Lemon Grilled Scallops

Scallops are decandent and rich and one of our favorites. This is our favorite way to serve scallops, simple and fresh off the grill!

You'll need:
  • 2 pounds of large sea scallops
  • 3 lemons
  • 2 cloves fresh chopped garlic
  • 2 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Skewers, wooden or metal | if wooden, make sure you soak them in water to prevent burning
  • Non-stick spray
Here's what to do:
  1. Wash your scallops and set aside.
  2. Combine the juice from 2 lemons in medium sized bowl.
  3. Add garlic, basil, salt and pepper.
  4. Toss in scallops and cover bowl. Let marinate in refrigerator for at least one hour.
  5. Light the grill and load your scallops up on skewers.
  6. Grills scallops for about 3 minutes on each side.
  7. Finish with fresh squeezed lemon juice.   

We love this recipe, especially in the warm months! Try these scallops served with fresh grilled aspargus and roased red potatoes or atop a mixed greens salad with balsamic viniagrette.

Alternate preparation: Instead of grilling, add some olive oil to a pan over medium-high heat. Sautee the scallops until golden brown. Finish with fresh squeezed lemon juice.
