Go to your fishmonger and tell her you want 2 lbs of U10 Dry-packed fresh Atlantic Scallops. They should smell sweet, be off-white to pink or orange in colour and look pretty much like a bag of marshmallows, which is what they’re going to taste like….a beautiful, crispy marshmallow…mmmm.
Sorry, got sidetracked by the marshmallow imagery.
This one is simple folks (but go ahead and tell your guests it took years of training to master, it can be our secret).
Pre-heat your barbecue to 425 F. Toss your scallops in:
- 4 tbsp XVO
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- Salt and pepper
Grill two minutes per side. Done. Perfect.
