Do you love seafood? 

You have to try this recipe, it was the best seafood I have prepared in a long time - and it was so easy.

It only took about 10 to 15 minutes to get it ready and exactly 15 minutes to a perfectly cooked meal. 

I saw a version of this on Facebook, so we altered it to fit us. Let me know what you think!
Grilled Seafood Boil


  • 2 lbs. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 lb. of scallops(or more to taste)

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 packages smoked Kielbasa sausage thinly sliced
