How To Make grilled antipasto platter

  • 1
    Soak 12 long skewers in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning. Thread 4 scallops on each of 4 skewers and 4 shrimp of each of another 4 skewers. Thread 6 mushrooms on each of 2 more skewers. Cut prosciutto into 2x1-inch strips. Wrap 2 asparagus spears together with 2 strips of prosciutto; secure with toothpick. Repeat with remaining asparagus. Wrap each artichoke heart in 1 strip of prosciutto; thread on 2 remaining skewers.
  • 2
    Place skewers, asparagus, zucchini and bell peppers on baking sheet. Reserve 1/4 cup Lemon Baste. Brush remaining Lemon Baste liberally over ingredients on baking sheet.
  • 3
    Grill skewers, asparagus bundles, zucchini and red peppers, on uncovered grill, 7 to 10 minutes until vegetables are tender, seafood firms up and turns opaque and prosciutto wrapped around vegetables is crisp, turning once or twice.
