Grilled Scallops and Shrimp: Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and especially to my wife (Lisa) and mom (Jane).

Had a perfect, relaxing, yet busy day with the family.

We planned on taking the boat out to do some bass fishing but it ended up being too windy (Small Craft Advisory).  So we made the best of it by playing some mini-golf, hitting the driving range and tried catching some fish at the marina. (No luck with the fish)

Lisa and Dylan both had a hole-in-one in mini-golf but I didn’t.   Dylan was sure to remind me of that several times.

These scallops were OnPoint!


I must say, this meal was fantastic.

I forgot to take a picture of the completed plate as I was too busy trying to watch the end of the Caps vs. Rangers game (what a great series).

Both had just the right amount of spice and the scallops had a nice crust on the outside but were tender in the middle.  Cooked perfectly.

Will definitely make this again!   Was a busy weekend for Bessie and she held up well.

We have family coming into town next weekend so I’m sure Bessie will be busy again.

Hope all the moms had a wonderful day!  Till next time
