Nice quick recipe for your next BBQ. Preparation time does not include one hour marinating time. The liquid marinade will give more of a steamed rather than baked texture. If you like spicy food don't be scared with the chili flakes, it will make the final step all the much better.


  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Refrigerate covered for one hour or more.
  3. Place a few scallops on each skewer.
  4. Grill on BBQ over medium heat for around 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally and pouring over reserved marinade.
  5. Serve with remaining beer.

Congrats! Your Recipe was featured as our "Recipe of the Day" on our homepage! (7/17/11) July 18, 2011

We served this as part of our Christmas BBQ dinner and it went down a treat. I used a fresh chilli and a mixture of scallops, prawns and flathead fillets (a little over a kilo - so doubled marinade). Also had to sub spring onion (scallion) for onion due to a family members allergy. Definately a keeper. Thanks Peter.

Very easy to make!And very tasty! Made enough for 3servings.I marinated grilled red onions along with this! Just a bit of advice discard the marinade or cook it before using the. Also lightly coat the scallops with oil before grilling or oil the grill so the scallops don`t stick. Be sure to leave the scallops till browned on one side before turning so you don`t lose the scallops from sticking to the grill. Thanks Peter!
