BBQ Lemon Scallops

"Another way to enjoy scallops in their shell on the barbecue. If you don't enjoy lemon enough to eat with the rind intact you could also just try sprinkling with lemon juice."

  1. Delicious!! These were so easy to prepare, prefect dish as an appetiser. The only problem I had was there wasn't enough. I altered the serving and made 24 of them. Thank you Peter J
  2. i am not able to get scallops in their shells, unfortunately, we live inlnd and they arrive frozen. so i placed these in a baking pan. i melted some butter and sauteed a few cloves of garlic, then poured this over the scallops. i sprinkled them with fresh ground pepper and fresh dill from my garden, then covered all with the sliced lemons. i baked this for 15 minutes at 400f, these were delicious! and great for low carb diets too.


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=> <br /><img src= alt= /></a></p>
