Grilled Shrimp and Scallops With Lime-Ginger Glaze

Quick Lime Ginger glaze for these grilled shrimp on a skewer.


  • skewers


  • 1/2 pound fresh shrimp (de-shelled and de-veined)
  • 1/2 pound fresh scallops
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice about 2 limes
  • Zest from 1/2 lime
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 inch piece of fresh ginger


  • Peel the fresh ginger by scraping it with the edge of a spoon and then grate or mince.  I like to grate the ginger using a micro-planer.  We need about 1 tablespoon of finely minced ginger.
  • Mix the honey, soy, ginger, lime juice and zest in a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer.
  • Simmer the lime, soy and ginger under low heat for about 10 minutes to reduce to a glaze.
  • Preheat the grill to high heat and clean and oil the grates (important to lube up the grates, we don't want to have to pry off one of those beautiful shellfish!).
  • Skewer the shrimp and scallops.
  • Place the shrimp and scallop skewers over high heat and grill with the lid open for about 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Flip the skewers over to the other side and baste the shrimp and scallops with the soy, lime and ginger glaze.
  • Grill for another 3 minutes on the other side and then flip the skewers over.
  • Brush the other side with the glaze and then remove the skewers from the grill.  We just want to hit the other side with the glaze, but don't let them grill too long on the "glazed" side or the honey will burn.
