These are great for BBQs! You can use an indoor grill pan or broil them, too, so you can have them all year round. :)

Hi Jules me again lol This recipes was a ten. Everyone wanted the recipe. I broiled them but next time we will try the barbecue. I tripled the recipe and should have made more. I asked as we were eating what they would rate the was 10's all around. Great recipe Jules, thanks for making my party a success. 2 thumbs up, and both toes.

A sunny day a couple weeks ago I made these for the grill and they were great. I tried using half lime and half lemon instead of all lemon and while it was good I think the stronger taste of lemon is better for the marinade so I won't do that again. And I added more cayenne. A good recipe!

I loved this receipe as did my guests. I did not use the cayenne, but will try that next time. The only thing I might recommend is pre-grilling the scallops a bit as they seem to cook a bit faster than the shrimp.
