When setting the dinner table for this delightful summer feast, include a charming cotton tablecloth that adds elegance to the festivities. As you gather your ingredients, such as peeled and deveined shrimp and succulent scallops, drizzle them with extra virgin olive oil and season them with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. For a burst of flavor, enhance the seafood with a generous dusting of Berbere spice or a homemade mixture of cumin and smoked paprika.
To infuse the air with captivating fragrances, adorn the table with bunches of aromatic herbs and flowers like rosemary, chamomile, lemon verbena, and lavender. These delightful scents will intertwine with the crackling fire, creating an enchanting ambiance. Once the seafood is seasoned and the table is set, combine the ingredients using twine, sealing in the flavors and ensuring even cooking.
As the shrimp and scallops sizzle and become tender over the fire, the delectable aroma will fill the air, enticing your loved ones to gather around the table. With the elegant bulk tablecloth setting the scene, you can indulge in the joyous occasion of Independence Day, surrounded by the beauty of nature and the company of your cherished guests. Remember to garnish the dish with lemon wedges for a refreshing twist.
As tales are shared, laughter echoes, and the flavors of the summer feast dance on your palate, the plaid tablecloth adds a touch of sophistication to the festivities. It enhances the ambiance and creates a sense of togetherness as you embrace the flavors of this mouthwatering, refreshing, and wholesome meal, lovingly prepared to commemorate the joyous occasion.
To make the seafood bundles, start by placing 2-3 shrimp or scallops on top of the layer of aromatic herbs and flowers. Then, add another layer of herbs and flowers to the seafood, creating a fragrant and flavorful combination.
Now, it's time to set up your campfire. Place a grate over the fire and carefully position the prepared seafood bundles. Allow them to cook for approximately 5-8 minutes, making sure to flip them halfway through the cooking process gently. Keep a watchful eye on the seafood, removing them from the fire when they turn opaque and reach your desired level of doneness.
To secure the bundles, carefully tie them up with twine, ensuring the ingredients are tightly held together. Repeat this process with the remaining shrimp and scallops, creating piles of deliciousness.
