Toss vegetables with 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds and oil to coat. Divide and alternate vegetables on four skewers. If possible, place all scallops on one skewer. String shrimp on sets of parallel skewers so shrimp will lie flat on grill. When grill is hot, place vegetables in center of grill and cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
