Expert Tips

Grilling imparts a pleasant smoky flavor to shrimp and scallops coated in store-bought pesto. Have it ready in 25 minutes.

If you don’t have a grill basket, double a sheet of heavy-duty foil and poke several holes in it. Then grill this dish according to the recipe.

Directions

  • 1 Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. In large bowl, mix all ingredients. Place seafood mixture in grill basket (grill “wok”).
  • 2 Cover and grill seafood mixture over medium heat 10 to 12 minutes, shaking basket or stirring seafood mixture occasionally, until shrimp are pink and firm and scallops are white.
