to make it up to you I'm going to share a GREAT recipe with you for some late summer grilling!  I don't post many seafood recipes here on Slice of Southern, but MGG loves seafood.  Me, not so much.  So every now and then we satisfy his cravings and cook up a wonderful fish dish for him.  I'll usually cook chicken for my self using the same flavorings so we have a nice, easy, and tasty dinner that's similar.  

So he requested shrimp and scallops this time around.  Grilled ones!  So I immediately thought of using a wonderful lemon and herb sauce as the basis for this dish that would compliment the fish well.

LEMON HERB GRILLED SHRIMP AND SCALLOPS

This dish is easy enough to make for a party and can be scaled for an intimate dinner for 2 or 4.  I like easy, quick meals and you can't get much easier that making a basting sauce and grilling some fish.  Fish cooks in no time at all and you'll have dinner on the table in about 15 minutes start to finish!  I did use a specialty pan to help me along.  This Pro Ceramic Shrimp and Scallop Pan  is great to have because is made of ceramic, which retains heat well, and it has these wells that hold the shrimp and scallops and the basting sauce!  Perfect, but you can certainly use any pan you like.

The Lemon Herb basting sauce make this dish special!  Don't forget the sauce...you'll love every bite of this dish, I promise.  Serve it with Beth's Confetti Rice and a piece of grilled bread and you have one heck of a meal!

Enjoy!








Lemon Herb Grilled Shrimp and Scallops

serves 2

1/2 lb 10-12 shrimp
1/2 lb scallops - about 6
salt and pepper


Lemon Herb Basting Sauce:
¼ cup olive oil
juice of 1 lemon  ( 2-3 Tablespoons )
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
Fresh ground black pepper


Preheat your seafood pan for 15 minutes over medium-high heat.  Meanwhile in a medium bowl combine all your Lemon Herb basting ingredients.  Remove 2 Tablespoons to a small cup and set aside.

Add shrimp and scallops to the seafood pan. Cook scallops about 2-3 minutes to brown nicely on each side. Grill shrimp, turning once, cooking until the center is slightly opaque, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. After turning each type of fish, baste with the lemon herb sauce.  Turn one final time and baste again.  Place on a platter and drizzle with reserved lemon herb sauce.  Serve with rice.
