Mediterranean shrimp and scallops

Eating healthy does not have to taste bad and this recipe will become a regular menu item that will have them coming back for more!

Just a few tips before we get too far. Marinade your shrimp in the seasoning in #2 to ensure they have the best flavor! Any seafood can be substituted or added to this recipe and the results will still amaze! Ensure your shrimp are peeled and cleaned for optimal results. Fresh is always better but frozen shrimp will work, just be sure to thaw, rinse and pay dry.

Because my husband thinks he will starve when we eat healthier, I have used filler sides for him like roasted potatoes, sweet potatoes, or cottage cheese. I find this perfectly satisfying on its own!
