dashed separator
Servings: 2
Ingredients and Preparation
Ingredients Measures
Lemon juice 2 tablespoons
Olive oil 2 tablespoons
Fresh chives, chopped 1 + 1 tablespoon
Lemon zest 1 teaspoon
Salt ¼ teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper 1/8 teaspoon
Sea scallops ¾ pound
Cherry tomatoes 12
Metal skewers (or wooden skewers soaked in water for at least 20 minutes) 4


Directions
  1. Prepare grill or broiler.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, 1 tablespoon of the chives, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Add scallops and toss until thoroughly coated.
  3. Thread scallops and cherry tomatoes onto the skewers and brush thoroughly with the lemon-chive mixture.
  4. Place scallop kebabs on a lightly oiled grill rack or a nonstick broiler pan. Grill for 8-12 minutes, turning regularly, until opaque in center and lightly browned. If broiling, broil for 6-8 minutes, turning a few times, until opaque in center and lightly browned. It’s easy to overcook scallops, so keep a close eye on them to make sure they don’t burn.
  5. Garnish kebabs with remaining tablespoon of chopped chives.
