Jop’s Lemon Garlic Scallop Skewers

Grilled Lemon Garlic Scallops

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

¼ Cup of Butter Flavored EVOO

1 slice of Sweet Onion, finely chopped

Three Mushrooms (baby bella) finely chopped

2 Cloves of Garlic finely chopped

Juice of 1 Lemon

6 Medium Sea Scallops

A pinch of Sea Salt

4 wooden skewers- soaked in water

Great Summer Fruit Beer or A bottle of Pinot Gregio

 

Directions:

Lightly oil your grill grate with a small amount of the EVOO to prevent sticking

Preheat the grill to Medium/High heat

 

1.In a saucepan at medium heat on the stove, combine the EVOO, Chopped Onion, Mushroom and Garlic  and cook until soft and translucent (about 5 minutes).

2. Remove the mixture from the stove and add in the juice from the Lemon and the Sea Salt

3.  Place the scallops in a bowl, pour the Onion/Mushroom/Garlic mixture over the scallops and lightly stir to coat the Scallops.   Let the scallops sit in the bowl for 5 minutes

4.  Remove the Scallops from the bowl and pour the remaining Onion/Mushroom/Garlic mixture back into the saucepan.

5.  Take two skewers and place them side by side about a ½ inch apart.  Thread 3 of the scallops onto the double skewer and repeat this process for the other three – so you have two – three scallop skewers

6.  Place the skewers on the pre-oiled grill grate and cook for about 4 minutes on each side – when the scallops are firm, they are done.

7.  Reheat the Onion/Mushroom/Garlic mixture on high heat for 3 minutes in the saucepan and use as a topping for the cooked scallops.

7.5 Serve with a Great Fruity Summer Beer or Nice Pinot Gregio.
