A recipe from Australia, featuring scallops grilled on the barbi! Light seasoning enables the sweet taste of the scallops to come through. Posted for ZWT5.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse scallops in cold water; pat dry with paper toweling. Halve any large scallops.
  2. In a bowl, combine dry white wine, lemon juice, butter, garlic, salt and pepper. Add scallops. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 1 hour. Drain; reserve marinade.
  3. On 8 skewers thread scallops, allowing some space between each scallop. Sprinkle lightly with paprika. Grill over medium coals for 8 to 10 minutes or till scallops are tneder. Turn often and brush with reserved marinade. (Or broil 4 inches from the heat about 10 minutes, turning once -- but grilling outside over coals is best!). Serve with kiwi fruit, if desired.

Must admit that I used the broiler for this recipe this time, but look forward to doing these GREAT TASTING SCALLOPS on the BBQ another time! Did use lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P, & even found 3 Kiwi fruits that did wonders with the presentation while adding their own subdued flavor!

These were very good. I doubled the marinade recipe and also grilled about 1 pound of shrimp to go with these. It is similar to some other grilled seafood recipes I've tried, but this was nice because it wasn't overly salty, as I find some to be. A great basic way to grill scallops. I used another reviewer's suggestion to replace the butter with olive oil, and that worked well.

I really liked the taste of this marinade. Since it's winter and very chilly outside, I just pan seared the scallops with some of the marinade, and it worked perfectly. I'll definitely make these again.
