Another tast BBQ recipe from Womans Day. This is so refreshing and tasty. I love it served with pilaf and grilled pitas. Prep time includes marinade time.

What a wonderful punch to simple seafood. For dietary reasons, I did cut back on the oil to one tbsp and then tossed the seafood to coat. I then mixed the seasonings together and used them more or less like a rub and let the shrimp & scallops marinate as instucted. Simple and sublime. Thank you Michelle S. for sharing the recipe.
