Categories: Fish, Herbs
Yield: 4 Servings

1/2 c Applewood chips
1/2 lb Large shrimp (about 12),
Peeled and deveined
1/2 lb Sea scallops (about 12)
1 c Chopped fresh basil (leaves
And stems)

Soak the applewood chips in water for 1 hour.

Soak four 6-inch amboo skewers in water for 15 minutes. Thread the shrimp
and scallops alternately onto each skewer.

Line a wok or a straight0sided fry pan with a double thickness of aluminum
foil. Drain the applewood chips and combine them with the basil in the
bottom. Insert a low rack that wil keep the skewers raised, but still
allow a cover to fit.

Place the skewers across the rack and cover the pan. If using a wok, ring 2
wet towels around the cover; for a fry pan, drape a wet towel over the
cover and secure tightly.

Smoke the kebabs for 15 minutes over medium-high heat. Remove the pan from
the heat and set it aside for 5 minutes before uncovering. Serve
