By on August 13, 2013

The Sporting Chef, Scott Leysath shows us how to grill shrimp and scallops like a true chef. He cooks them in a square cast iron skillet and traditional skillet in this quick video. Try it at your next gathering, its not as difficult as you may think!


Food you’ll need:

  • Shrimp
  • Scallops
  • Olive oil
  • High Mountain Fish Seasoning (or your favorite fish seasoning)
  • Fresh chopped garlic
  • Pickled ginger (substitute fresh ginger)
  • Lemons and Limes for zest and juice
  • Balsamic rice vinegar
  • Onions
  • Fresh oregano

A few tips:

  • Shrimp doesn’t take long to cook a couple of minutes on one side and less on the other
  • It is done when it turns pink
  • If it is rubbery or chewy, it’s overcooked
  • Cast iron cooks fish really well with its natural non-stick properties
