Basil Wrapped Shrimp and Scallops

4 Aug

There is nothing better than grilled peaches, except grilled peaches and seafood. Grilling peaches intensifies their sweetness and adding spice makes the sweetness stand out even more. We  really enjoyed theses sweet grilled peaches paired with spicy seafood wrapped in fresh basil leaves.

  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp ground Aleppo pepper or 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and 1 tsp paprika
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • scallops and/or shrimp
  • 1 large peach, sliced
  • large basil leaves

Heat the grill medium heat. Whisk together the oil, Aleppo pepper, salt and lemon zest. Add the shrimp, scallops and peach slices to the oil mix. Toss and let it sit 10 minutes. Wrap a scallop/shrimp in a large basil leaf and skewer it. Add a peach slice wrapped in a basil leaf. Repeat. Grill turning once until seafood is charred and just cooked through. 5-7 minutes. Season with black pepper.
