Citrus Grilled Scallops or Shrimp

2 tablespoons green onions, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 tablespoon chili paste (optional)

1/4 cup OLIVE & VINE olive oil (Blood Orange, Meyer Lemon, Eureka Green Lemon or Persian Lime)

1 pound scallops or shrimp

 

Combine green onions, garlic, pepper, chili paste and olive oil in a large bowl. Add scallops or shrimp and toss to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes. (Don't over marinate or scallops and shrimp will become mushy.) Thread onto skewers and grill over medium heat for approximately 8 minutes. Turn several times during cooking and brush with leftover marinade. Delicious with rice or pasta that has been drizzled lightly with the olive oil.
