Serves 4, Preparation time 10 mins, Cooking time 20 mins

  • Shrimps, shelled – 400 g.
  • 8 scallops
  • Breadcrumbs, to taste
  • 8-9 cherry tomatoes
  • a handful of sesame seeds
  • a sprig of parsley
  • Extra Virgin olive oil (EVOO), to taste
  • Lemon, 1
  • Balsamic winegar, to taste – optional


Remove scallops from their shell and shelling shrimps, wash and then dry them well with kitchen paper.

Halve cherry tomatoes and prepare 8 skewers by alternating scallops, cherry tomatoes and shirmps in each.

Put breadcrumbs on a flat plate and add also sesame seeds with minced parsley.

Pass each skewers in breadcrumbs/sesame/parsley mixture, they will stick pretty easily, so no need to pass them in eggs before.

As soon as the grid is warm enough, put skewers on and add a drizzle of Evoo.

Turn them from time to time until they ready. It will take at most 10 mins.

Tip: you can also squeeze some lemon drops or even add some drops of balsamic winegar.

Remove from the grid, add a pinch of salt and serve.
