Grilled Mojito Scallops and Shrimp
Improved these over the weekend..well for my wife's first Mother's Day...they turned out great.
Marinade a scallops and shrimp in a bunch of finely diced mint and cilantro (some may call this a chiffanade ), a clove of garlic, 10 or so key limes juiced, kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, and some olive oil. Marinade to taste, I love the taste of the seafood, so I go light...30 mins for me or so.
Skewer and grill...shrimp and scallops on their own skewers to accomodate the slightly different cooking times.
I served them over a bed of greens with a tomatillo salsa dressing, but they'll shine alone as an app or as a main course.
Oh, and the requisite Mojito of course
Well, I'm on the Downeaster Alexa, and I'm cruisin' through Block Island Sound.
I have chartered a course for the Vineyard, but tonight I am Nantucket bound.
