Grilled Scallops in Lemon Herb Marinade

18 Aug

At summer time I love to keep the heat outside and use the grill as much as possible. Sweet scallops pair well with lemon juice and herbs. This delicious recipe is easy, and so fast that you can have impressive appetizer or dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.  The scallops can also be broiled in the oven.

  • juice of two lemons
  • 1 tbs low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • few drops of hot sauce
  • 1 lb of sea scallops

Heat the grill to medium high heat. Mix the marinade and place the dried scallops into the mix. Let them sit on counter for 5 minutes. If you leave them in too long, the lemon juice will chemically cook the scallops. Thread the scallops onto skewers. Grill 4-5 minutes each side. Do not over cook. The scallops continue to cook after you take them off the grill.
