6 medium shrimp, shelled and deveined with tail left intact
3/4 Lb sea scallops
1 large green pepper, seeded, cut into 1" pieces and blanch in boiling water for 3 minutes
1/2 Lb fresh pineapple, cut into small wedges
1 medium onion, cut into 6 wedges
1/2 cup dry sherry
2 Tbs sesame-seed oil
1 Tbs sesame seeds, crushed
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1/4 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbs grated fresh ginger

Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a shallow bowl. Coat the shrimp and scallops with the marinade, and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Drain, reserving the marinade. Thread the shellfish on six skewers, alternating with the vegetables and pineapple. Broil or grill the brochettes 4-6 inches from the heat for 8-10 minutes, or until the shrimp and scallops are cooked. Turn several times and brush often with the reserved marinade.
