Grilled Shrimp and Scallops

Grilled Shrimp and Scallops
This recipe is for brand affiliate Grillgrates

Grilled shrimp and scallops are easy to prepare and make a great appetizer or main dish. You can skewer the shrimp and scallops, or if they are large enough, cook them loose on the grill.

Shrimp and scallops are delicate, so always be gentle and turn them carefully. Soak the wooden skewers ahead of time, at least 30 minutes, and up to overnight, to prevent them from burning on the grill.

Serve the seafood with lemon wedges and chopped fresh herbs. They also go nicely with potato salad, mixed into a green salad, or with rice pilaf, for a complete meal.
