Diver Scallops Grilled on Rosemary

For easier turning on the grill and added rosemary flavor, use two rosemary sprigs as each skewer.

Prep Time

    •    Prep and cook time: 35 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


    •    1/8 tsp salt
    •    1 tbsp olive oil
    •    12 large sea scallops
    •    Garnish: lemon slices
    •    Hot cooked basmati rice
    •    1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
    •    8 (12-inch) fresh rosemary sprigs
    •    1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary


  1. ombine scallops and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; cover and chill 30 minutes.
  2. Pick leaves off 6 inches of one end of each rosemary sprig, leaving the other end intact. Soak rosemary sprigs in water in a shallow dish 20 minutes.
  3. Place 2 rosemary skewers side by side, leaving a small space between. Thread 3 scallops onto bare part of rosemary skewers. Repeat with remaining rosemary and scallops. Grill over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Serve on a bed of basmati rice with lemon slices, if desired.

NOTE: For smoky flavor, cut slices of prosciutto in half lengthwise and wrap 1 piece around each scallop before skewering.
