Herbed Scallop Kebabs

Herbed Scallop Kebabs

Grilled under a watchful eye to avoid overcooking, these skewers are a snap to prepare. A light lemon-and-herb marinade allows the sweet, succulent flavor of the scallops to shine. Be sure to purchase sea scallops, which are a good size for kebabs.

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 1/4 pounds sea scallops, trimmed
  • 1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high. Place a fine-mesh nonstick grill topper on grill to heat.

Step 2

Whisk lemon juice, thyme, oil, lemon zest, pepper and salt in a small bowl.

Step 3

Toss scallops with 2 tablespoons of the lemon mixture; reserve the remaining mixture for basting the kebabs. Thread the scallops and the lemon wedges onto four 10-inch-long skewers (see Tip), placing 6 to 7 scallops and 2 lemon wedges on each skewer.

Step 4

Lightly oil the grill rack (see Tip). Cook the kebabs, turning from time to time and basting with the reserved lemon mixture, until the scallops are opaque in the center, 8 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
