16 raw peeled and de-veined U-8 shrimp with tails on

16 large sea scallops

1/2 cup hot chili oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves

1 tablespoon seafood seasoning (recommended: Old Bay)

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 cup water

2 cups red pepper concentrate

1 stick salted butter, chilled

2 red bell peppers, sliced, for garnish

1 bunch scallions, sliced, for garnish

Chive oil, for garnish


  1. Prepare a charcoal grill for cooking.

  3. Dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup of water.
  4. Bring the red pepper concentrate to a boil, than whisk in the cornstarch slurry a little at a time until thickened. Turn off the heat and whisk in the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time. Season with salt and pepper.
