Ingredients

  • 1 box angel hair pasta
  • 1/2 lb. large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 lb. sea scallops rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning blend
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil some for grill
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Place a large pot of salted water over high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Prepare and preheat your grill or grill pan. Meanwhile, drop the pasta in the boiling water and cook according to the directions on the box. Continue with the rest of the recipe while the pasta cooks. When the pasta is cooked, drain it and set it aside until the rest of the meal is prepared.
  • In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place the bread crumb mixture on a sheet pan.
  • Place the shrimp on 4 metal or soaked wood skewers. Do the same with the scallops on the other four skewers.
  • Coat the shrimp and scallops with the breadcrumbs. Then, drizzle the olive oil over both sides of the shrimp and scallops.
  • Using a paper towel held by tongs, lightly oil your grill or grill pan. Place the scallops on the grill. At 3 minutes, flip them over and place the shrimp on the grill. At 1 minute, flip the shrimp over and grill for another minute. The scallops take approximately 5 minutes to cook and the shrimp take approximately 2 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepot over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Whisk in the lemon juice and allow the sauce to come back up to a simmer. Add the parsley to the sauce.
  • Place the pasta in shallow serving bowls. Slide the scallops and shrimp off of the skewers onto the pasta. Dress each dish with lemon butter sauce and season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve while warm.
