  • Preheat the broiler and position a rack 6 inches from the heat. Arrange the shrimp, lobster tails and oyster shell halves in a roasting pan in a single layer. Place the scallops in the 6 flattest oyster shells. Place the oysters in the remaining shells. Spoon 3/4 cup of the vinaigrette over the seafood, being sure to coat them completely. Season with pepper and broil until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Transfer the seafood to plates and drizzle with some of the vinaigrette, passing the toast and any remaining vinaigrette at the table.

Suggested Pairing

A zesty Australian Riesling will highlight the seafood's sweet, briny flavors.
