Recipe: Grilled Marinated Scallops With Ginger and Sesame
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
- Zest and juice of 1 lime
- 24 large sea scallops
- 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
- Lime wedges
In a shallow dish, combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, ginger, lime zest, and lime juice. Add the scallops, turn to coat, and set aside for 30 to 40 minutes.
Build a hot charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill. Toast the sesame seeds in a small skillet over medium heat until they turn one shade darker, about 4 minutes.
Thread the scallops on four metal skewers, placing them so that the flat surfaces are exposed. Grill, turning once, until the scallops are lightly browned and no longer translucent, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Sprinkle with sesame, garnish with lime wedges, and serve.
