Mix together first eight ingredients to make marinade. Marinate shrimp & scallops in mixture for at least 30 min. Melt butter over medium low heat. Whisk remaining ingredients into melted butter and saute for 10 min. This sauce is best if it sits longer or overnight, to meld the flavors, and is then reheated.

Grill shrimp & Scallops, preferably on skewers, over fire until done (about 5 min.). Do not overcook. Serve with melted ginger-butter.
